With a Spanish team winning each of the last five Champions League titles, is this the year their dominance comes to an end?

Juventus will face Manchester United in the Champions League group stage this season, giving Cristiano Ronaldo a chance to play against his former team.

Ronaldo, who joined Juve from Real Madrid earlier this summer, has only faced United in three games since leaving Old Trafford in 2009 — a two-legged round-of-16 Champions League tie in 2013, and the 2017 UEFA Super Cup.

Ronaldo scored in each leg of the 2013 clash as Real Madrid advanced 3-2 on aggregate. Last summer, he came on as a late substitute as Real beat United 2-1 in Macedonia.

There will also be a return to Spain for Ronaldo as Group H is filled out with La Liga club Valencia, as well as Swiss champions Young Boys.

Liverpool received one of the more difficult draws as UEFA conducted the draw on Thursday in Monaco. Jurgen Klopp’s side, the top-ranked team in Pot 3 based on UEFA’s coefficients, will face Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli as well as a trip to Red Star Belgrade.

Barcelona will not face an easy path into the group stage either, as they were drawn with Tottenham, Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven and Inter Milan.

Group A: Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Monaco, Club Brugge

Group B: Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur, PSV Eindhoven, Inter Milan

Group C: Paris Saint-Germain, Napoli, Liverpool, Red Star Belgrade
