Jose Mourinho will take his Chelsea team to Porto, the place where he won his first major European title. Chelsea has also drawn Dynamo Kiev and Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

The returning Manchester United will face PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and Wolfsburg.

Defending champions Barcelona should be able to navigate a group containing Bayer Leverkusen, Roma and BATE Borisov.
