Manchester United’s Champions League group stage opponents for the coming season have been determined.
Group F: Manchester United, Villarreal, Atalanta, Young boys
United play against Villarreal, last season’s opponent in the Europa League.
Objectively speaking, things could have been worse. Villarreal is one of the weakest Pot 1 teams and United could have played against Bayern.
Even so, Villarreal will be hard to beat and the games will be an uncomfortable reminder of the last loss they lost last season.

Atalanta from Serie A will be a tough opponent. Amad’s ex-club are a fun, offensive side that made it to the quarter-finals two years ago.
Swiss champions Young Boys form the group. You were in United’s group under Jose Mourinho in 2019.
The first games of the group stage will be in the week of 14./15. September.
Last year United played against PSG, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir.
Another notable group draw from this year’s competition was City’s landing in the same group as PSG, along with RB Leipzig.
