Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be happy with the draw for the UEFA Champions League group stages, according to chief executive David Gill.
Last season's defeated finalists were drawn with Benfica, Basel and Romanian newcomers Otelul Galati in Group C.
United beat Benfica to win their first European Cup in 1968 - a match in which former player Sir Bobby Charlton played - and he paired the two together again during the draw in Monaco.
Gill said: "We have had great matches against them and he (Charlton) was reminiscing before the draw about that great match back in 1968.
"We had some great games against them in 2000 so we are looking forward to going back to Portugal."
Gill told Sky Sports News: "We've had great success in the last few years in the competition and we're looking forward to it.
"I'm sure he's (Ferguson's) happy with that. We have a new Romanian team, congratulations to them for getting in the competition. We are looking forward to going there."
