Champions League groups are now known. Traditionally inaugurating the European club season, the draw ceremony of the group stage was held Thursday in Monaco. Seven Moroccan players take part in the most prestigious competition in the world of football. From the outset, we note the presence of a Lion of the Atlas in the hen the most raised. Evolving for the second consecutive season at Borussia Dortmund, Achraf Hakimi and his teammates have not been spared, since they face FC Barcelona, Inter Milan and Slavia Prague. If the latter is an expiatory victim, confrontations with the Catalans and Lombards promise sparks. This is also the case for Younès Belhanda and Galatasaray, who shot in group A, alongside Real Madrid, Paris SG and Bruges.
The trio of Ajax again to the assault of Europe
At the age of 32, Youssef El Arabi will discover for the first time in his career the top European level with his new club, Olympiacos. The Greeks will have the mission to qualify in a group that includes Bayern Munich, the finalist of the previous edition, Tottenham and the formidable club in Belgrade, the Red Star. The Ajax Amsterdam trio Hakim Ziyech of Morocco, Noussair Mazraoui and Zakaria Labyad face Chelsea, Valencia and the "Dogues" of Lille. Finally, Adel Taarabt and Benfica were rather sparing, since they inherit a group G which include Zenit St Petersburg, Olympique Lyonnais and RB Leipzig.
