The final will be held in Russia this year, and Manchester City’s opponents for the early rounds of the tournament were announced on Thursday.
The city has been assignment to Group A and will travel to France, Germany, and Belgium between now and December 1.

Stage draw as the Blues prepare to face European giants PSG…
Manchester City’s first opponent, from the scary Pot 2, will be Paris Saint-Germain
whom the Blues defeated 4-1 on aggregate in last season’s semi-finals.
Paris SG has played City five times before, with the Blues never losing.
PSG has recruited Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi to their roster this summer.
PSG has never played City in the Champions League group stages, with the five prior encounters taking place in the knockout rounds or the UEFA Cup.
In the group rounds of this year’s tournament, Pep Guardiola’s team will face RB Leipzig of the Bundesliga.
Manchester City has never faced Leipzig in a competitive match,
despite the fact that Leipzig memorably eliminated Manchester United from the Champions League last season.
Manchester City’s group included Club Brugge of Belgium. City, like RB Leipzig, has never faced the Belgian team in a competitive match.
Although specific match dates have still to be advertise, the Blues will play their
first Champions League game on September 14th or 15th, and their group stage campaign will end on December 7th or 8th.
