The 2019/20 Champions League season is well underway as UEFA have released group draws, with holders Liverpool, 13-time winners Real Madrid, hopefuls Manchester City, perennial runners-up Juventus, Spanish champions Barcelona among the sides to have learned their fate.
The first matches will start on the17th/18th of September when Madrid and PSG playing Club Brugge and Galatasaray in Group A. The final will be played in Istanbul.
Liverpool are to meet Napoli in the group for the second year in a row but will consider their path to the knockout stages a favorable one, with Red Bull Salzburg and Genk. Manchester City paired with Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk again, as well as Croatia’s Dinamo Zagreb and Champions League debutants Atalanta.
Elsewhere, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain will meet in two heavyweight clashes in Group A, but Galatasaray could threaten to make it tricky for either of them.
This looks like a great draw for Liverpool who are looking to defend their title this year, in Group E. The draw with Salzburg means a return to one of their former clubs for both Naby Keita and Sadio Mane.
Group D also looks quite deadly, with Juventus and Atletico obviously looking to be successful here, in a repeat of last season’s quarter-final in Group D,
Runners-up last year, Tottenham Hotspur will face Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, as well as Greek giants Olympiacos.
Group G is probably the most open group, with Zenit, the Russian champions included in this group. It is an open contest and anything could happen here.
Manchester City is among the favorites for the tournament and have quite an easy run in Group C.
Galatasaray once beat Real Madrid 2-1 in the UEFA Super Cup, can we see a repeat of this again as both teams are named in Group A?
