Adapted from JB's August Preview......

UEFA Champions League Group Stage Draw, Thursday, 24th August 8, 2017

The circus begins at 5pm (BST) and is scheduled to last an incredible 2 whole hours which sums up UEFA perfectly - conflated and with overblown sense of self-importance. Talk about bloated.....

The season's biggest quest and joint priority with the Premier League starts here. We are more than overdue a kind opening draw but let's assume that UEFA have still got it in for us, especially if The Blues land another big name signing before the alleged 'hot balls' are distributed!

Dates for your diary...

12-13/09/17: Group stage, matchday one
26-27/09/17: Group stage, matchday two
17-18/10/17: Group stage, matchday three
31/10/17-01/11/17: Group stage, matchday four
21-22/11/17: Group stage, matchday five
05-06/12/17: Group stage, matchday six

From the OS:-

A seventh Champions League campaign beckons for Manchester City as we prepare to discover our group stage fate this week.

Europe’s elite club competition resumes in September and here’s everything you need to know ahead of the group stage draw…

When
The draw begins at 5pm (BST) on Thursday 24 August and is set to last two and a quarter hours.

Where
Monaco’s Grimaldi Forum will again be the venue as the 32 qualifiers discover who they will be face in the first stage of this year’s competition.

Watch

In the UK, BT Sport 2 will be broadcasting the draw from 4.30pm (BST), while it will also be streamed live on UEFA.com.

We’ll also have full coverage on Twitter and here on mancity.com.

Who

The thirty two teams are split into eight pots of four for the draw, with the holders and the league winners of the top seven football associations forming Pot 1.

Pots two, three and four are decided by the UEFA club coefficient rankings as they were at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

City are confirmed in Pot 2 and will therefore face one team from each of the other three pots, but cannot play another English team in the group stage.

Pot 1: Real Madrid, Bayern, Chelsea, Juventus, Benfica, Monaco, Spartak Moskva, Shakhtar Donetsk

Pot 2: Barcelona, Atlético Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Dortmund, Manchester City, Porto, Manchester United

Pot 3: Basel, Anderlecht, Roma, Besiktas

Pot TBC: Feyenoord, Red Bull Leipzig, Spurs

Remaining qualifiers

Ten group stage spots are still to be determined, with the following second legs of the final qualifying round to take place on 22/23 August.

Napoli v Nice
Hoffenheim v Liverpool
Sporting Lisbon v Steaua Bucuresti
Istanbul Basaksehir v Sevilla
Young Boys v CSKA Moscow
Qarabag v FC Copenhagen
APOEL v Slavia Prague
Olympiacos v Rijeka
Celtic v Astana
Hapoel Beer-Sheva v Maribor

Dates
Matchday one: 12-13 September
Matchday two: 26-27 September
Matchday three: 17-18 October
Matchday four: 31 October-1 November
Matchday five: 21-22 November
Matchday six: 5-6 December

Final
The final of this year’s competition takes place at the NSC Olimpiyskiy in Kiev on 26 May 2018.

Real, Roma and Leipzig.


I hope your reverse psychology works a whole lot better than your loincloth and prayer-mat.
