2013-2014 UEFA Champions League Draw: Bayern Munich get CSKA Moscow, Manchester City, Viktoria Plzen

Harold Cunningham

The Champions League draw has taken place. Where did Bayern Munich land?

The draw for the 2013-2014 UEFA Champions League has been completed, and we now know where the first half of Bayern Munich's European adventure will take them. Bayern were drawn into Group D with CSKA Moscow, Manchester City, and Viktoria Plzen.

The group is great for me, because while Bayern should advance, it's not an easy group. The matches will be challenging, and Bayern should be tested throughout the group matches. Pep Guardiola's side will need to be prepared from the start to avoid slipping away from the Allianz. Hopefully, they'll avoid a slip-up like last season in Belarus away to BATE Borisov.

The full draw is as follows:

Group A Group B Group C Group D Group E Group F Group G Group H
Manchester United Real Madrid Benfica Bayern München Chelsea Arsenal Porto Barcelona
Shakhtar Donetsk Juventus Paris Saint-Germain CSKA Moscow Schalke Marseille Atletico Madrid Milan
Bayer Leverkusen Galatasaray Olympiacos Manchester City Basel Borussia Dortmund Zenit Ajax
Real Sociedad Copenhagen Anderlecht Viktoria Plzen Steaua Bucharest Napoli Austria Wien Celtic

What's your initial reaction to the group that Bayern have received? Davis will follow later with a more thorough analysis of the group and what we should expect from this year's Champions League. Next, UEFA will be announcing the Best Player in Europe Award. Hopefully, Franck Ribery can take that award over Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
