Additionally, the return of Harry Kane to England adds to the anticipation. Erik ten Hag’s squad will also contend with Galatasaray and Copenhagen in this group.

Newcastle United has landed in what can only be described as the ‘Group of Death.’ They will go head-to-head with Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund, and AC Milan in six electrifying encounters.

Meanwhile, Arsenal and Manchester City have reason to be pleased with their draws. Arsenal is set to take on Sevilla, PSV, Lens.

Manchester City will face RB Leipzig, Red Star Belgrade, and Young Boys in what appears to be favorable matchups for both teams.

The group stage runs from September through December, and UEFA is expected to confirm the complete fixture schedule and kickoff times no later than Saturday morning.
