BIg-SPEnd­Ing Manch­ester City face a glam­orous clash with Ital­ian giants Ju­ven­tus in the Europa League group stage.

Roberto Mancini’s side, who booked their place in the group phase with a 3-0 ag­gre­gate win over Ro­ma­nian side Timisoara last night, can now look for­ward to tak­ing on Juve, twice Euro­pean cham­pi­ons and three times vic­tors in this com­pe­ti­tion in its for­mer guise as the Uefa Cup.

The Blues will also face Aus­trian cham­pi­ons Salzburg and Pol­ish cham­pi­ons Lech Poz­nan in group A.

Five-times Euro­pean cham­pi­ons Liver­pool have been drawn against 1986 Euro­pean cham­pi­ons Steaua Bucharest in group K, along with 1989 UEFA Cup win­ners napoli and FC Utrecht, who knocked out Celtic in the play­offs on Thurs­day night.
