Chelsea have known their fate in the UEFA Champions League, after today’s round of draws.

While we’d say there are no more easy teams in football these days, Frank Lampard and his team will be happy that the Blues have dodged the so-called European elites.

Chelsea have been drawn in Group E, the same group as Sevilla, Krasnodar and Rennes. The Blues were presented with a much easier group than last season, and Frank Lampard should be aiming a first place finish this time.

See the draws in full

GROUP A Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Salzburg, Lokomotiv Moscow

GROUP B Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter Milan, Borussia Monchengladbach

GROUP C Porto, Manchester City, Olympiacos, Marseille

GROUP D Liverpool, Ajax, Atalanta, FC Midtjylland

GROUP E Sevilla, Chelsea, Krasnodar, Rennes

GROUP F Zenit, Borussia Dortmund, Lazio, Club Brugge

GROUP G Juventus, Barcelona, Dynamo Kyiv, Ferencvarosi TC

GROUP H Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, RB Leipzig, Istanbul Basaksehir

The group stage games will kick off on October 20 and will end around 8/9 December.

The knockout rounds will begin from February 16, with the final date billed for May 29 at Istanbul.
