Champions League draw: Chelsea face Atletico, Man Utd get Benfica & Tottenham in group of death

Chelsea take on Atletico Madrid and Roma, Manchester United avoided any tough ties and Tottenham are in a group of death in this season’s Champions League group stages, with the draw now over at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.

Delegations from Europe’s biggest clubs descended on the French principality to learn their fate in this year’s tournament, with several groups of death pulled out of the pots, Metro UK reports.

The Premier League’s top seeded clubs have largely avoided the biggest teams, but Tottenham have landed in a very difficult group that features Champions League holders Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
