Spanish side Real Madrid beat neighbours Atletico on penalties in last season’s final, becoming European champions for a record 11th time.

Zinedine Zidane’s side meet German outfit Borussia Dortmund, Portugal’s Sporting Lisbon and Legia Warsaw of Poland.

Guardiola makes another Barca return

Guardiola, who replaced Manuel Pellegrini at the end of last season, is Barcelona’s most successful boss, leading the Spanish club to 14 major trophies between 2008 and 2012.

He helped the Catalans, who are five-time European champions, win the Champions League in 2009 and 2011.

After leaving the Nou Camp, the former Spain midfielder took charge of German side Bayern Munich and lost to his former side in the 2014-15 Champions League semi-finals.

City, who lost to champions Real Madrid in the semi-finals last season, qualified for the group stage thanks to a 6-0 aggregate win over Romania’s Steaua Bucharest.
