this year, while Atletico Madrid and Olympique Marseille are also big names. Ukraine champions Shakhtar Donetsk and Russian title-holders CSKA Moscow present long away trips and a stern test once you get there.
In Pot Three, United cannot draw Manchester City (no teams from the same association are drawn together), but Borussia Dortmund are the major threat in that group, while Zenit, Bayer Leverkusen, Ajax (four-times winners), Basel, Olympiakos and Galatasaray all have knockout experience.
The final pot also has some strong teams, with two former winners - Scottish champions Celtic and Romanian leaders Steaua Bucharest - while Serie A runners-up Napoli are a growing force and fourth-placed Spanish side Real Socieded are back in the tournament after a 10-year absence.
United's official travel provider Thomas Cook Sport will be offering supporter packages to follow the team during the UEFA Champions League group stages.
