UCL: Newcastle Draws PSG, Dortmund, Milan In Tough Group
Newcastle United will kick off its UEFA Champions League campaign in what is arguably the group of death alongside PSG, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund in Group F following the draws on Thursday.
PSG, AC Milan and Dortmund have crossed paths on multiple occasions in Europe’s elite competition, but it is a tough welcome back to the Champions League for Newcastle, who will be playing in the tournament for the first time in 20 years.
As for Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, who are playing in their first Champions League group-stage campaign in seven years, the Gunners were drawn with Europa League winners Sevilla, Dutch club PSV Eindhoven and French RC Lens of France.
Manchester City were handed a favourable draw as they were paired with RB Leipzig for the third Champions League campaign in a row, as well as Red Star Belgrade and Swiss club Young Boys.
Celtic were given Atletico Madrid in their group, along with Lazio and Dutch champions Feyenoord.
