The play-off round of the Champions League has been completed and we now have 32 teams confirmed, who will go into the pot for the group stage draw on 25 August, Thursday.

Manchester City became the fourth team to qualify for the group stages of the 2016/17 Champions League. Pep Guardiola's side sealed a berth following their 6-0 victory over Romania's Steaua Bucharest.

They will join Premier League winners Leicester City, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal and the Gunners' arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur in this campaign of Europe's elite club competition. Manchester United will feature in the Europa League, while Chelsea and Liverpool have missed out on this season's European football.

Leicester will be seeded in Pot 1, along with the Champions League winners Real Madrid, La Liga champions Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Benfica and CSKA Moscow.
