Last season, the ‘citizen’ were just a few minutes away from passing Real Madrid, for the second consecutive year, to the Champions League final. But that was already forgotten and with the hiring of Erling Haaland, the group led by Pep Guardiola makes their favoritism felt to win the trophy.
And if we add to the arrival of the Norwegian the presence of the regulars; Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez or Rúben Dias, to name a few, the truth is that it is a luxury squad, and it would be a complete surprise, not to say catastrophe, not to see this team in the final stages.
Paris Saint Germain
The Champions League is undoubtedly the greatest ambition and obsession of the Parisian team. A cup that has been elusive for several years now, that after so many millionaire signings there are few excuses left on the table to justify so many consecutive failures.
At the end of last season, much was said about the possible departure of French striker Kylian Mbappe, but the truth is that he ended up renewing with Paris Saint-Germain, and that allows us to see him on the pitch for another season alongside Neymar Jr. and LionelMessi. Few teams can match this level of individuality, but we’ll see if they are capable of playing as a team and reaching the top.

Those led by Nagelsmann will seek to stand up in Europe, they have a high-quality squad, and it is undoubtedly a team to respect and consider to be the next champion of this competition.
After a year for oblivion being relegated to play the Europa League for not qualifying in their Champions group, the Catalans have made a great investment by signing: Robert Lewandoski (Bayern), Jules Koundé (Sevilla), Raphina (Leeds United ), Frenkie Kessié (free from Milan), Andreas Christensen (free from Chelsea), Héctor Bellerín (Arsenal) and Marcos Alonso (Chelsea).
Time will tell if the ‘culés’ will be able to be unbeatable in Europe again, at the moment it is undeniable that they have a great squad and that those led by Xavi Hernández have high chances of being one of the champions of this edition of the tournament.
