Liverpool and Spurs could each be grouped with two European giants when tomorrow's Champions League group stage draw is made.

Jurgen Klopp's men booked their place in the lucrative 32-team phase of the European Cup after blitzing Hoffenheim 4-2 at Anfield, and have been placed in pot three for the draw as a result, alongside Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs side.

Chelsea are in pot one with other league champions, while Man United and Man City are both in pot two.

Teams from the same county cannot be draw in the same group as each other, but Liverpool or Spurs could still end up with Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in their group if they are particularly unlucky.

The draw takes place at 5pm tomorrow.

Seeded: Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Benfica, Chelsea, Shakhtar Donetsk, Monaco, Spartak Moscow

Pot 2: Barcelona, Atletico, Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, Man City, FC Porto, Man United

Pot 3: Napoli, Tottenham, FC Basel, Olympiakos, Anderlecht, Liverpool, Roma, Besiktas

Pot 4: Celtic, CSKA Moscow, Sporting CP, APOEL Nicosia, Feyenoord, NK Maribor, FK Qarabag, RB Leipzig
