AC Milan have been drawn in the group that many consider to be hardest of all the Champions League groups, and each game will have some interesting sub-plots.
In today’s draw in Monaco, Milan were put in Group F alongside Ligue 1 winner Paris Saint-Germain, Bundesliga runners-up Borussia Dortmund and Premier League side Newcastle United.
There are quite a few players who will be eager to face off against former clubs, starting with the PSG game where Mike Maignan and Yacine Adli will go back to the club where they both spent a large chunk of their youth careers.
Of course, Gianluigi Donnarumma will finally return to San Siro as well after his controversial exit, while Theo Hernandez, Olivier Giroud and Maignan will face off against a few of their French international team-mates. Theo will also face his brother, Lucas.
Moving on to Dortmund, the obvious story line involves Christian Pulisic going back to the team where he made a name for himself in Europe. He will face his USA team-mate Gio Reyna too.
Finally, the Newcastle United game needs little introduction, after Sandro Tonali’s club-record move there and other sub-plots like the Sven Botman battle.
