Blues drawn in Group D alongside reigning champions
City once again face a difficult challenge following Thursday's Champions League group stage draw in Monaco, after being drawn in the same group as reigning champions Bayern Munich.
The club will also meet CSKA Moscow and FC Viktoria Plzen after being drawn in Group D.
The Blues disappointing performances in their previous two Champions League campaigns, failing to progress from the group stage on each occasion, meant that the club were in Pot 3 for the draw.
City will be relieved, however, to have avoided to have avoided groups B and H, which contained Real Madrid and Juventus, and Barcelona and AC Milan, respectively.
