PSG and Man City to meet in Champions League group stage

After coming out together in Thursday’s draw, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City, two of the favorites to win the Champions League, will meet each other in the group stage of this season’s championship.
Last season, Pep Guardiola’s City defeated PSG in the Champions League semi-finals before falling in the final to Chelsea in Porto.

After that disappointment, Qatar-owned Paris signed Lionel Messi, and there’s a chance that the Argentine would face his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo in the two clubs’ encounters.

“The challenge is to try to finish first in the group.”

The clubs are in Group A along with RB Leipzig and Belgian champions Club Brugge.

Leipzig were already in a group with PSG last season, the two sides qualifying for the last 16 ahead of Manchester United.

The Germans, who also lost to PSG in the 2020 semi-finals, lost coach Julian Nagelsmann to Bayern Munich in the summer and replaced him with the American Jesse Marsch.
