The last team to win the European Cup in consecutive seasons were AC Milan in 1989 and 1990 before the competition was expanded into its modern guise, but Real are the 7/2 favourites with bookmaker Betfred to end the long wait for a back-to-back victor.

Completing Group B along with Real Madrid and Liverpool are Swiss club Basel and newcomers Ludogorets Razgrad, the Bulgarian outfit who booked their place in the last 32 when their centre-half Cosmin Moti saved two penalties in a shootout against Steaua Bucharest after goalkeeper Vladislav Stoyanov had been sent off.

The English club who fared best in the group-stage draw were Chelsea, whose odds to win the Champions League were cut to 6/1 by Betfred after being pooled with Schalke for the second consecutive campaign, plus Sporting Lisbon and Maribor.

And there was also a sense of déjà vu for both Arsenal and Manchester City, who face familiar opposition as well.

Arsenal are in Group D with Borussia Dortmund for the third time in four seasons, both clubs having finished on 12 points along with Napoli last term when it was the Italians who bowed out early.

The English and German duo are joined this time by Galatasaray and Anderlecht, with Arsene Wenger’s side facing a third trip to Turkey in the space of two seasons having beaten Fenerbahce and Besiktas in the play-off round last term and this campaign respectively.

And there is even more of the same for Manchester City because the Group E line-up is almost an exact replica of their pool from 12 months ago, with Bayern Munich and CSKA Moscow this time joined by Serie A runners-up Roma to increase the difficulty of the task awaiting the English champions.

The pick of the remaining pools is Group F, in which four-time champions Barcelona will play Paris Saint-Germain, Ajax and APOEL Nicosia.
