We’re Telling You, It’s Bayern’s Year

You know what else makes the Champions League so brilliant? There are so many top teams involved, it’s impossible to predict the winner. The title is rarely successfully defended, and we have seven different winners from four countries in the past 10 years.

That said, we’re making a prediction: Bayern Munich. It’s Pep Guardiola’s last season in charge, and Bayern have the players and the pedigree to see this through. Barcelona, PSG and Real Madrid have looked good too.

One thought on “UEFA Champions League

  1. I am Telling You, It’s Barcelona’s Year. Fear the MSN. Visca el barca 😉 We will make history again by at least retaining the CL if not winning the treble back-to-back. Game’s ON!
