2010-11 UEFA Champions League Draw

The draw for the group stage of the 2010-2011 UEFA Champions League was held earlier today at Monaco and it threw up some really delicious ties for Europe’s top club prize. 32 clubs were split into eight groups of four teams, who’ll play each other home and away between September and December to decide which two teams from each group advance to the first knockout round.UEFA Champions League

  • Group A: Tottenham, Inter Milan, Werder Bremen, FC Twente
  • Group B: Benfica, Lyon, Schalke, Hapoel Tel-Aviv
  • Group C: Manchester United, Rangers, Valencia, Bursaspor
  • Group D: Barcelona, Rubin Kazan, FC Copenhagen, Panathinakos
  • Group E: Bayern Munich, AS Roma, Basel, CFR Cluj
  • Group F: Chelsea, Marseille, Spartak Moscow, Zilina
  • Group G: Real Madrid, AC Milan, Ajax, Auxerre
  • Group H: Arsenal, Shakhtar Donetsk, Partizan Belgrade, Braga

Champions Inter Milan have newcomers Tottenham, Dutch champions FC Twente and Germany’s Werder Bremen alongside them with last year’s runners up Bayern Munich in Group E alongside AS Roma, Basel & CFR Cluj.

Among the other English teams, Arsenal have potentially the easiest group as they’re bunched with Shakhtar Donetsk, Partizan Belgrade and Braga in group H. Premier League champs Chelsea were drawn alongside Marseille, Spartak Moscow and Zilina. Manchester United will face a tricky tie against SPL Champions Rangers with Valencia and Bursaspor the other teams in group C.

As is the case always, there’s the ubiquitous group of death and it is group G, with Real Madrid, Ajax, AC Milan and Auxerre grouped together innit!

The action kicks off on the 14th of September.
