It’s a VERY tough group for Barça. VERY tough.

The UEFA Champions League Draw took place on Thursday in Monaco with the 32 best teams in Europe being drawn into eight groups, and Barcelona have found that their path into the knockout stage will be very tricky.

The Blaugrana will face Tottenham Hotspur, PSV Eindhoven and Inter Milan in Group B, with the matches to be played every two or three weeks from September to December.

Spurs are maybe the third best team in English football and have a side filled with young, attacking talent that is incredibly well coached by Mauricio Pochettino. PSV are a typical Dutch side that plays attacking football and has one of the most exciting young players in Europe, Mexican star Hirving Lozano. Inter are getting better and better under manager Luciano Spaletti and have an explosive attack led by Mauro Icardi.

So yeah, this is a very tough draw and Ernesto Valverde’s men will need to play six very good games to not only qualify, but win this group.
