Group E: Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Benfica, Dynamo Kyiv
Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić spoke about the group after the draw was made.
"Barcelona are a different team without Messi, but still a good team. Benfica are a traditional club who always bring through good players. It’s an interesting task we want to manage. We hope we don’t have to play in Kiev in the middle of winter, but seriously, we want to get through the group, ideally top it, and then move on to the round of 16," he said.
