UEFA Champions League draw results: Tough draw for Arsenal

Harold Cunningham

Arsenal get the Group of Death, while there are clashes between Bayern Munich and Manchester City and Real Madrid and Juventus to look forward to elsewhere.

After several minutes of utter nonsense, UEFA have deigned to provide us with the groups for this year's edition of the Champions League. Without further ado:

Group A: Manchester United, Shakhtar Donetsk, Bayer Leverkusen, Real Sociedad

Group B: Real Madrid, Juventus, Galatasaray, Copenhagen

Group C: Benfica, PSG, Olympiakos, Anderlecht

Group D: Bayern Munich, CSKA Moscow, Manchester City, Viktoria Plzen

Group E: Chelsea, Schalke 04, FC Basel, Steaua Bucharest

Group F: Arsenal, Marseille, Borussia Dortmund, Napoli

Group G: Porto, Atletico Madrid, Zenit St. Petersburg, Austria Vienna

Group H: Barcelona, AC Milan, Ajax, Celtic

Arsenal have managed to work their way into a Group of Death (TM), drawing both Borussia Dortmund and Napoli out of the late pots, while fellow London club Chelsea get the Group of Cupcakes, avoiding anyone particularly strong after being booted from the group stages last year. Group B, featuring Real Madrid and Juventus, should be fun (although we'd expect both teams to advance), and Group H has about 50 combined European Cups in Barcelona, Milan, Ajax and Celtic.

I'd have more to say but quite a lot of my soul died during this draw. Apologies.
