City, semi-finalists in 2017 and 2018, have a first-leg home advantage versus Fiorentina and will travel to Italy the following week. Fiorentina were beaten 6-0 on aggregate by Arsenal in the Champions League last season.

The 16 sides were divided into two groups of eight – four seeded teams and four unseeded – for the draw, with no club being able to meet a side from their own association. Covid-19 travel restrictions were also taken into account.

Holders Lyon, record seven-time winners and bidding for a sixth successive title, face Danish side Brondby.
