After tomorrow we'll know all 32 clubs that will compete in the group stage. Valencia beat out Monaco to make it a record 5 clubs from one country that will take part in the group stage.

Unless Lazio goes through, Ukraine will have as many teams in the group stage as both Italy and France this year.

It will be interesting to see if Apoel can have another amazing run this year as they did back in 2011-2012 when they made it through the second qualifying round, the third qualifying round, the playoff stage, group stage, round of 16 and finally crashed out in the quarterfinals to Real Madrid.

Yeah, Group D is tough. Sevilla is a hard nut to crack. In my opinion, Juventus isn't a great team.

D,E,F are the toughest groups. Chelsea always has it easy, same goes for United.

I have a question with champions league. I was under the impression that if a player played for a team in a European tournament in a season, they were ineligible to play for any other team in the same tournament. Do qualifying rounds count?

Man U just spent a ton of money on Martial, yet he played in both legs of Monaco's qualifying matchup. So does he not qualify to play for Man U in the Champions League??

Thanks in advance

As Monaco was eliminated, Martial is eligible to play for MU. I am not really sure whether this would be the case if they would have qualified..

Manchester City need to make their mark in Europe at some point and this probably needs to be the season. Yes they've won the Premiere League which is a huge feat (they've also won the useless League Cup and slightly less useless FA Cup). But in order to get to the level of Chelsea, Arsenal, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, etc. they need to make a deep run in the Champions League.

You left Man U out of your notation of teams to which Man City is aspiring to be. Until they progress further in the Champions League, they will always be the noisy neighbor.
