The draw for the champions league draw has just been made with Group D looking like the “Group of Death”.
After an underwhelming maiden tournament last year Roberto Mancini will be hoping to qualify for the next stage. However with Real Madrid, Ajax and Borussia Dortmund (all champions of their respective countries) in their group it will be a hard task to complete.
Celtic could of got it easier with Barcelona and Benfica but they can hold realistic ambitions of a 3rd place and Europa league spot along with Spartak Moscow. Their away form seems to be improving and they are a match for any at Celtic Park.
Holders Chelsea got Juventus,Shakhtar Donetsk and newcomers FC Nordsjaelland.
Arsenal face trips to Schalke, Olympiakos, Montpellier and Man Utd will play Braga, Galatasaray, CFR Cluj in Group H.
Group A: Porto, Dynamo Kiev, Paris St Germain, Dinamo Zagreb.

Group C: AC Milan, Zenit St Petersburg, Anderlecht, Malaga.
