Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will do battle in the 2020/21 Champions League after Barcelona and Juventus were drawn in the same group.

LaLiga giants Barca and Serie A champions Juve were paired together in Group G along with Dynamo Kiev. 

Bayern Munich, who beat Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) 1-0 to be crowned champions of Europe for a sixth time in Lisbon in August, will come up against Atletico Madrid in Group A. 

PSG were drawn with Manchester United and RB Leipzig in what looks a tough Group H, while Liverpool - winners off the competition in 2019 - will lock horns with Ajax and Atalanta in Group D. 

Real Madrid are in Group B with Shakhtar Donetsk and Inter, while Europa League holders Sevilla and Chelsea will be expected to advance from a Group E that will see them face Krasnodar. Zenit, Borussia Dortmund and Lazio are in Group F.
