The draw for this year's Champions League takes place on Thursday, August 30 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.

And according to the report by Sky Sports, Real Madrid are monitoring the progress of the former Liverpool star at Manchester City with the aim of luring him to the Bernabeu.

Red Star, the 1991 champions, left it late as they emerged by the skin of their teeth, coming from two goals down to draw 2-2 at RB Salzburg and advance on away goals after a goalless home encounter.

Three things that have gone wrong for Manchester United
This is just the second season in Premier League history that United has lost more than one of its opening three matches. Asked if he knew what his best defence was, Mourinho accepted he was unsure.

Degenek's Socceroos teammate Trent Sainsbury also had success on Thursday (AEST) as PSV secured their place in the group stage with a 3-0 second leg victory (6-2 agg.) over BATE Borisov.

Other than these, every team knows which pot group they are in.

By virtue of being in the same domestic league, Liverpool can not draw Premier League rivals Manchester United or Spurs, arguably the best two teams in Pot 2, but there are still several hard sides - Portuguese duo Porto and Benfica are perhaps the easiest. Borussia Dortmund were placed in the group of death alongside Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur past year, and they finished third in their group after only managing to get two points. Viktoria Plzen, Club Brugge, Galatasaray, Inter Milan, Hoffenheim, Young Boys, AEK Athens and Red Star Belgrade make up pot four. One team from each pot will be placed in each group. The Dutch side have some talented players but haven't been at their best since the departure of Peter Bosz.

Hurricane Lane gets closer to Hawaii
Hawaii County firefighters, who were in touch with the home's owner, chose to evacuate the group before the water rose further. FLORIDO: Kim says he's anxious about the island's large homeless population and its non-English-speaking immigrants.

Premier League sides Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool are set to discover their Champions League group stage opponents.

Liverpool are a third seed, and a nasty surprise for teams hoping to avoid them.

Liverpool's fate in the draw will be largely determined by the result of the play-off encounter between PAOK and Benfica on Wednesday.
