It's Perfect - Genk Star Welcomes Being Placed In Liverpool's Group

On the other hand, the champions league draw put Liverpool in Group E alongside Napoli, Salzburg and Genk, which is considered easy compared to Barcelona's group alongside Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Slavia Prague.

Liverpool's title defense starts with a group that again includes Napoli, which Juergen Klopp's side had to beat last December to advance to the knockout stage.

Tottenham have drawn Bayern Munich, Red Star Belgrade and Olympiacos in Group 2 of the Champions League. Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo will face a familiar foe in Atletico Madrid while also being joined by Bayer Leverkusen and Lokomotiv Moscow.

However, they could still face Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid in the group.

After last season's VAR heartbreak against Spurs in the quarter-finals, City will be targeting another run to the latter stages of the competition in this, the ninth successive year in Europe's premier tournament.

"It is a flawless draw for us, against Liverpool, the reigning champions, and Napoli, who play lovely football", the Norway worldwide added.

That defeat put pressure on PSG coach Tuchel, who also saw his side fail to defend either their Coupe de la Ligue or Coupe de France titles in his first season in charge at the Parc des Princes. "It's credit to everyone who has helped me", said Van Dijk.

"It's been a long road and it's part of my journey".

Beaten in Naples a year ago, Liverpool will head back to the San Paolo in their first match on September 17.

"We knew that we were going to come up against some big teams, it's the Champions League, and to go far, you have to play great sides".

"I wasn't 18 and went straight to the top".
