Good transfer that of William! Good luck, you had a pre-season quite diversified, but they were tough teams!

Anderelcht have been handed a daunting task to qualify for the Champions League knockout phase after the draw placed them in Group A with Borussia Dortmund, Antonio Conte's Juventus and and Swiss side Luzern.
While Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United will all be confident of qualifying from their respective groups,

For City, there is real hope that Manuel Pellegrini, can guide them to the knockout phase. The Chilean's team will face Valenica, in Group C but also have trips to Marseille and Maribor, His captain, Vincent Kompany, who hopes to recover from a groin injury for the competition's resumption on 17 September, tweeted: "Interesting draw. Big year for us."

United and Chelsea appear to have the easiest route through of the English clubs. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has never managed in the competition proper, has to negotiate Group G which consists of Shakhtar Donetsk, Barcelona and Sparktak Moscow. José Mourinho will be confident he can lead Chelsea through Group F in which Porto, Olympiakos and APOEL await.

Regarding Real Madrids draw, Ancelotti told the Marca News: "It is the best and the worst draw we could have got. In terms of glamour I don't think it comes any better than Sporting Lisbon, Leverkusen and group lightweights Molde. It is probably the least difficult groups we could have got.

The groups

Group A: Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Anderlecht, Luzern.

Group B: Paris Saint Germain, PSV, CSKA Moscow, Sparta Prague

Group C: Manchester City , Valencia , Marseille, Maribor.

Group D: Real Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen, Sporting Lisbon, Molde.

Group E: Bayern Munich,Napoli, Galatasaray, Lech Poznan.

Group F: Chelsea,Porto , Olympiakos, APOEL.

Group G: AS Monaco, Atlético Madrid, Gladbach, Fiorentina.

Group H: Barcelona, Manchester United, Shakhtar Donetsk, Spartak Moscow.
Unlucky will be very hard to defeat Juve or Dortmund
Good luck in the Europa!
Very rough draw indeed! Good luck, mate!
