Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan were handed a group of death in the Champions League following the draw that took place in Istanbul yesterday and one of them will miss out in Group C.

The three clubs have been crowned champions of Europe 14 times between them.

The final set is to take place in Turkey next June, after the city was initially supposed to host in 2020 and 2021.

As well as record 14-time winners Real Madrid, Celtic also face RB Leipzig and Ukraine’s Shakhtar Donetsk, who are playing their home games in Warsaw, Poland, because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, in Group F.

Tottenham will be confident of making progress after being drawn in the same group as Eintracht Frankfurt, last season’s Europa League winners, Sporting Lisbon and Marseille.

Although two-time winners Chelsea face two tough games against AC Milan, Thomas Tuchel’s side will hope to advance to the knockout stage in Group E, which is also made up of RB Salzburg and Dinamo Zagreb.

Sevilla and FC Copenhagen also await Manchester City in Group G, while there are two heavyweight games between Paris St-Germain and Juventus in Group E.

Group A: Ajax, Liverpool, Napoli, Rangers

Group B: Porto, Atletico Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen, Club Brugge

Group C: Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Viktoria Plzen

Group D: Eintracht Frankfurt, Tottenham Hotspur, Sporting, Marseille

Group E: AC Milan, Chelsea, Red Bull Salzburg, Dinamo Zagreb

Group F: Real Madrid, RB Leipzig, Shakhtar Donetsk, Celtic
