Lewy expected to be honoured ahead of CL draw

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is expected to be named UEFA Player of the Year for the 2019/20 season in Geneva ahead of a closed-doors draw for this year's Champions League group stages.

The Polish striker is one of three finalists alongside Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne and Bayern teammate Manuel Neuer.

Lewandowski guided Bayern Munich to their sixth Champions League title, finishing as the competition's top scorer with 15 goals. Overall, he netted 55 goals in 47 games in all competitions as Bayern won the treble.

Bayern's Hansi Flick, Liverpool's Juergen Klopp and RB Leipzig's Julian Nagelsmann are finalists for the Men's Coach of the Year award.

Teams have been drafted in Pots and they will be drawn at random until each group has a team from each Pot. Two teams from the same league will not be allowed in the same group.

Pot 1 has Bayern, Sevilla, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Zenit Saint Petersburg, Porto while Pot 2 features Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, Manchester United, Shakhtar Donetsk, Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea, Ajax.

This means Liverpool could potentially be in a group with Barcelona, Atletico or Dortmund. Inter Milan, who are in Pot 3, may well be the third horse in any group of death scenarios.
