How happy should the Premier League sides be with their Champions League groups?
Man City, Arsenal, Leicester and Tottenham discovered their fates18:24 Thursday 25 August 2016, 18:24 25 Aug 2016
The UEFA Champions League group stage draw always throws up a couple of intriguing ties and 2016-17 is no different.
It's an interesting one from the four Premier League sides' perspective, with more established teams like Manchester City and Arsenal being pitched into comparatively tricky pools on paper in comparison to Leicester, who have never been here before, and Tottenham who are returning to Europe's elite for the first time since 2010-11.
But how happy will the four sides be?
Group G Opponents: Porto, Club Brugge, FC Copenhagen.
It's a slightly softer introduction to the Champions League than Leicester could have been faced with.
FC Porto have plenty of European pedigree, although they are perhaps not as strong as they have been in the previous decade. But Club Brugge and FC Copenhagen are certainly not beyond the Foxes' capabilities.
As Leicester lack European experience, they could endure a couple of adverse results but have enough to finish in the Top 2.
Prediction: Second in Group G behind Porto.
Group E Opponents: CSKA Moscow, Bayer Leverkusen, Monaco
Like their Premier League rivals, Spurs could have been pitched into a much tougher predicament but CSKA Moscow, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco will not cause panic.
The three sides are experienced at this level and have talent in their squads but are not superior to a Tottenham side that are well managed and have firepower of their own.
Prediction: Second in Group E behind Bayer Leverkusen.
Group A Opponents: PSG, Basel, Ludogorets Razgrad
The presence of Paris Saint-Germain will make it tough for Arsenal to top the group.
PSG are regulars in the knockout stages and have attacking strength in their squad in the shape of Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria.
Arsenal can beat them on their day but the Gunners do have a habit of being a bit inconsistent, so second in the group is likely.
FC Basel and Ludogorets are teams that Arsene Wenger's side are more than likely to finish above.
Prediction: Second in Group A... then eliminated in the last-16 as per recent tradition.
Group C Opponents: Barcelona, Borussia Monchengladbach, Celtic
Pep Guardiola's side should make it out of their group but the chances of topping it will depend on head-to-head ties with Barcelona.
Guardiola knows Barca extremely well but whether his own City side has developed enough to out-point them is unlikely.
Borussia Monchengladbach could be tricky but while a trip to Celtic Park will also be intriguing, they should have enough to finish second.
Prediction: Second in Group C behind Barcelona.
