So the draw has been made and it is an interesting read. With past European player of the years, Luis Figo, Sir Bobby Charlton, Ruud Gullit and Lothar Matthäus.

Group A

Bayern Munich; Villarreal; Manchester City; Napoli

Group B

Inter Milan; CSKA Moscow; Lille; Trabzonspor

Group C

Manchester Utd; Benfica; FC Basel; Otelul Galati

Group D

Real Madrid; Lyon; Ajax; Dinamo Zagreb

Group E

Chelsea; Valencia; Bayer Leverkusen; Genk

Group F

Arsenal; Ol. Marseille; Olympiacos; Borussia Dortmund

Group G

FC Porto; Shakhtar Donetsk; Zenit St. Petersburg; Apoel Nicosia

Group H

Barcelona; AC Milan; Bate Borisov; Viktoria Plzen

For me the two most difficult groups involve English teams and they are Group A with Manchester City facing tough competition against Villarreal, Napoli and Bayern, and Group F for Arsenal facing Marseille, Borussia Dortmund and Olympiacos.

Manchester United have the easiest group and should qualify with ease, where as Chelsea in Group E will face a tough ask facing Bayer Leverkusen and Valencia, and with Juan Mata only just signing for Chelsea from Valencia it adds some spice to the mix in those two games.

I can’t wait for the Champions League to kick off and eagerly wait to watch as many games possible and also try and get to some live matches!


One thought on “Champions League Draw Arsenal and City Face Tough Test, United Get Easy Group, Chelsea Face Valencia, While Barcelona and Milan are Drawn Together
