Champions League draw.

United discover Champions League group opponents

Manchester United have some mouth-watering games to look forward to in the 2020/21 Champions League, following the UEFA draw ceremony in Geneva.

The Reds regained a spot in the competition after finishing third in last season's Premier League and will begin the road to the Istanbul final later this month.

After being allocated in Pot Two, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men were drawn in Group H with Paris Saint-Germain, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir from Pots One, Three and Four respectively.

Last time around: PSG v UnitedVideo

We have only been drawn with PSG on one previous occasion, prevailing in the most dramatic of circumstances over two legs in 2018/19. The French champions led 2-0 from the first leg at Old Trafford in the last 16 but Romelu Lukaku struck a first-half double at the Parc des Princes before Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time penalty earned victory on the away-goals rule, with the teams tied 3-3 on aggregate.

RB Leipzig are new opponents for United - the German outfit were only formed in 2009 but have enjoyed a meteoric rise in the past few years, that has culminated in them finishing as high as third in the last two Bundesliga campaigns. In 2019/20, Leipzig made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League, after eliminating Tottenham and Atletico Madrid in the knock-out rounds. 

Istanbul Basaksehir are newcomers to the Champions League and have never faced the Reds but they do have our former full-back Rafael in their ranks.

The exact fixtures will not be released until Friday evening but these are the matchday dates for your calendar:

Matchday 1: 20/21 October
Matchday 2: 27/28 October
Matchday 3: 3/4 November
Matchday 4: 24/25 November
Matchday 5: 1/2 December
