Champions League group of death

There is a ‘group of death’ that is named annually, and this season it looks like Group F will be the recipient.

The winner of this group, which includes Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan, and Newcastle, will proceed to the next round of Europe’s premier competition.

Newcastle’s long-awaited return to European football makes this a challenging test for all the clubs involved, but supporters of the four sides may take comfort in the knowledge that they will get to see some of the best soccer venues in Europe.

 Champions League

Harry Kane will make his first trip back to England after leaving Tottenham Hotspur for Bayern Munich in the summer after being placed in Group A with Manchester United, Copenhagen, and Galatasaray.

Another legendary Champions League matchup will be repeated when Bayern Munich plays Manchester United.

The team’s legendary comeback victory over Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final will remain vivid in the minds of United supporters.

Manchester City, the champion from last year, dodged some of Europe’s strongest teams and will be optimistic about its prospects of moving on from Group G.

Arsenal supporters have been waiting for their club to play in the Champions League and will be happy that the Gunners avoided Group B’s top teams in Europe.

The most successful team in the European Cup, Real Madrid, has been placed in Group C with Napoli, Braga, and Union Berlin as it seeks to add to its record 14 victories in the competition.
