New opponents and old friends 

Barça and Slavia Prague have never met before in official competition so history will be made when the blaugranes take on the Czech club who eliminated Romanian side Cluj in the qualifying round. 

Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund met Barça in the 1998 UEFA Super Cup final that ended in victory for the blaugranes but the two teams have never crossed paths before in the Champions League. 

In contrast it will be the third time that FC Barcelona face Inter Milan in the group stage of the competition. The most recent meetings between the two clubs came last season when Barça claimed a 2-0 win at Camp Nou before taking a point in a 1-1 draw at the Guiseppe Meazza stadium.
