Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan were handed a group of death in the Champions League, that will see Robert Lewandowski face his former club soon after leaving.

The draw took place in Istanbul on Thursday afternoon, with the final set to take place in Turkey next June, after the city was initially supposed to host in 2020 and 2021.

Real Madrid won last season’s competition, having been second favourites against PSG, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool on the way to winning the title of European champions for the 14th time.

Those teams will all be amongst the favourites again this year, with PSG and City hoping to finally win their first European titles, with Bayern Munich will be another expected to compete.

And Bayern were given the toughest of the draws for the seeded teams, as they will be heading to the Nou Camp and San Siro to take on two of Europe’s most prestigious teams.
