Seven-time European title holders AC Milan, knocked out of the Champions League by Barcelona in the last two seasons, were drawn with the Catalans in the group stage of this season’s competition on Friday.

Nine-time champions Real Madrid will meet Juventus in two mouthwatering clashes in Group B which also features Galatasaray and FC Copenhagen.

Holders Bayern Munich landed CSKA Moscow, Manchester City and Czech champions Viktoria Plzen in Group D, giving them a seemingly straightforward passage to the knockout stage.

Chelsea, champions two seasons ago, face Schalke 04, FC Basle and Steaua Bucharest in Group E, having beaten the latter pair on their way to winning the Europa League last season.

Three-time European Cup winners Manchester United meet Ukraine’s Brazilian-inspired champions Shakhtar Donetsk along with Bayer Leverkusen and Real Sociedad in Group A.

AC Milan and Barcelona have met six times in the last two seasons and the Catalans have come out on top.

The Serie A side lost 4-2 on aggregate in the round of 16 last year and 3-1 on aggregate in the quarterfinals two seasons ago, when the two sides also met in the group stage.

The pair were drawn in Group H, alongside four-time winners Ajax Amsterdam and 1967 champions Celtic, who faced Barcelona in the group stage last season and memorably beat them at home.

“It is a well-known group, with prestigious stadia, historical ones, with teams who have already won the Champions League,” AC Milan vice-president Umberto Gandini told reporters.

Antonio Conte, who played under Carlo Ancelotti at Juventus for two years and now coaches the Serie A champions, will face his former manager when his side play Real Madrid.

TOUGH GROUP

“It’s a tough group with fascinating matches. Real are among the favourites for the title and… Galatasaray are a team to be feared,” Conte told Italian television.

“Unlike last season, we know what awaits us and the difficulty we will meet when we face the best teams in the world.”

Real beat Galatasaray in the knockout stage last season.

Bayern are clear favourites to progress from their group but the treble winners are taking nothing for granted.

“We have to go into the competition with a lot of respect and a lot of focus from the very start,” said Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

“We have to be especially careful not to underestimate CSKA Moscow and Manchester City. This will not be an automatic qualification but our aim is to make the knockout stage.”

Group F was arguably the toughest, pitting last year’s runners-up Borussia Dortmund against Napoli, Olympique Marseille and Arsenal.

“This is a brilliant, balanced group with four teams who have what it takes to survive the group stage,” said Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp.

“The fact is we have to get something to put right (past results) against Arsenal and we have something to put right against Marseille,” added Klopp, whose side finished bottom of a group featuring both teams two seasons ago.

“I have not been to Napoli but I am already looking forward to the atmosphere there.”

Austria Vienna, the only debutants in the draw, were placed in Group G along with former Champions League winners Porto as well as Atletico Madrid and Zenit St Petersburg.

Big-spending Paris St Germain drew Olympiakos Piraeus, from austerity-hit Greece, and Anderlecht in Group C in what should be a fairly easy stroll for the French side.

THE DRAW

Group A: Manchester United, Shakthar, Leverkusen, Real Sociedad
Group B: Real Madrid, Juventus, Galatasaray, FC Copenhagen
Group C: Benfica, PSG, Olympiacos, Anderlecht
Group D: Bayern Munich, CSKA Moscow, Man City, Viktoria Plzen
Group E: Chelsea, Schalke, FC Basel, Steaua Bucuresti
Group F: Arsenal, Marseille, Dortmund, Napoli
Group G: FC Porto, Atletico Madrid, Zenit, Austria Vienna
Group H: Barcelona, AC Milan, Ajax, Celtic

Many football fans awaited the resumption of the English Premier League. To make more money, it’s worth paying attention to any betting online – 1xBet.com provides a lot of interesting offers with good conditions for each bettor.

Before the start of the Premier League season, virtually no one doubted that Liverpool would fight for the champion title. The Merseysides have not taken gold medals for a long time, and with the current lineup and even more so under the leadership of Jurgen Klopp, it has finally become much easier for them to do it.

However, no one expected Liverpool to get such an advantage over the second place of the standings. For the first time for the whole campaign, the team lost only in the 28th round, and this is a very good indicator. But Jurgen Klopp admitted that he didn’t plan to fail in the Premier League until the end of his contract (until 2024). Of course, the coach was joking, but the Merseysiders did not show such a powerful game for a long time. Every fan of Liverpool can bet now on FIFA eSports battle Champions League – 1xBet.com offers good tournaments to make predictions for any teams that have even left the best European competitions.

In addition to the success of the Merseysides, there are enough other unresolved issues in the Premier League:

  1. Will Chelsea be able to defend the fourth position? Manchester United imposed serious competition on the Aristocrats, being only a few points behind.
  2. What are Everton’s prospects? To earn more, 1xBet offers any betting online opportunities to its customers under the best conditions. Considering the not-so-good results of Everton this season, it’s worth more carefully analyzing the bets on the Toffees, which, it seems, will finish the championship without specific tasks.
  3. Who will leave the Premier League? The contenders for relegation are Norwich and Aston Villa, however, Bournemouth’s position is also questionable, as well as Watford’s and West Ham’s.

In general, there are still many interesting events in the English Premier League to expect, and it is very good that the championship has finally returned after the break.
