The draw: As it happened

17:16 AC Milan join Barcelona in Group H, Schalke are with Chelsea in Group E, PSG and Benfica head Group C, CSKA Moscow and Bayern Munich are in Group D, Juventus join Real Madrid in Group B, Atletico Madrid are with Porto in Group G so, once again, the final name out of the hat is Shakhtar Donetsk who will be United's opponents.

17:15 Johan Cruyff is now taking over the honours and he pulls Marseille out first from pot two. The French side are pitted with Arsenal in Group F. 

17:07 After Real Madrid (Group B), Bayern Munich (Group D), Barcelona (Group H), Benfica (Group C) and Porto (Group G), United are placed in Group A.

17:04 Chelsea are next as the London clubs are allocated their groups. The Blues go into pool E.

17:03 Billy McNeill has some problems cracking open the ball but Arsenal are first out. The Gunners go into Group F.

17:02 The 32 clubs will soon find out their fate as the preamble is over and we are ready to start getting down to the serious business.

16:57 2014 Champions League ambassador Luis Figo has taken centre stage and talks about a dream coming true when he won the competition with Real Madrid.

16:53 Former Celtic great Billy McNeill brings the giant trophy to the stage and recollects lifting it as Bhoys captain in 1967.

16:50 A montage of last season's tournament is being shown. Ronaldo is shown opting not to celebrate at Old Trafford but, thankfully, there was no repeat of the Nani red-card incident.

16:45 The draw ceremony is underway in Monaco's Grimaldi Forum. Ex-United striker Michael Owen will help to conduct proceedings once the main business of selecting the teams starts.
