‘Angry’ Ronaldo Reacts To Modric Beating Him To Uefa Player Award

The Champions League is now dominated more than ever before by clubs from the continent's biggest domestic leagues.

These days, no-one even mentions who the winners faced before Christmas.

Last season, Madrid completed three in a row by seeing off Liverpool in the final and Ronaldo went on to insist the four English Premier League clubs are capable of causing an upset.

They can now dedicate their considerable resources to the league and Carabao Cup during September and October, with qualification for the UCL knockout stages virtually assured.

Mendes said that not giving Ronaldo the award is "ridiculous" as he not only scored 15 goals but also took the Real Madrid to the Champions League glory. Manchester city holds the ball a lot, attacks a lot and scores a lot. Can anyone stop them?

"Real Madrid due to their history and tradition". We're still a long way off that.




While those sides will be favourites to progress to the last 16 from Group H, they will have to be wary of Valencia, with the Spaniards returning to the group stage for the first time in three years.

An Espanyol legend like Mauricio Pochettino taking on Barcelona with Spurs and Liverpool facing the re-invented PSG are deliciously glamorous games, but should not in any way be decisive ones. Their main problem is finding any kind of form at all.

When are the group stage match days?

So, will it be Manchester United 2018-19?

Regarding the draw itself, some interesting match-ups were made, particularly in Group H. Italian champions Juventus will meet with Manchester United, Ronaldo making his return to the Old Trafford. "I think that Shakhtar's chances, "Lyon" and "Hoffenheim" second place is absolutely equal".

As ever, it is actually some of the groups involving the clubs below their tier that offer the most effervescent excitement of this stage of the competition. Three more former European champions Bayern Munich, Benfica, Ajax are together with underdog AEK Athens in Group E. Liverpool, the runner-up last season, was the toughest third-seeded team and landed with Paris Saint-Germain, Napoli, and Red Star Belgrade in Group C.

They will all be hoping to avoid the biggest names in Pot 1, with Russian champions Lokomotiv Moscow the least imposing name of all the top seeds.
