Fingers crossed United’s season isn’t about to go from bad to worse.

It’s that time of year again, folks. Manchester United will find out their Champions League group stage opponents on Thursday, when the draw takes place at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. With José Mourinho’s men currently going through some poor form, they’ll be hoping to avoid anything too tricky.

United will be in pot two of the draw: remember each group contains one team from each pot, and teams from the same country can’t be drawn together. That means the worst-case scenario would be something like a group containing Real Madrid, Monaco and Inter Milan; the best may resemble Lokomotiv Moscow, PSV Eindhoven and Red Star Belgrade. Who do you fancy? Let us know in the comments below.
