Top six conclusions: Champions League draw

The high-rollers meet in Monte Carlo for draw
EMP-6104727.jpg
1. Liverpool are going to struggle. In their current form and up against PSV Eindhoven, Marseille and Atletico Madrid, it could spell trouble.
2. The Champions League just loves to pit Manchester United and Celtic. They met in the 2006-07 group stage too. Man Yoo should progress easily enough though. Villarreal are tricky customers, but they will expect to beat Celtic and Aalborg of Denmark.
3. Chelsea are also dead certs for the next round. Roma, Bordeaux and CFR Cluj equals easy group.


4. Arsenal’s group doesn’t look so straightforward. Porto, Fenerbahce and Dynamo Kiev will provide solid opposition.
5. Talking of which, CFR Cluj must surely be one of the most obscure teams to make the group stages ever. They are the Romanian champions, by the way!
6. And talking of obscure teams, Bate Borisov (Belarusian champions, if you are interested) must be bricking it. Real Madrid, Juventus and Zenit St Petersburg are in their group.
