Champions League: Europe's premier club competition to be restructured for 2018/19 season

Premier League holders Leicester will face Porto, Club Brugge and Copenhagen in Group G.

Elderson Echiejile's AS Monaco will tackle CSKA Moscow, Tottenham Hotspur and German giants Bayer Leverkusen in Group E.

Last season's semi-finalists Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid will resume hostilities in Group D and are joined by PSV Eindhoven and Rostov.

The Foxes, fancied as relegation candidates last season, shocked the world to go on and win the Premier League title and in the process earned a spot at Europe's top table.

Points will be awarded for previous European titles but weighted towards more recent success in the Champions League and Europa League.

Adjustments to the current format of the Champions League can only begin in 2018 as that is when the next three-year commercial cycle starts.

At present, the fourth-placed team from England has to take part in a play-off, as Manchester City did this year when beating Steaua Bucharest 6-0 on aggregate.

Spurs' draw also seemed relatively kind and in Monaco they will be facing a side they beat 4-1 at home in the Europa League group stages last season. It's good for Pep because he knows Borussia very well from his time at Bayern and Barcelona as well so we will see.

Patrick Roberts WILL be allowed to play for Celtic against City in this season's Champions League.

The Champions League will continue to have a 32-team group stage and a 16-club knockout phase and the Europa League remains at 48 teams, although in a new development the winners will automatically qualify for the Champions League group stage as now they can potentially take part in a play-off round.

There will be no changes to the tournaments system, only for the entries into the group stage. "For this reason we must fight for everything". But who will face who in the draw?

"Both games against Borussia Monchengladbach were tough a year ago, even though we won them both".

This will be the eighth time Celtic has played in the group stage of Europe's elite competition, while they haven't been there since the 2013-14 season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have a tricky set of fixtures after being pooled with French heavyweights PSG, Basel and Ludogorets in Group A.
