With Kevin De Bruyne returning to full-fitness, Manchester City are the favourites to lift their maiden Champions League after two successive domestic league triumphs in England.
Holders Liverpool are expected to prioritise the Premier League crown after losing out by a point to Manchester City last season. The Reds of Merseyside are yet to win the Premier League since it’s inception in 1992.
The group stage this year will see some top-quality sides face each other. Some of the mouth-watering clashes in the group stage includes 2017-18 Champions Real Madrid vs French Champions PSG, German Champions Bayern Munich vs runners-up of last year Tottenham Hotspur, Juventus vs Atletico and Barcelona vs Dortmund.
