This new season will be a season of clashes as UEFA releases the 20/21 Champions League Draw on Thursday in Geneva. There will be a face-off between Christiano Ronaldo of Juventus and Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona.
These two have shared the 11 out of the last 12 Ballon d’Or awards. Furthermore, this will be the first time these two would play since the move of Ronaldo to Juventus from Real Madrid. There is a historic rivalry between these two in La Liga. However, this is set to continue as the competition will start next month. In addition to Barcelona and Juventus in Group G are Dynamo Kyiv and Ferencvaros.
Another clash is bound to happen between Manchester United and PSG last year’s Champions League finalists. However, Group H wherein Manchester United falls in also has RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir. Moreover, this season will mark the return of Manchester United to the Champions League.
In Group A, the reigning champions Bayern Munich is grouped with Atletico Madrid, Lokomotiv Moskva, and Salzburg. Last year’s win for Bayern Munich was the sixth time of being a Champion.
