WHAT YOU SAID: Reaction to Bravo's signing

WHAT YOU SAID: Reaction to Bravo's signing

City will open their Champions League Group C campaign at home to Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Blues beat BMG 4-2 at the Etihad last season and take them on again at the Etihad on 13 September.

Next up is the trip to Parkhead for what should be an unforgettable first meeting with Celtic. The Blues will face the Scottish Premier League champions on 28 September - one of four successive away games with two trips to Swansea before the tie and another to Tottenham.

Then come two epic back-to-back ties against Barcelona that will go a long way to shaping the final group placings.

City will play the Catalans twice inside a fortnight with the first clash at the Camp Nou on 19 October and the return at the Etihad on 1 November.

The Blues then travel to Borussia-Park for the return clash with Monchengladbach on 23 November before wrapping up the group stage action against Celtic on 6 December.

Full ticket details and selling criteria for all Champions’ League Group Stage home fixtures will be announced tomorrow...
