UEFA Champions League draw results

Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) conducted a live Champions league draw on Thursday night, whose results have ignited an environment of anticipation of mouth-watering clashes in a good number of groups.

Defending champions and Group H top seeds Barcelona have AC Milan in their group  and the two European giants' matches are ones to watch out for in that group. 

Bayern Munich, finalists in 2010, were topseeds in Group A, and will be more worried that they have Manchester City in their group than any other opponents. Group A appears to be the more balanced and more difficult group with other European club superpowers like Napoli and Villarreal .

Top seeds in Group D Real Madrid have their work cut out as they also appear to be in a tight group featuring Olympic Lyon and former winners Ajax Amsterdam, while Dinamo Zagreb can only be underestimated at one's peril.

Group F is not an easy group either. Arsenal may be topseeds, but they are not favoured to finish top, especially with opposition from on-form Borrussia Dortmund. The German Champions might have lost 0-1 to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in a Bundesliga match recently, but they are a formiddable outfit capable of topping the group at the end of the campaign. Marseille of France will also add to the real fight in this group.

Inter Milan and Porto are expected to find life relatively easier in Groups B and G respectively as compared to their feelow topseeds, but there is no room for complacency in the Champions league these days.

All teams were placed in ports, depending on the points accumulated from Champions league participation in the past five years. The team which appears first in each group was drawn from Port1, while the second team came from Port2, third from Port3 and the last team was drawn from Port4. 

These are the results of Thursday night's Champions League Group stages draw.

Group A: Bayern Munich, Villarreal, Manchester City, Napoli
Group B: Inter Milan, CSKA Moscow, Lille, Trabzonspor
Group C: Manchester United, Benfica, Basel, Otelul Galati
Group D: Real Madrid, Lyon, Ajax, Dinamo Zagreb
Group E: Chelsea, Valencia, Bayer Leverkusen, Genk
Group F: Arsenal, Marseille, Olympiakos, Borussia Dortmund
Group G: Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk, Zenit St Petersburg, APOEL
Group H: Barcelona, Milan, BATE Borisov, Viktoria Plzen
