UEFA Champions League Group Stage Draw Live Updates: Champions League group stage draw got underway in Istanbul, which host the final next year. Real Madrid were placed in Group F, with German side RB Leipzig joining them. Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus will battle it out for the top spot in Group H. The season’s final will be played in Istanbul itself, on June 10 next year at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium. Istanbul was supposed to host the final in 2020 and again in 2021, but on each occasion UEFA moved the game to Portugal due to pandemic-related restrictions. Defending champions Real Madrid will be looking forward to dominating the Europe’s elite clubs, after defeating Liverpool 1-0 in last year’s final. Russian clubs are banned because of the ongoing war, but Ukraine — where a new domestic season kicked off this week — will be represented by Shakhtar Donetsk.
