United learn European dates
Manchester United will play Braga, Galatasaray and CFR Cluj in the group stage of the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League following the draw in Monaco.
Old Trafford legend Denis Law helped pull out the teams at the ceremony with Sir Alex Ferguson’s side being drawn in Group H. The Reds have never met Portuguese outfit Braga nor Romanian side Cluj in a competitive clash before but the matches with Galatasaray will evoke memories of 1993 and 1994 and two keenly-contested goalless draws at the Ali Sami Yen.
United’s fixtures are as follows: Galatasaray (H) 19 September, Cluj (A) 2 October, Braga (H) 23 October, Braga (A) 7 November, Galatasaray (A) 20 November and Cluj (H) 5 December.
Group A: Porto, Dynamo Kiev, PSG, Dinamo Zagreb.
Group B: Arsenal, Schalke, Olympiacos, Montpellier.
