Barcelona's path in the UEFA Champions League group stage has been decided after the draw took place on Thursday in Monaco. The Blaugrana will be in Group C, and it's the Group of Death for the Catalan giants:

Pep Guardiola returns to Camp Nou for the second time as Barça face Manchester City AGAIN, which means Claudio Bravo also comes back to the Catalan capital just days after leaving the club. Then we face Borussia Mönchengladbach, one of the toughest teams in Germany and one of the toughest stadiums in Europe. And then there's Celtic, who beat Barça in the group stage three years ago, one of the biggest upsets in recent history.

So yeah, this isn't an easy group at all. Which isn't surprising. At all.

These are full results of the draw with all eight groups and 32 teams put together:

What do you think of Barça's group, Blaugranes? Easy, tough, medium, Death?
