The 2019-20 UEFA Champions League Group Stage draw is all set. Club reps and players arrived in Monaco today for the draw and player awards.
Will Liverpool make it three finals in a row? Can Manchester City avoid bottling in the quarters again (we all know they’ll miraculously get the easiest draw through though)? Do Real Madrid and Bayern Munich re-establish their European dominance?
It all starts today.
Here are the pairings. Check back soon for our thoughts on the toughest and easiest groups. Expect a podcast on it all later today as well.
2019-20 UEFA Champions League Group Stage Draw
|Group||Pot 1||Pot 2||Pot 3||Pot 4|
|Group A||PSG||Real Madrid||Club Brugge||Galatasaray|
|Group B||Bayern Munich||Tottenham||Olympiacos||Red Star Belgrade|
|Group C||Manchester City||Shakhtar Donetsk||Dinamo||Atalanta|
|Group D||Juventus||Atletico Madrid||Bayer Leverkusen||Lokomotiv Moscow|
|Group E||Liverpool||Napoli||Red Bull Salzburg||Genk|
|Group F||Barcelona||Borussia Dortmund||Inter Milan||Slavia Prague|
|Group G||Zenit||Benfica||Lyon||RB Leipzig|
With Barcelona, BVB, and Inter Milan in Group F, that’s an easy choice.
I mean, FFS with City already. How do they always manage to get a cake walk? Oh, wait…
The “These games are only available on B/R Live for $2.99 group”
That’d be Group G.
The “If a group falls in the woods and nobody hears it, does it make a sound?”
That’s also Group G.
The “Wait this is an evenly matched secretly fun group”
That is Group H.
