Manchester United take on Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus in Champions League

Champions League draw

"We have to keep working, though", added the 32-year-old, who was announced as the victor of the prize after Thursday's draw in Monaco for this season's Champions League group stage.

Holders Real Madrid will face last season's semi-finalists AS Roma plus CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen in Group G.

"The favourites to win UEFA Champions League are always the same: Real Madrid and Barcelona are ahead of the rest", Ronaldo, the global ambassador for competition sponsors Santander, told Goal .

Pep Guardiola's side will also play Valencia and Young Boys, who return to the group stages this year.

Liverpool, the runner-up last season, was the toughest third-seeded team and landed with Paris Saint-Germain, Napoli, and Red Star Belgrade in Group C. They reached the Champions League after their first domestic title in 2011 and came third in a group that also included Barcelona, AC Milan and BATE Borisov. The Champions League is the most hard European competition and you can see that looking at the group.

"Manchester City are a massive challenge for us", said Hoffenheim coach Julien Nagelsmann.

United begin their Champions League campaign in Switzerland against Young Boys on Wednesday, September 19. Monaco had a great run two years ago so this group could come down to the last match of the group stage.

In the immediate aftermath of demonetisation, a new narrative of a "demonetisation windfall" took place. The share of Rs. 500 notes, in terms of value, increased from 22.5% to 42.9% in the same period.

Atletico Madrid, AS Monaco and Borussia Dortmund were drawn together in an evenly-balanced Group A completed by Club Bruges.

"We showed people last season that we can compete at this level, particularly when you look at the games against Real Madrid, who went on to win the tournament".

Matchday 1: Schalke 04 vs. Porto and Galatasaray vs. Lokomotiv Moskva.

Aside from Ronaldo and Juventus providing a hard challenge, United should face easier rides against Valencia and Young Boys.

UEFA pays 2.7 million euros ($3.2 million) per group-stage win and 900,000 euros ($1.05 million) for a draw.

"On Thursday, he was angry because he won the Champions League and scored 15 goals".
