The best club competition in the world, the Champions, starts this Tuesday amid the global uncertainty due to the coronavirus, with the pandemic conditioning its calendar and without an audience in the vast majority of stadiums. But even with everything, the continental tournament is presented, one more year, most exciting and open, with many candidates to lift the Orejona in a final that will be, at least in theory, on May 29, 2021 in Istanbul.

After dominating the Champions League for five consecutive editions (four titles from Real Madrid and one from Barça between 2014 and 2018), Spanish football has had two disappointing campaignsespecially the last one, in which no league team passed the quarterfinals final. Despite the doubts of the Madridistas and the Blaugranas, the objective of both is none other than to regain the continental throne, while both Atlético and Sevilla are more than serious alternatives with two solid projects that do not renounce anything at all.

But Spaniards are not the big favorites, condition that falls on the Bayern Munich, which he crushed in the last edition and wants to consolidate his hegemony in this one. PSG, Juventus, Liverpool and Manchester City They are the great alternatives to the Germans, while the new projects from Inter and Chelsea look very good.

Of the rest of the 24 teams, RB Leipzig aspires to repeat its great participation of last season (semifinalist), and Borussia Dortmund, Manchester United, Ajax, Porto, Atalanta, Marseille and Lazio can give more than a scare to the big favorites . Without a doubt, an exciting Champions League.
