The UEFA Champions League, which is regarded as the most European prestigious football tournament in football will now be underway again on this Tuesday.
Real Madrid are the holders of the trophy are the only club to have won the tournament two times consecutively since 1992.
Now, who will win the UEFA Champions League this round? Will Real Madrid manage to retain it again?
Let’s take a look at 5 teams that could win the competition this year.
5. Liverpool – Premier League
People may think that Liverpool are not the favorite candidate to win the UEFA Champions League trophy this time around. But the Premier League side will surely make it.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have been magnificent this season producing some of the best strikes in front of the goal.
The Merseysiders have recorded their biggest Champions League win in almost 10 years as they thrashed Maribor and Spartak Moskva.
Klopp’s men thrashed both sides 7-0 with Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Trent Alexander-Arnold were all on target.
The Reds have been previously renowned for their weak backline, but Virgil van Dijk’s addition will definitely be in the competition with some momentum.
4. Bayern Munich – Bundesliga
Bayern Munich have the ability to go through and make their way to the UEFA Champions League final.
The Bavarians have started the season with poor performance. But since they sacked Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti, the club have returned to their best performance.
Indeed, the Bundesliga side have enough experience to perform confidently in the competition.
3. Paris Saint-Germain – Ligue 1
The French side will head to the knockout stages looking to knock out the holders Real Madrid.
With Madrid are now having a disappointing season, PSG will have an easy work and well-paved road to run.
If Madrid have Ronaldo as their savior, the Parisians have Neymar, Edinson Cavani, and Kylian Mbappe.
