The Champions League begins with its most exciting stage. After an intense group stage, which left out historic clubs like Barcelona, Atlético Madrid and Juventus, 16 teams are still in competition.
Real Madrid and Liverpool reissue the 2021-22 final, which was a 1-0 victory for the merengues thanks to the only goal from the Brazilian Vinicius Junior. Two seasons ago they also met in the quarterfinals, and the Spanish team emerged victorious, winning 3-1 in the first leg and drawing 0-0 at Anfield. In addition, they met in the 1981 final, with a 1-0 victory for the Reds, and in the 2018 final in kyiv, with a 3-1 victory for Madrid.
Paris Saint Germain, with Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar at the helm, will once again have a diabolical crossover with Bayern Munich, who completed a perfect group stage for the third time.
In 2020, the Bavarian team was proclaimed champion in Lisbon with a goal from the Frenchman Kingsley Coman against the French team, which last year fell at this point against Real Madrid and who wants once and for all to end his curse and end up crowning his project with the title.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, another of the main favorites, clearly led their group ahead of Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla, and now they will have to overcome RB Leipzig, a very young and daring team, who started unevenly, with two defeats, and he won a place in this round with solvency.
