Pot luck: Big guns out to avoid Champions League surprise

The draw for the Champions League group stages takes place on Thursday afternoon with Europe's heavyweights set to learn their fate.

All eyes will be on the draw pots come 16.30 BST, with Gianni Infantino and Michel Platini taking to the stage in an attempt to ensure everything runs smoothly.

And there could be a nasty surprise in store for the likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid, who are sitting pretty in Pot 1, with Manchester City and Napoli lurking in Pots 3 and 4 respectively.

AC Milan, PSG and Juventus are the stellar names occupying Pot 2, and the English contingent making up Pot 1 will undoubtedly be desperate to avoid reeling in last year's finalists Borussia Dortmund, who sit in Pot 3.
