It's just too early for us to be making prediction who Champions League winner would be. Besides, the round of matches for the group stage is yet to be completed. We can't even tell the teams that are going to make it out of the group stage, that are going to feature in the round of sixteen. I think until we see the performances of teams in the round of sixteen plus semis, as we usually do, that's when we can start talking about the team that would win the prestigious UCL trophy.
It is obvious this time around the defending champion, Real Madrid, are not going to find easy, because they are not even doing well presently in the competition. But that doesn't mean they can't wow us like they've done in the past three seasons once they are out of the group stage.
Additionally, teams like Manchaster City might just be the team to beat this time around due to their current form. Apparently, we can't rule out teams such as Juventus, Barcelona, Roma, PSG, because of the crop of talents they have in their teams.
