Champions League: Olivier Ntcham sets his sights on facing Paris Saint-Germain

Celtic, meanwhile, could potentially be getting the above giants and one of Liverpool/Tottenham or Roma/Napoli, in a draw that would continue their rotten luck in group stage pairings.

Real Madrid won Europe's elite club competition in Cardiff in June, becoming the first team in the Champions League era to win back-to-back titles.

Pot 1: Real Madrid, Monaco, Spartak Moscow, Shakhtar Donetsk, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus and Benfica. This may lead to some of the teams in Pot 1 already having their placement determined before they're even drawn, especially English and Spanish clubs. The champions of France, Portugal, Russia and Ukraine are automatically placed into Pot 1, which bumps big clubs like Barcelona, Atlético Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund into Pot 2.

When will the group stages be played?

The final takes place at the NSK Olimpiyskyi in Kiev on May 26, 2018.

Everton will hope to be in the draw alongside Arsenal, who are in an unfamiliar competition, starting a season out of the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.
