The Champions League is back and Europe’s premier club competition is shaping up to be more hotly contested than ever in 2018/19.

Current holders Real Madrid have won an unprecedented three on the bounce, and four of the last five, but their Champions League monopoly is under serious threat from seven other top contenders.

Among them, Juventus have strengthened by poaching the competition’s all-time leading scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo, from Madrid, while Lionel Messi has vowed Barcelona will prioritise the Champions League this season.

Meanwhile, Premier League champions Manchester City are favourites and Liverpool, having reached the final last year and adding Naby Keïta, Fabinho and Alisson since, cannot be discounted.

In the above video, we run through the eight sides set to make a strong push for the Champions League this season.
