Today is the day that 32 teams who have made it to the Champions League draw proper learn their group stage fate.

It has been a quick turnaround for Uefa given last season's final happened just over a month ago, with Bayern Munich beating PSG in Lisbon after the finals were shifted into a mini-tournament in Portugal following the coronavirus pandemic.

As for this season, the Premier League's four representatives are Liverpool, Man City, Manchester United and Chelsea - and Uefa appears to be confident that a full competition format can be squeezed into the 2020/21 season.

With the Uefa ceremony underway in Nyon, follow the draw LIVE as it happens...

  • Group A: Bayern, Atletico Madrid, Red Bull Salzburg, Lokomotiv Moscow

  • Group B: Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter Milan, Monchengladbach

  • Group C: Porto, Man City, Olympiacos, Marseille

  • Group E: Sevilla, Chelsea, Krasnodar, Rennes

  • Group F: Zenit, Dortmund, Lazio, Club Brugge

  • Group G: Juventus, Barcelona, Dynamo Kiev, Ferencvaros
