This year's final will be staged at Atletico's Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid on June 1, 2019.

Juventus will meet Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League 2018/19 group stage as Cristiano Ronaldo prepares himself to face his former side in the Group H clash of UCL.

The Group B consist of five-time winners FC Barcelona, three-time victors Inter Milan, English side Tottenham Hotspur and 1988 champions PSV Eindhoven.

Group C was closest to a "Group of Death", as it pitted Liverpool, Paris St Germain and Napoli against each other.

Former Real Madrid and Brazil forward, Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, popularly known as Ronaldo has reacted to the 2018/2019 UEFA's Champions League draws.

There will also be a return to Spain for Ronaldo as Group H is filled out with La Liga club Valencia, as well as Swiss champions Young Boys.

The first round of group games will be played on September 18 and 19, with the last matches on December 11 and 12. Teams from the same country will be kept apart in the group stage as well.

Four Liverpool players called up for England squad
However, there are returns for Joe Gomez and Adam Lallana, both who missed the tournament in Russian Federation due to injury. Southgate attempted to play down England's interest in West Ham's Declan Rice, stressing that he was still "with Ireland".

But there is little evidence from an illustrious career of an ability to turn things around once the going gets tough. United have lost two of their first three Premier League games for the first time since 1992-93.

Sessions eventually did recuse himself, giving his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, the ultimate authority to appoint a special counsel. McGahn has been working to appoint judges, including Supeme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, to federal courts.

Last season's runners-up Liverpool, big-spending French league champions Paris St Germain and Carlo Ancelotti's Napoli were thrown together in the pick of the groups while holders Real Madrid must face last season's semi-finalists AS Roma.

"It's a very tough group but the most important thing for us is that we have managed to get into the group stage and compete at this level", Red Star president Svetozar Mijailovic told reporters. Red Star won the old European Cup in 1991, one year before the format changed.

We are an even longer way off the 2012-14 period when Premier League sides were struggling in the group stage more than should have reasonably been expected.

The Champions League is now dominated more than ever before by clubs from the continent's biggest domestic leagues.

Allegri added that the choice of Modric was "a personal choice" of those who voted "and, as such, must be respected". "Our destiny is in our own hands", said Juve CEO Giuseppe Marotta. Benfica are the strongest team of the remaining three while Ajax could potentially provide enough issues to get the results they need.

Lokomotiv Moscow, seeded in the top pot as Russia's champion, will play Porto, Schalke and Galatasaray in Group D.
