UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2020-21: Check out the Group Stage Draws in full

The UEFA Champions League draw for the 2020/21 season was concluded on Thursday in Nyon, Switzerland. Amidst the trophy presentations for different category of players, the officials from the governing body made the draw. Didier Drogba and Florent Malouda were the key ambassadors helping in allocating 32 clubs across 8 groups for the Group Stage.

Group A sees defending champions Bayern go up against Atletico Madrid, who will be the initial favourites to qualify for the knockouts stage. They are accompanied by Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moscow.

Group B is potentially the ‘Group Of Death’ this year because it has teams that rank pretty highly in their respective leagues. This consists of Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Shakthar Donetsk and Borussia Monchengladbach. However based on the reputation and squad depth, one would fancy Real Madrid and Inter Milan to go through.

Group C sees Manchester City start as the favourite while notably taking on 2004 UCL winners Porto, who look strong as well. The group is completed with the presence of Olympique Marseille and Olympiacos. City begin yet another campaign in pursuit of their first Champions’ League title, with a favourable group handed to them.

Onto Group D, which has Liverpool as the leading team. However, the debate will be for the second qualifying spot for the knockouts between Ajax and Atalanta. Both teams have started the season well, but Atalanta hold the edge based on current form.

Group E pits together two giants in recent times, Sevilla and Chelsea which will be an interesting fixture. The other two clubs in the lot are Krasnodar and newcomers Rennes from Ligue 1.

Group F is also an exciting combination in terms of the attacking football that will be on display. This is the dark horse among all groups because any two amongst Zenit, Dortmund, Lazio and Club Brugge can go through.

Group G, and again two giants of the continent clash against each other. Juventus take on Barcelona with both teams under a new managerial regime. But without a shadow of a doubt, the mega talk will see two of the biggest names in football cross paths – Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. They are joined by Dynamo Kyiv and Ferencvaros, who are more or less guaranteed to be knocked out.

And the final group is Group H – which undoubtedly has an appeal of its own. It consists of Manchester United, PSG, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir. Although the fight would be among the first three teams for the two available spots, PSG and Leipzig being last year’s semi-finalists will just edge Manchester United out of knockouts qualification.
