Champions League Preview 2019/20 Posted On 30 August 2019

This year’s Champions League pits the giants of Europe against each other once again.

Last season, English teams ruled with the first all-English final for over a decade ending with Liverpool winning their sixth Champions League.  The usual heavyweights from across the continent such as Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus will hope to stop the resurgence of English teams this year.

Let’s have a look at five clubs we believe could go the whole way this year: 

Manchester City.
Possibly one of the greatest teams ever created, Pep Guardiola’s Citizens will hope to claim the elusive trophy they crave so much. The addition of Rodri from Atletico Madrid could be the final piece of the puzzle. With a settled team full of world-class talent, will this be the year Guardiola gets his tactics right in Europe? 

Atletico Madrid
Atletico may have lost three of their most well-loved players in Griezmann, Rodri and Godin, however they have spent the money wisely securing the talent of Joao Felix, in attack, from Benfica for £113,000,000 who will join the likes of Saul, Morata, Diego Costa and last year’s big signing, Thomas Lemar in Madrid.

Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund may have only won the Champions League once in their history, however last year they were only two points from winning the Bundesliga and have arguably spent more wisely than their biggest rivals, Bayern Munich, over the summer. Snapping up two of the hottest players in Thorgan Hazard and Julian Brandt. 

Juventus
The Bianconeri haven’t lifted the Champions League since the 1995/96 season. With Ronaldo defying his years and an influx of genuinely world-class players in Aaron Ramsey, Adrien Rabiot and Matthijs de Ligt arriving this summer, will Maurizio Sarri be able to rebuild his reputation after his time with Chelsea?

Paris Saint-Germain
Arguably one of the most talented teams in Europe on paper, Thomas Tuchel has struggled to get the consistency required to turn PSG into genuine Champions League contenders. With Neymar angling for a move back to Spain, it falls on the young shoulders of Kylian Mbappe and the ageing Edinson Cavani to lead them to glory.

The draw for the group stage was held yesterday afternoon. For information about who your team drew follow the link below
