Barcelona will face Juventus, Dynamo Kiev and Ferencváros in Group G in the 2020-21 Champions League group stage this season, after the draw was made in Geneva, Switzerland on Thursday.
And the 2020/21 @ChampionsLeague group G is set! It's us versus:— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) October 1, 2020
Barça’s history with Juventus in Europe is rich, especially in the last five years. Barça won their last Champions League against Juve in 2015, then were eliminated by the Bianconeri in the quarterfinals in 2017. The last time these two faced off in Europe was in the 2017-18 group stage, with a 0-0 draw in Turin and a 3-0 win for Barça at Camp Nou. Oh, and this is also Lionel Messi versus Cristiano Ronaldo in Europe.
Up next is Dynamo Kiev, a team that Barça haven’t seen in over 10 years in Europe. The last time was in the 2009-10 group stage, with Barça winning both matches. The last matchup in Barça’s group is Ferencváros from Hungary, which will be a first for the Catalans. But it also means a trip to Budapest, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
The full group stage schedule will be released in the next few hours, but Barça will face each team twice, home and away, and for now the games are expected to be played with no fans due to Covid-19.
These are the full results of the draw:
Group A: Bayern Munich, Atlético Madrid, RB Salzburg, Lokomotiv Moscow
Group B: Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter Milan, Borussia Mönchengladbach
