2019-20 UEFA Champions League Group Stage Pairings: Toughest and Easiest Paths

Posted By Chops on August 29, 2019

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.

Toughest Group

With Barcelona, BVB, and Inter Milan in Group F, that’s an easy choice.

Easiest Group

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.
