That just about wraps up our live coverage of the 2017-18 Champions League group stage draw, thanks for following along.

We will be back tomorrow afternoon to bring you the Europa League draw, which begins at 13.00 BST. Arsenal will be in unfamiliar territory there and should be joined by Everton, should the Toffees get through their play-off round second-leg decider away to Hajduk Split tonight.

You can join my IBTimes UK colleague Tony Mogan for updates from that potentially tricky fixture in Croatia.

Goodbye.

Ronaldo wins the Uefa men's player of the year award, while Barcelona's Dutch forward Lieke Martens, 2017 Women's Championship winner and Golden Ball recipient, takes the women's honour.

Juventus and Barcelona should progress safely from Group D. Group G isn't much of a crowd-pleaser, but debutants RB Leipzig will no doubt be thrilled with their lot given what could have transpired from their lowly position in pot four.

26 day 18:02

A very pleasant draw indeed for Manchester United and Liverpool, who will surely fancy their chances of winning their respective groups. The Reds will have the opportunity to avenge their 2015-16 Europa League final defeat to Sevilla in Basel.

Serie A title contenders Napoli pose a potential threat to Manchester City, but otherwise Group F also looks relatively straightforward.

Tottenham will be really up against it in Group H and will likely go toe-to-toe with Dortmund for a runner-up spot behind Real Madrid. Chelsea will not be thankful for a 2,500-mile trip to Azerbaijan being added to tough contests against Atletico and Roma.

Celtic, meanwhile, will be relishing another couple of atmospheric European nights in Glasgow against two giants in Bayern and PSG.
