The Champions League Group Stage Draw Has Been Made And It's A Tough Draw For Man City

The draw for this 2015/16 Champions League has taken place and it's bad news for Manchester City.

City have tough looking group consisting of last years finalists Juventus as well as Europa League Champions Sevilla while Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach complete Group D.

Manchester United have returned to the Champions League after failing to qualify last season, and they've secured a trip home for new signing Memphis Depay as they've drawn his former club PSV Eindhoven. They're joined by CSKA Moscow and got the hardest draw from Pot 4 as Wolfsburg join them in in Group B.

All three of the English teams in Pot 2 managed to avoid Barcelona but Arsenal have been drawn against Bayern Munich as well as Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb while Jose Mourinho will return to Porto after Chelsea drew his former club along with Dynamo Kiev and Maccabi Tel Aviv.
