A Ronaldo-inspired Manchester United also take on Young boys, while Europa League winners Villarreal take on Italian side Atalanta in the other group F fixture.
Barcelona would be starting their campaign without former talisman, Messi for the first time in as many years when they take on German dictators, Bayern Munich in what could well be the fiercest of all the encounters tonight.
