Manchester United, last year's losing finalists, were drawn against CSKA Moscow, Besiktas and Wolfsburg in Thursday's Champions League group stages draw in Monaco.

The Premier League champions were placed in Group B and will be happy to have avoided Real Madrid, and former United star Cristiano Ronaldo, who were among the second seeds.

The first round of matches will be played on September 15 and 16.
