English Teams In The Champions League

Who will the English teams face?

Arsenal; Group D

Borussia Dortmund
Manager: Jürgen Klopp
Key man: Marco Reus
Last season’s German runners-up face Arsenal for a third time in four group stages. Weakened by loss of Robert Lewandowski.

Galatasaray
Manager: Cesare Prandelli
Key man: Wesley Sneijder
Turkish runners-up went out to Chelsea last season and have lost Didier Drogba. Emmanuel Eboué will be a popular returnee to London.

Anderlecht
Manager: Besnik Hasi
Key man: Aleksandar Mitrovic
Belgians last visited England in 2007, drawing with Spurs. Have gone out at the group stage in the last two seasons.

Chelsea; Group G
Schalke
Manager: Jens Keller
Key man: Julian Draxler
Will not be underestimated and boast good attacking threat from Draxler, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Sporting Lisbon
Manager: Marco Silva
Key man: Fredy Montero
Battling to hold on to William Carvalho amid interest from Arsenal and Manchester United, the Portuguese make their first appearance since 2009-10.

Maribor
Manager: Ante Simundza
Key man: Marcos Tavares
Succeeded where many have failed in eliminating Celtic. Last competed at this stage in 1999-2000, when they achieved just one win.

Liverpool; Group B

Real Madrid
Manager: Carlo Ancelotti
Key man: Cristiano Ronaldo
The holders return to Anfield still smarting from a 4-0 loss five years ago. Gareth Bale will be keenly watched.

Basel
Manager: Paulo Sousa
Key man: Marco Streller
Swiss champions will need no introduction, having faced Chelsea and Spurs recently. Former Red Philipp Degen provides the Anfield link.

Ludogorets
Manager: Aleksandar Aleksandrov
Key man: Cosmin Moti
Bulgarian minnows provided a fairy tale as defender Moti donned the gloves to help beat Steaua Bucharest on penalties.

Manchester City; Group E

Bayern Munich
Manager: Pep Guardiola
Key man: Arjen Robben
Champions in 2013 before being embarrassed by Real Madrid in last season’s semi-finals. Traded away wins with City last season.

CSKA Moscow
Manager: Yevgeni Giner
Key man: Alan Dzagoev
City will not relish travelling to Russia to play another side they took on last season. Yaya Touré was racially abused, a fact that will further crank up this tie.

Roma
Manager: Rudi Garcia
Key man: Francesco Totti
The Italians complete a tough draw for City as Ashley Cole gets his return after leaving Chelsea this summer. Totti and Gervinho are familiar foes.
