Football is back! Well, it never went away, but the UEFA Champions League had a very short summer break (preliminaries started just two weeks after Manchester City beat Inter).
Now we’re back with the 23/24 edition of the competition and here’s all the information you need before the draw.
Real Madrid, Napoli, Bayern Munich, Atlético Madrid, Manchester City… Newcastle? Who will take home the trophy this year?
Well, early predictions from the bespectacled and white coat gurus have put Pep Guardiola and the sky blue machine at the top of the pops as favorites to win. The Manchester club made good signings in bringing in Kovacic, Guardiola and Doku, so maybe we’ll see Erling in the final again.
Other contenders to achieve eternal glory on the European stage are Boehly’s plucky Chelsea, Mbappé and the love of his life, PSG, or perhaps Xavinet breaking through for FC Barcelona.
