This Thursday the UEFA Champions League groups were drawn. The draw was held in the city of Istanbul, Turkey, which will host the final of this competition. The distribution of the teams was done deliberately, so that no team will play in the first round against a team from the same federation.
As is often the case, some teams were left with easier groups than others. For example, the famous "group of death" made up of Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Inter Milan, and Plzen is already trending on social media. On the other hand, Real Madrid, the current champion, will have a much easier path, facing teams like Leipzig, Shakhtar, and Celtic.
One group we can't take our eyes off of will be Group H, made up of PSG, Juventus, Benfica, and M Haifa. It will be very exciting to see how Messi, Neymar, and Mbappé take on Juan Guillermo Cuadrado's Juventus.
On the other hand, Erling Haaland's Manchester City will have to face Sevilla, his former team Borussia Dortmund and Copenhagen.
The group stage will start the first week of September and the final will be on June 10, 2023, in Turkey.
Next, we leave you the dates of the next matches of the group stage:
First day: September 6/7
Second day: September 13/14
Third day: October 4/5
Fourth day: October 11/12
Fifth day: October 25/26
Sixth day: November 1/2
