Paris - Pep Guardiola's Manchester City got a relatively easy tie as the Champions League Group phase playoffs were drawn in Nyon on Friday as they landed Bulgarians Steaua Bucharest.

The other British side in the draw Scotland's 1967 European Champions Celtic play Hapoel Beer-Sheva of Israel in their desert stadium, while Ireland's Dundalk take on Polish Champions Legia Warsaw.

The plum ties cast 2004 Champions League winners Porto against Italy's Roma while Spain's fourth placed side last season Villarreal take on French third placed side Monaco.

Two time UEFA Cup winners the German outfit Borussia Monchengladbach take on Young Boys of Berne while Salzburg drew Croats Dinamo Zagreb.

Ajax face Russian club Rostov, Copenhagen take on APOEL Nicosia of Cyprus and Bulgaria's Ludogorets take on Viktoria Plzen of the Czech Republic.

The playoffs are contested over two legs on August 16/17 and August 23/24 with the winners going into the lucrative Champions League groups phase.
