Thursday 01 October 2020 10:30

The Champions League group-stage draw takes place today (Thursday, 16:00 BST) with the picture already clearer for Manchester United as all four pots are now confirmed.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reds are in Pot Two and will face one team from each of the other pools, which will be selected in Geneva at the UEFA ceremony.

United are one of four English sides in the competition, with the ties due to begin later this month and scheduled to finish in early December, although provision can be made to extend this if matches are postponed, due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
