2019/20 UEFA Champions League preview

The UEFA Champions League is the biggest club tournament in Europe, if not the world.

It features all the top teams from across the continent, who do battle in a group stage followed by knockout ties.

Last season we saw an all Premier League final as Liverpool met Tottenham Hotspur and it was The Reds who came out on top.

Jurgen Klopp’s team won the match 2-0 thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi and Liverpool will enter the 2019/20 Champions League as one of the favourites to lift the trophy.

Liverpool may not have added any major signings to their squad over the summer but they have kept the same successful group of players together from last season.

Let’s not forget Liverpool also reached the 2017/18 Champions League final, so they must be considered one of the early favourites to win the competition again this season.

Remaining in English football and last season’s Premier League champions, Manchester City, will be hoping to progress further in the Champions League than they have in their history.

Pep Guardiola has conquered the Premier League but is yet to get the formula right for the Champions League.

Manchester City have been eliminated at the quarter-final stage by English opposition in each of the last two seasons and will be hoping to reach the final this time.

Manchester City are the favourites to win the Champions League in the eyes of most bookmakers but before you place a bet, you should head to Betenemy.

Many punters will be choosing to bet on Barcelona to win the 2019/20 Champions League.

You must go back to 2014/15 to find the last time Barcelona won the Champions League and they have failed to get beyond the semi-final stage since.

They have been active in the transfer market and have added Antoine Griezmann, Frenkie de Jong, Neto, Junior Firpo and Emerson to their ranks.

A front three of Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann is very exciting and could propel Barcelona to Champions League success.

However, they will face stiff competition from La Liga rivals, Real Madrid. It has been a turbulent summer for Zinedine Zidane but he has added Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Eder Militao, Ferland Mendy and Rodrygo to his squad.

Last season was the first time since 2015 Real Madrid failed to reach the Champions League final and given their investment, they must be considered one of the early favourites to win it this season.

Other early favourites to win the Champions League include Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern Munich. Tottenham Hotspur will also hope to feature having reached the final last season.
