Man City get Another Tough Champions League Draw (See List)

Manchester City, cursed with bad luck in the Champions League, suffered another horror draw in Monaco but there was better news for Manchester United, who have a relatively easy passage to the knock-out stages.

City have to face last season's runners-up Juventus as well as Spanish club Sevilla, who won the Europa League in May, and tough German competitors Borussia Monchengladbach in Group D.

In contrast United, who came through the qualifying stage by beating Club Bruges, face PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and Wolfsburg in Group B.

Arsenal also have a problematic group, facing Bayern Munich who have beaten them twice in the last three seasons of European football.

They are also in the same Group F as Olympiacos, the Greek club who are mired in serious match-fixing allegations which UEFA have ignored as far as their participation in Europe’s elite club competition is concerned.
