The UEFA Champions League draw for the 2021/22 season was concluded earlier today and the groups have been revealed for Europe’s premier competition for this season.

While the likes of Manchester City, Barcelona, and Liverpool have been handed a tough set of fixtures in the group stages, the likes of Manchester United have managed to secure favourable draws for themselves.

Manchester City will be taking on the likes of RB Leipzig, and Paris Saint-Germain in the group stages.

With the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo linked with a move to the Premier League side, it could be possible that Messi and Ronaldo might just face off in the group stages.

Meanwhile, Barcelona will take on Bayern Munich in their group and the Spanish giants will have a massive challenge ahead of them.

The Catalan outfit have been severely weakened after the departure of Lionel Messi, whereas Bayern Munich are in exceptional form with the likes of Robert Lewandowski an impressive goalscoring touch.

Manchester United have been handed a relatively easy group with the likes of Atalanta, Villarreal and Young Boys.

On the other hand, Liverpool have a tricky group stage ahead of them and they will be facing off against the likes of Atletico Madrid, AC Milan and Porto.
