Lionel Messi’s PSG drawn against Man City hours after Cristiano Ronaldo ‘agrees’ transfer

Manchester City were handed a tricky Champions League draw as they will play RB Leipzig, Club Brugge and Lionel Messi’s Paris Saint-Germain in the group stages

Manchester City have been handed a nightmare draw in the Champions League, with Lionel Messi’s Paris Saint-Germain heading to The Etihad in the group stages.

Having won the Premier League, City were one of eight teams in Pot 1, with the hope that they would have avoided one of the giants in the second pot.

However, with PSG only finishing as Ligue 1 runners-up last term, they were the team put with City in Group A.

Pep Guardiola’s side dumped the Parisians out of last season’s competition, beating them 4-1 on aggregate in the semi-final.

It was an ill-tempered affair, with the second leg in Manchester punctuated by a series of scuffles in the closing minutes.
