The toughest group looks to be that of Real Madrid, Manchester City, Ajax and Borussia Dortmund. A group which contains four domestic champions from last season.
Madrid are still expected to progress priced at 7/2 to win the tournament but the draw has seen Manchester City pushed out to 9/1 by Paddy Power, a price that could prove very attractive for punters who believe Roberto Mancini's side can claim thier first Champions League title.
Paris Saint-Germain have also been snipped from 16/1 into 14/1 while beaten finalists Bayern Munich are unmoved at 12/1 following their draw against Valencia, Lille and BATE Borisov.
The three debutant teams remain at huge prices to claim a Champions League victory at the first time of asking.
After being forced to sell key players Santi Cazorla and Solomon Rondon this summer, Malaga are priced at 66/1 after the draw.
Montpellier are 125/1 shots and Danish side FC Nordsjaelland are still given almost no chance by the bookmakers, priced as they are at 1000/1.
They will line up against defending European champions Chelsea, Shakhtar Donetsk and Serie A winners Juventus.
