AC Milan, Inter, Atalanta, and Juventus now know their Champions League fates after Thursday evening’s Champions League draw.

Atalanta have fared better than Serie A’s other representatives in recent seasons, going further than any other Italian side in their debut season in 2019/20, before being knocked out by Real Madrid in 2020/21’s Round of 16, at the same point that Juventus and Lazio fell.

Juventus have been handed a tough ask in Group H against European champions Chelsea. Juventus also face Zenit Saint Petersburg, and Malmo in Group H.

Inter, as Serie A champions, were in Pot 1 and landed themselves in Group D. They’ll play Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk and Sheriff.

Atalanta, now in their third consecutive season in the Champions League, are in Group F and will meet Europa League winners Villarreal, Manchester United, and Young Boys.

AC Milan are back in the competition’s group stage for the first time in seven years. Milan have been drawn in Group B against Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, and Porto.
