The UEFA Champions League is the biggest competition in soccer’s club level competitions. It is contested among the top-division European clubs to be crowned the best club in Europe. The 2019/20 edition of this competition will start on the 17th of September, 2019. The final of the competition will take place at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey on 30th May 2020. The VAR (Video Assistant Referee) will be used for this upcoming season of the Champions League.
Among the 32 teams, a few big European Clubs are expected to win the crown of Europe’s best. Liverpool, being the defending champions and having played in the last two finals, are also one of them. With Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, they have one of the best-attacking trios in the world. Their center-back Dan Vjik is a strong contender for Ballon d’Or this year and Jurgen Klopp will surely do his best to get his side win their seventh Champions League in history.
Manchester City dominated English football last season after they shocked the world by winning a domestic treble. They already won the FA Community Shield this season. The city has suffered in the Champions League in the last few seasons even after being one of the favorites every year. They failed to get to the final of Champions League every season but they are the top-most favorite to win their first-ever Champions League in the 2019/20 season. Guardiola has already added a few more talents to his already dominating team like Rodrigo and Joao Cancelo.
FC Barcelona is very hungry to win the Champions League again, which would be their first since 2014. Lionel Messi stated before the start of last season that, he eagerly wants to win the Champions League. However, Barcelona lost to Liverpool in the semi-final last year in dramatic fashion. Messi again stated that they will do everything they can to win the Champions League this season. FC Barcelona brought in Antoine Griezemann in their mission to retain the crown for Europe’s best.
Real Madrid is the most successful club in European competition and they are always one of the favorites to win the Champions League. The club went through a very bad spell last season after they lost their main-man Cristiano Ronaldo. Zinedine Zidane has come back to the manager position again in Madrid and has brought in many new signing in hopes of winning the Champions League again. Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic will be keen to show their worth by delivering their new club the Champions League for the 14th time in history.
Juventus have made a fantastic team this year and they already have Cristiano Ronaldo, who often is called the Greatest Player in the Champions League. The only reason Juventus brought Ronaldo last season was to win the pinnacle of European competition and Ronaldo has also stated that he will surely win it with Juventus soon. PSG is another club that could finally win the Champions League in the 2019/20 season.
A very exciting Champions League soccer lies ahead with many title-contenders around Europe. The draw for the group stage is set to be on the 29th August in Monaco and many of the qualifying rounds for the group stages are already taking place.
