It has been a quick turnaround for Uefa given last season’s final happened just over a month ago, with Bayern Munich beating PSG in Lisbon after the finals were shifted into a mini-tournament in Portugal following the coronavirus pandemic.
The competition gets under way a month later than usual with first group fixtures scheduled for October 20.
A quick look at the groups and on the whole, it’s a good draw for the English teams.
Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea will all be favourites to finish top of their respective groups after avoiding the big guns from Pot 1.
But for Manchester United, it could be a tough task to get through to the last-16. PSG and RB Leipzig both reached the last four of last season’s competition and will be dangerous again in 2020/21.
