Champions League group stage draw 2018

May JohnsonSep 03, 2018

Croatian worldwide and Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric, has been named the best European player by the continent's football governing body, UEFA.

Ronaldo, a United player from 2003 to 2009, scored when they beat Chelsea on penalties in the 2008 final after a 1-1 draw and has faced them twice in the competition since with Real Madrid.

"We're in the Champions League to play the best teams and Barcelona are definitely one of them", he said.

The English Premier League team are the only ones of the four who are not former European champions.

Cristiano Ronaldo won a Champions League title with Manchester United and will return to Old Trafford in the 2018-19 group stage with his new club Juventus.

"Having played against Real Madrid last season, there is some symmetry to it, playing Barca this time around".

Three-time defending champion Real Madrid will start their quest for a record-extending 14th European title in Group G with Roma, CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen.

Ronaldo, who joined Juventus in the off-season, was the only nominee to skip the annual awards ceremony held during the Champions League draw in Monaco.

Nevertheless, Russian President Vladimir Putin remains ready to resolve the problems facing the two countries, he said. Because of the sanctions, foreign direct investment in Russian Federation fell in 2013 by more than 5%.

"Apart from Barcelona, Inter might suffer against Tottenham".

"Man Utd should get through with Juventus, but as it stands right now we don't know how long Jose is going to be there if these results don't pick up".

Modric has also been linked with a move away from Real this summer, with Inter Milan said to be keen on him, but he claims to be more than happy in the Spanish capital.

The 33-year-old Ronaldo will reportedly miss a friendly against World Cup runners-up Croatia on September 6 and a Nations League game on September 10 against Italy.

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

"Our main goal is Euro 2020, so Portugal and UEFA Nation's League is not that important and even to lose against Portugal and Spain is no big deal", he said.

"He is kind of player that only thinks, 'No matter if we lose, the only thing that matters is that I score a goal!'". Red Star Belgrade is also in this group.
