The biggest team tournament in the world brings together some of the World’s best players and the teams on display in the 2018/19 Champions League season have some real stars. We’ve looked at the top 5 teams in this year’s Champions League and predicted the finishing positions of them.
Star Man – Lionel Messi.
Stadium – Camp Nou.
Champions League wins – 5.
FC Barcelona are one of the most celebrated teams in the world and their Champions League form under former manager Pep Guardiola was sensational. They won the competition in 2006, 2–9 and 2011 before adding a fifth Champions League win in 2015 when they beat Juventus. Their win at Wembley against Manchester United was one of the best performances by any team in this competition.
Star man – Luka Modric.
Stadium – Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
Champions League wins – 13.
Real Madrid made it 13 Champions League trophies last season when they won their third in a row after beating Liverpool in Kiev. Before these wins, no team had ever retained the UEFA Champions League trophy – to put in to context how tremendous this achievement was. Now Cristiano Ronaldo has moved on Real Madrid look much weaker and they are struggling in La Liga this season. This poor form could lead to an earlier than expected exit and we’re going for a quarter final loss in our Champions League betting tips for Real Madrid.
Star man – Robert Lewandowski.
Stadium – Allianz Arena.
Champions League wins – 5.
FC Bayern Munich finally got their hands back on the Champions League trophy when they beat Borussia Dortmund at Wembley in 2013. Before that win they had lost two of the previous three finals including one at their own stadium against Chelsea. Lewandowski is still their main goalscoring threat but with the likes of Ribery and Robben getting into their twilight years and a defence not as stable as it once was, we’re not expecting a sixth Champions League for Bayern Munich this season.
Star man – David Silva.
Stadium – Etihad Stadium.
Champions League wins – 0.
It seems like everybody is just waiting for Manchester City to win the Champions League under Pep Guardiola and this could well be their season to do it. With players such as Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bryune in their line-up, cooupled with a tremendous goalkeeper and strong back four, they don’t have a weakness on the pitch. The concern is that Man City haven’t yet found a way to play in the Champions League and they have conceded too many goals too often, iron this out and this could be the season they win their first Champions League trophy.
Star man – Cristiano Ronaldo.
Stadium – Allianz Stadium.
Champions League wins – 2.
The signing of Cristiano Ronaldo has given Juventus a real chance to win the tournament this year but in our Champions League betting tips we think they’ll fall just short. The Old Lady lost the final in 2014 when they were beaten by Real Madrid but their team is arguably stronger this time around. Ronaldo is joined by Dybala and Madzukic and the likes of Pjanic, Cuadrado provide great service to their front players.
It would be on of Cristiano Ronaldo’s biggest achievements if he can guide his new team to a Champions League trophy, but in what looks like an open tournament this season, they have a good chance.
