English teams certainly had mixed fortunes with Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool all handed relatively easy draws, especially Jurgen Klopp’s team who will be extremely happy.
Chelsea’s draw looks a bit more difficult and Spurs will be wondering what they did in a past life to deserve defending champions Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, who beat them in the Europa League a couple of years ago:
GROUP A: Benfica, Manchester United, Basle, CSKA Moscow
GROUP B: Bayern Munich, PSG, Anderlecht, Celtic
GROUP C: Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, AS Roma, Qarabag
GROUP D: Juventus, Barcelona, Olympiakos, Sporting Lisbon
GROUP E: Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, Liverpool, Maribor
GROUP F: Shakhtar Donetsk, Manchester City, Napoli, Feyenoord
GROUP G: Monaco, Porto, Besiktas, RB Leipzig
GROUP H: Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Spurs, APOEL
There are some extremely intriguing ties in this year’s group stage with Bayern vs PSG, Chelsea vs Atleti, Juventus vs Barcelona and Real vs Dortmund the pick of the draw.
Can Real Madrid make it three years in a row?
