The UCL Draw 2019/20 Is Out: Who Is In The Group Of Death?

Another season; another year of more European nights. The UEFA Champions League Draw held on 29 August, seeded the best sides Europe have to offer.

As luck would have it, most of the English sides will be expecting an easy ride in the group stage, but as we all know, nothing is easy in European football, especially if the recent years is anything to go by…. Remind Barcelona about AS Roma.

So who meets whom in the group stages? Here’s the breakdown…

 

Group Of Deaths This Time Around?

This season’s group of death will be difficult to ascertain since a couple of groups potentially ARE groups of death by their own right.

Group A: Club Brugge & Galatasaray will be no pushovers for the likes of PSG and Real Madrid, who are in their rebuilding phase, so haven’t acquired their mojo just yet.

Group D: Some points will definitely be dropped where Juventus, Atletico Madrid & Bayern Leverkusen are involved. Expect head-to-head & total goals scored/ conceded to play a role in deciding who progresses to knockout stage in February 2020.

Group F: Inter have been rebuilding this summer and as such, on paper they could give Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund a run for their money, especially at the San Siro.

Group G: Zenit, Benfica or Lyon could potentially top the group come Christmas. Take your pick…

Group H: Maybe this one can be classified a strong contender for the ‘Group of Death’. Any of these four clubs can fall short of qualifying for the Round of 16.

Conclusion:

When all is said and done, it will definitely be an exciting season yet again with everyone dreaming for their chance to lift the famous ‘Big-eared’ trophy come the final! Who will it be?
