Having put in the seeded pot Man United clearly avoided the big guns in the UCL. Man United was drawn into the Group H together with SC Braga from Portugal, Galatasaray (Turkey) and CFR Cluj (Romania). Of All Galatasay will pose the biggest threat especially when playing at their home turf. The famous Ali Sami Yen Stadium may no longer exist, however the new stadium Turk Telekom Arena surely be hosting the same hostile reception for the Red Devils.
Man United should have no problem to advance from the group stage as the group winner.
Surely the most talk about group would be the Group D. Easily dubbed as the Group of Death as Real Madrid, Manchester City, Ajax and Borussia Dortmund were drawn into this group. Very tough group indeed. Let wait and see how our noisy neighbour fare in this group.
Man United will start the campaign on 19 September 2012 at Old Trafford against Galatasary, 18.45 GMT. Time in Malaysia at about 2.45am (20 September 2012).
