Reigning European champions Bayern Munich will begin their title defense against Atlético Madrid, Red Bull Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moscow in Group A of this year’s Uefa Champions League while Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are set meet again in Group D.

Bayern will hope to draw on their emphatic European campaign last year, the success of which was reflected in the fact that Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich and forward Robert Lewandowski were given the awards for men’s best goalkeeper, defender and forward during the draw in Geneva.  EFE-EPA
