Australia's Champions League representatives Tom Rogic and Tommy Oar have been handed a difficult set of fixtures after the UEFA Championis League groups were announced in Monaco on Friday (AEST).
Rogic, who has already appeared in two Champions League campaigns with Celtic, saw his Scottish team drawn into group B with Bayern Munich, PSG and Anderlecht.
It sets up an enticing meeting for Celtic against newly signed Brazilian superstar Neymar, who was lured away from Barcelona in recent weeks to play for PSG on a deal that made him the world's most expensive footballer.
Fellow Socceroos Oar will be making his debut in the competition for Cypriot champions APOEL, but has been placed in the group H featuring current holders Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur.
The first matchday will be played on September 13-14 (AEST).
