There is an early difference of opinion among the bookmakers for which of the 77 competing teams should be favourites to win the 2014-15 Champions League, Ladbrokes siding with Real Madrid at 4/1 ahead of Bayern Munich at a best-priced 9/2.

But other firms have Bayern at the head of the market, while bet365 are unable to separate the duo at this stage and are happy to lay best odds of 9/2 about both clubs who contested one of last season’s semi-finals, Real prevailing 5-0 on aggregate.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side did, of course, go on to complete ‘La Decima’, an unprecedented 10th European Cup success, but had a close shave in the competition’s first ever final between two teams from the same city.

Atletico Madrid were ahead entering stoppage time, but Sergio Ramos snatched a last-gasp equaliser with a header from a corner and Real went on to run out 4-1 winners in the extra half hour.

As La Liga champions, Atletico will be back for another tilt along with Barcelona, while Athletic Bilbao complete the Spanish contingent and go into the play-off round in August along with the likes of Arsenal, Bayer Leverkusen, Napoli and Porto.

Like Spain, England and Germany will have four representatives with Bayern joined in the group phase by Borussia Dortmund and Schalke while Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea are also guaranteed to be involved through to December.

Two clubs each from Italy, France and Portugal are also confirmed as going straight into the group phase namely Juventus, Roma, Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon.

The 22 certain to participate in the round-robin phase are completed by Shakhtar Donetsk, CSKA Moscow, Ajax, Galatasaray, Anderlecht, Olympiakos and Basel.

Scottish champions Celtic will need to come through three two-legged ties if they are to take their place in the group phase once more and saw off their initial opponents KR Reykjavik of Iceland ultimately with ease, 5-0 on aggregate.
