How the UCL draws was?

Let’s take a closer look at the groups starting with, well, Group A. Defending champions Bayern Munich were drawn with Atlético Madrid, Red Bull Salzburg, and Lokomotiv Moscow. Bayern’s double-header with Atléti is likely to be bruising, with Luis Suárez now lining up alongside Diego Costa.

Salzburg gave Napoli and Liverpool plenty to think about last season, and while they’ve lost Erling Haaland, Zambian forward Patson Daka is one to watch. Lokomotiv were runners-up in Russia last season, with Fyodor Smolov and Grzegorz Krychowiak among their more familiar names.

In Group B, Real Madrid will be the favorites but Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter, and Monchengladbach will all have an eye on second place. Inter haven’t reached the last 16 since 2012; this is a great opportunity after landing even tougher draws in the last two seasons.

Gladbach came fourth in the Bundesliga last season but has made a slow start this term, losing to Dortmund and drawing with Union Berlin so far. Shakhtar is here for the 13th time in 15 seasons but are not the force they once were and may settle for the Europa League.

In Group C, Manchester City starts the rebuild after crashing out against Lyon against Porto, Olympiakos, and Marseille. City has got out of the groups with ease in the last six seasons and will be favourites to top the group ahead of seeded Portuguese champions Porto. André Villas-Boas’s combative Marseille side, led by Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin, should challenge for a last-16 place.

Group D, meanwhile, pits 2019 winners Liverpool with Ajax, Atalanta, and Danish side Midtjylland. Nobody should feel too upset with this draw – except the tactical purists forced to choose between Ajax and free-scoring Atalanta if, as expected, Liverpool top the group. Midtjylland should not be underestimated: run by Brentford’s owners along with similar Moneyball-style principles, they will be out to make an impression.

Frank Lampard should have time to figure out his strongest team as Chelsea take on Sevilla, Krasnodar and Rennes in Group E. Lampard will surely lean on new keeper Edouard Mendy for info on his former club, who have a future star in teenage midfielder Edoardo Camavinga. Sevilla, a persistent thorn in Manchester United’s side, will fancy their chances of reaching the knockouts and taking a break from Europa League domination.

As we mentioned right at the start, there is usually a group where every team will fancy their chances – and this year it’s Group F. Russian champions Zenit will take on Dortmund, Lazio and outsiders Club Brugge. Dortmund is favourites while Lazio, who challenged for the scudetto last season, will be formidable opponents if they can rediscover that form.

Group G will see a landmark occasion – Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo facing off in the Champions League group stages. Barcelona and Juventus are drawn alongside Dynamo Kyiv and Ferencvaros, who overcame Celtic and three other teams to qualify. It’s got a fantastic old-school feel – let’s hope the Eastern European sides can at least be competitive.

And finally, it’s the group of death: Group H. Manchester United go up against last season’s finalists, PSG, in a reprise of their memorable last-16 meeting in 2019. RB Leipzig will be aiming to claim more scalps after upsetting Atlético last season. Istanbul Basaksehir won their first Turkish title last season and are packed with Premier League names: Martin Skrtel, Demba Ba, Nacer Chadli – and this guy.
