Barça drawn in the Group of Champions
Barça have been drawn in Group D of the Champions League together with Panathinaikos, FC Copenhagen and Rubin Kazan.
The draw for the group stage of the Champions League was made in Monaco on Thursday afternoon.
Although the other three teams may not be that well known to many fans, they all won their
respective leagues last season. In fact, Group D is the only group to feature four league champions
and Barça fans will remember that Russian champions Rubin Kazan produced a shock win in the Camp
Nou at the same stage last season.
UEFA Club Player awards
During the draw, the winners of the 2009-10 UEFA Club Players awards
were announced. Reigning European champions Inter Milan scooped all four prizes - Julio Cesar
(goalkeeper), Maicon (defender), Sneijder (midfielder) and Milito (forward). Milito also took the
award for Best Club Player.
