The bookmakers are having difficulty deciding which team should be favourites to win the 2014-15 Champions League, Stan James siding with Real Madrid at 7/2 ahead of Bayern Munich at a best-priced 4/1.

But other firms, such as William Hill, have Bayern at the head of the market, while Betfred are unable to separate the duo at this stage and are happy to lay 4/1 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 also be back for another tilt along with Barcelona, while Athletic Bilbao complete the Spanish contingent and go into the play-off round along with the likes of Arsenal, Bayer Leverkusen, Napoli and Porto.

Arsenal have been drawn against Turkish club Besiktas, playing the second leg at home, but with Napoli and Athletic Bilbao having been paired together it means either Spain or Italy will lose one of their contenders before the group stage.

Germany could have four representatives in the group stage with Bayern definitely joined 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.
