European Champions, Real Madrid, will kick off their title defence against RB Leipzig, Shakhtar Donetsk and Celtic in group F.
Carlos Ancelotti and his men found this out during Thursday’s Uefa Champions League group stage draw at Istanbul.
As exciting as it will be to watch Madrid come up against these clubs, the fixture everyone is truly hyped up for is the Group C( Group of death) encounter between Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
This clash promises to be as exciting as possible, mostly because Polish talisman, Robert Lewandowski, who now plays for Barcelona will be up against his former team, Bayern Munich.
The last time these times met, Lewandowski was on the side that trashed Barca 8-2, will he aid the Spanish side get revenge or will he get a dose of the medicine he once served? And oh, Inter Milan is also in group C!
Apart from Lewy, another player that will be up against his former side is Manchester City’s summer signing, Erling Haaland, who will square up to, Borussia Dortmund, where he plied his trade, excellently, before City, came knocking.
In group H, Argentine playmaker, Angel Did Maria, who now plays for Juventus, will take on his former team, PSG, in what is expected to also be a proper showdown between the two heavy weights.
The champions league will run from September 2022 to June 2023.
