Champions League Group Stage: Barcelona To Play Inter, Chelsea Meet Porto, Madrid Face Milan


Here is the draw in its entirety, with some mouthwatering clashes in prospect…

Today the draw for the Champions League group stages  took place at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. Goal.com’s LIVE coverage of the event saw a host of intruiging matches drawn from the hat.

The pick of the ties sees Barcelona face Inter in Group F, where Samuel Eto’o and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are set for immediate returns to their former clubs. 

Elsewhere, Manchester United face some long away trips while AC Milan and Real Madrid will tangle in a glamour tie in Group A. 

Arsenal may feel that they have a clear path to the next stage as they meet AZ, Olympiacos, and Standard, although it’s worth nothing that Olympiacos were top seeds in Pot 3 and Standard a close second in Pot 4.
