Liverpool are facing a potential group of death in the Champions League group stage draw.

Although supporters have been able to predict the formation of the pots up to a certain point, the final arrangements have finally been decided and the draw itself will take place in the proceeding 24 hours.

Lucien Favre's men will be aiming to get out of the group stage, having failed to do so last season.

The Reds face the prospect of a nightmare draw possibly featuring Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan.

Real Madrid have reignited their interest in signing Manchester City's Raheem Sterling, according to Sky Sports.

Sterling finished as City's second top scorer last season, netting 23 times in all competitions as his side won the Premier League title and the EFL Cup.

Senator Sinodinos walked in to the party room meeting at Mr Turnbull's side with another of his staunchest backers, Craig Laundy. He delayed calling the meeting until he received a petition showing the names of the 43 people who wanted a spill.


Manchester City are in pot one along with defending champions Real Madrid, Europa League winners Atletico Madrid and respective European league winners Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Lokomotiv Moscow.

Meanwhile, pot three contains some seriously good teams that could cause Dortmund some serious problems.

Red Star Belgrade, PSV Eindhoven, Young Boys, AEK Athens, Benfica and Ajax were the teams who qualified at the last minute and have slotted themselves in the third and fourth pots respectively. Pots two to four are determined by the club coefficient rankings.

Here is a look at the best possible draw Liverpool could land. Galatasaray is the cliched "tough place to go" in the Champions League, while Swiss Super League side Young Boys make their debut in the competition.

Champions League draw format - How does it work?

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool are undoubtedly the team to avoid from pot three, although there are plenty of other threats for the giants.
