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 on Thursday 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 play-offs.
Europa League holders Atletico Madrid, who defeated Fulham in the final when the London club were coached by new Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson, will take on Bayer Leverkusen, Norwegian champions Rosenborg and Greek side Aris.
