WATCH: Australian keeper Ryan admits Valencia 'lucky' with Champions League draw

Australian shot-stopper Mat Ryan believes Valencia had a stroke of luck with their favourable Champions League draw on Thursday.


The La Liga outfit were drawn in the same group as Russian club Zenit St Petersburg, French side Lyon and Belgian outfit Gent.

Ryan told the official Champions League Twitter account he does not expect any easy matches during the competition, despite Valencia's group being without any of Europe's traditional continental powerhouses.

The former Club Brugge star was also excited to return to Belgium where he made a name for himself over two seasons.
