Champions League draw: Complicated rivals for Bara, Real Madrid, Atltico and Valencia in the group stage – La Provincia

The FC Barcelona has been the most damaged Spanish team this Thursday in the draw for the 2019/2020 Champions League group stage, when paired with Inter from Milan, Borussia Dortmund and Slavia from Prague, while Real Madrid Y Valencia they have left better unemployed; and the Atlético de Madrid he will have to sweat in group D against Juventus.

The team of Ernesto Valverde, semifinalist last year, will face a tough group against Borussia, one of the most powerful of the hype 2, Inter de Milan, the strongest in group 3, and Slavia from Prague, which softens the participation of the Catalans in their eagerness to access the knockout stages of the top continental competition.

For its part, the Real Madrid has been framed in group A and will play against Paris Saint-Germain, a duel full of morbidity for the future of Neymar and Keylor Navas, among others, Bruges and Galatasaray, always uncomfortable because of the difficulty of playing in Turkey. In any case it seems a kinder group than Barça.

In addition, the Atlético de Madrid He fell in Group D with Juventus of Turin, his executioner last season, Bayern Leverkusen, whom he has eliminated in the last five years on the way to the finals, and Lokomotiv of Moscow, the weakest of the four. Those of Simeone should not have problems to overcome the initial phase of the 'Champions'.

And finally, Valencia has come out well stopped in group H against Chelsea, current European League champion, Ajax – semi-finalist in the 2018/19 season – and Lille, French runner-up who completes the shortlist. A good group considering the bad luck that the 'che' picture had last season.
