CL produces heavyweight matchups even without a Super League


AP Global Soccer Writer

The Champions League group stage will see a clash of two of the richest clubs after Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City were drawn together on Thursday. Both are yet to win Europe’s top prize despite all their funding from the sovereign wealth of Gulf states. Qatar-backed PSG was knocked out in the semifinals last season by City, which went on to lose the final to Chelsea. Also in Group A are Leipzig and Club Brugge. There are other heavyweight pairings this season. Six-time winner Bayern Munich and five-time champion Barcelona are in Group E with Benfica and Dynamo Kyiv.
