City wary of Shakhtar threat as European reunion looms

City wary of Shakhtar threat as European reunion looms

Former Real Madrid and Brazil forward, Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, popularly known as Ronaldo has reacted to the 2018/2019 UEFA's Champions League draws. As well as a rematch of the spectacular Roma-Liverpool semi-final.

Manchester City are wary of the threat posed by Champions League Group A rivals Shakhtar Donetsk after being tested by the Ukrainian side in last season's competition, the Premier League club's director of football Txiki Begiristain has said.

Liverpool met Red Star Belgrade in the last 16 of the European Cup in 1973-74, with the Reds losing both the home and away legs.

Group D: Lokomotiv Moscow, Porto, Schalke, Galatasaray.

Eredivisie champions PSV Eindhoven and Inter Milan complete the line-up in Spurs' Group B and Red Star Belgrade are the other team to play Jurgen Klopp's side in Group C.

Recall that Naija News reported that the Champions League draws was held in Nyon, Switzerland on Thursday.

Manchester City impressed last season and look like heavy favorites to top their group once again.

"They're a club that are always in these rounds of the competition and in recent years have produced brilliant performances".

Coming up against Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus was tough enough but Mourinho's heart must have sunk when La Liga big shots Valencia were also drawn in Group H.

Carlo Ancelotti, who became coach of Napoli in the close season, will return to the French capital, where he led PSG to the title in 2013.

"It's a manageable group, but it all depends on us". Shakhtar remained the only Ukrainian team in the Champions League. They're a very quick team that handles their transitions well.

Their problems are such right now that any opposition might have represented a real challenge, but a group of the formidable Juventus, a returning Ronaldo, a revived, canny Valencia and awkward Young Boys is particularly fierce.

The Yellow and Blacks could easily end up with the dreaded bagel, zero points, at the end of their campaign - and may not even manage a goal.

Group B: Barcelona, Tottenham, PSV Eindhoven, Inter Milan.

Real won the trophy for the third season running - and 13th time overall - when they beat Liverpool 3-1 in Kiev in May, although their hopes of making it four in a row were hit by the subsequent departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and resignation of coach Zinedine Zidane.
