Champions League the Best Club Tournament in the World?

Posted on December 5, 2014 by


It is one of the most exciting competitions in the world today: the Champion’s League. It is back and better than ever, with all the best teams in the world facing off in a fantastic tournament. Last year, Real Madrid took the treble, and they are surely looking to obtain the same accomplishment again this season.

English club Chelsea is definitely looking to take the crown this year, as they are off to a flying, undefeated start in the Premier League. Diego Costa, who joined the club at the beginning of this season from Atletico Madrid in Spain, has had a fantastic goal-scoring start. He is one of the fastest Chelsea players to score his first ten goals.

“I think Real Madrid, Barcelona, or Bayern Munich will win it, but I would love to see Chelsea win it again. It’s tough to go up against competition like that with such good players,” junior Hunter Zagorski said.

Barcelona and the likes of Messi and Neymar will be looking to be much better this year than they were last year in the Champion’s League. Last season was a very “different” season for the Catalan club, winning no trophies. They were, however, the runners-up in La Liga to Atletico Madrid and runner up in the Copa Del Rey to Real Madrid off of Gareth’s Bale fabulous game winner.

Atletico Madrid had an incredible season last year, winning the League and being the runner-up in the Champions League. This was a great feat for the team, considering they are not usually considered one of the best teams in the world. Unfortunately, it does not look like they will accomplish the same awards after losing some key players over the transfer window.

“It was nice to see Atletico play so well last season, but I don’t think they will have the same success this season,” junior Greg Kambakis said.

It will surely be another intense competition with incredible teams throughout the tournament
