PSG faces Real Madrid, Bayern meets Arsenal as UCL groups drawn


Fans of Manchester United and Chelsea are smiling wide, while Manchester City fans are once again wondering why the UEFA Champions League draw is so cruel to them.

Manchester City was drawn into what is being widely regarded as the Group of Death, joining Juventus, Sevilla and Fabian Johnson’s Borussia Moenchengladbach in Group D after Thursday’s Champions League draw.

The draw produced several high-profile match-ups, including Paris St. Germain facing Real Madrid and Bayern Munich squaring off against Arsenal.

In terms of draws, Manchester City and Chelsea wound up in two of the easier draws possible, avoiding powerhouses.

There are plenty of storylines in the group draw as well, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic facing off against his first pro club, Malmo, and Jose Mourinho leading Chelsea against FC Porto, the team with which he won his first Champions League title as manager.

Here is a look at the full draw:

GROUP A- Paris St. Germain, Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk, Malmo
GROUP B- PSV Eindhoven, Manchester United, CSKA Moscow, Wolfsburg
GROUP C- Benfica, Atletico Madrid, Galatasaray, Astana
GROUP D- Juventus, Manchester City, Sevilla, Borussia Moenchengladbach
GROUP E- Barcelona, Bayer Leverkusen, Roma, BATE Borisov
GROUP F-  Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Olympiakos, GNK Dinamo
GROUP G- Chelsea, FC Porto, Dynamo Kiev, Maccabi Tel Aviv
GROUP H- FC Zenit, Valencia, Lyon, KAA Gent

  1. best of luck to Fabian Johnson & BMG in that group!

    wish MB was still at Roma or moved to Bayer.. good chance for either to get out the group or at least play some games vs. Barcelona.

      • Yes …yes you have said UMPTEEN times on this board. Making 2-3’x times much money (that is the actual multiple – after taxes) makes one happy and solves everything.

  2. Group A is tough and c but I don’t think D is tough as some people think. mancity, juventus and sevilla, if now interms of players and coach city are far better so city get their size no excuse about that. Manchester United are laughing because they are in easy group, let see what happen next, Barcelona cheap group indeed. But group G is interesting because tough matches for Chelsea but at all cost first in the group. Verdict to this season champions league, Chelsea are the favorite no doubt about that, adding pogba and stones, I think they can conquer Europe,

  3. GROUP A- Paris St. Germain, Real Madrid,
    GROUP B- PSV Eindhoven, Manchester United/ Wolfsburg
    GROUP C- Atletico Madrid, Benfica/Galatasaray
    GROUP D- Juventus, Manchester City/Sevilla
    GROUP E- Barcelona, Bayer Leverkusen/ Roma
    GROUP F- Bayern Munich, Arsenal/Olympiakos
    GROUP G- Chelsea, FC Porto
    GROUP H- FC Zenit, Valencia,

  4. Group D is probably the toughest. Bayern/Arsenal and PSG/RM will be good matchups but in both cases both teams should be able to get through. Also, TSO returning to Porto.
