Pep Guardiola will take his Manchester City side to the Nou Camp to face former club Barcelona following an eye-catching Champions League draw. 

The Citizens, who beat Steaua Bucharest to reach the group stage, will also face Borussia Monchengladbach and Scottish champions Celtic in Group C of the competition.

Arsenal will also face a stern test, heading to France to face Unai Emery’s Paris Saint-Germain. The Gunners have enjoyed an otherwise relatively kind draw, though, with FC Basel and Bulgarian side Ludogorets the other opposition in Group A.

Premier League champions Leicester, who are making their debut in the competition, have managed to avoid the giants of Europe by being joined in Group G by Porto, Club Brugge, and FC Copenhagen.
