Champions League favourites Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain will face off in Group A of this season's competition in a mouthwatering clash.

The tie sees Pep Guardiola head-to-head with protege Lionel Messi, as the two richest sides in Europe square off - and should City land Cristiano Ronaldo, CR7 goes up against his old foe Messi once more.

Elsewhere, Manchester United are set for a swift reunion with Villarreal, the side who beat the Red Devils in last year's Europa League. United also play Atalanta and Young Boys. Holders Chelsea have a trip to Juventus, while Zenit gives them a chance to visit host final Saint-Petersburg in the group stage.

Liverpool face Atletico Madrid and Porto, who Jurgen Klopp has previous played in knockout ties for the Reds, while a trip to the San Siro against AC Milan completes their draw.

FourFourTwo Staff

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
