Reasonable Candidates to Win the 2019/2020 Champions League

The Champions League is always a big thing just as the question who will be the Champions League winner in the end. Following the round of 16 fixtures of Champions League at the end of this month, it is pretty fair to say that there are only few of the 16 teams remaining that could reasonably win the tournament. Despite the fact that things can still happen along the way, some of those might be completely surprising, there will only be few teams favored by many to win the title in the end. These are some of the 16 teams that could possibly be there at the final of Champions League on May 30th.

Currently on its rise within the domestic league of England, Liverpool has become one of the favorites to secure Champions League title this season. Obviously, that is due to the fact that Liverpool was the winner of last season. The year before that, Liverpool was the runner up of the tournament. Despite the odds that making into the finals of UCL three times in a row is really difficult, even more difficult to win it. Although Real Madrid has done it quite recently that makes it pretty much possible especially for the current version of Liverpool.

Bayern Munich is another favorite to eventually win the Champions League this season. The last victory for the club in Champions League was in the 2012/2013 season in which the year before Chelsea defeated Bayern Munich and makes it finish as the runner up. Since then Bayern Munich seems to be lost within the competition of Champions League. Today, alongside its fierce battle for the Bundesliga title with RB Leipzig, it is reasonable to say that the team is ready to be back to the biggest stage of European football championship as the Champions League winner.

The year of 2014/2015 was the last time Barcelona won the Champions League title. Since then the club has never been in any serious contention regarding is Champions League journey. Yet in the league, Barcelona remains the supreme team by winning the last two seasons of La Liga. This season Barcelona remains at the top of the league standing with just another duel alongside Real Madrid. Following the possibility of Lionel Messi to leave the club as a free agent at the end of his season, Champions League victory is highly possible for the team at the moment.

Next on the list of the reasonable teams to win this season of Champions League is of course the rising star of Bundesliga, RB Leipzig. Officially the young club has won the half-season Bundesliga competition. Many people consider that this is the time to finally have a new winner of Bundesliga instead of Bayern Munich. Names like Marcel Sabitzer, Timo Werner, and Yussuf Poulsen make the team pretty aggressive, potent, and dynamic at the same time. Obviously, there is a huge chance that this pretty young team could deal with the all experienced teams within the round of 16 of the Champions League to win the tournament in the end.

Manchester City is definitely a team that could win Champions League this season as well. The team has just become the first $1 billion team in the world that makes it pretty reasonable to win the tournament. The squad is a complete one from one section to another to be able to create a powerful combination of play. As long as Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem, and Sergio Aguero are on fire it is pretty difficult to defeat Manchester City. With just that in mind, become this season Champions League winner seems to be possible for Manchester City.

10 Best Soccer Players in the World 2020

The soccer world has always amazed us with its magical show on the field and the players’ lifestyle. In this article, we have the 10 best soccer players in the world right now. Our ranks are based on the ability of each player. It is okay if you have different opinions about this but we still will show you our best 10 players in 2020 and maybe a few years from now.

#1 Lionel Messi – Barcelona FC

Lionel Messi can be touted as the number one best player in the world today. Many articles had mentioned his name for similar titles as well. The presence of Lionel Messi in the soccer world has made everyone like the Argentine. Do you know why? 

It is because he is the best at everything. If you have been watching him grow from time to time, you will notice that no one could run with the ball like Messi. During his career, he already scored 717 goals.

#2 Neymar – Paris Saint Germain

We should say that 2019 was not a memorable year for Neymar. He got injuries, poor form, suspensions, off-field issues, and ongoing transfer rumors. Even we can say that 2019 could be one of the worst years for him.

However, before those dramas were on the air, this Brazilian extremely talented footballer had changed the game. 

Neymar is terrifically skillful. His perceptive passer skill that is accompanied by the world-class finishing just made him much more accountable in the soccer world. As a young footballer, Neymar has plenty of time to become the world’s best like what he had shown during his time at Barcelona FC.

#3 N’Golo Kante – Chelsea FC

Some of you might be asking what he had done to deserve the number 3 best player in the world. Kante does not play like other football superstars. He has no terrific footwork nor scored in every match.

On the other hand, Kante does not act like a superstar as well. He drives a Mini Cooper, no partying, and no fancy clothes from designers. This is what makes him terrifyingly brilliant, on the other hand. 

He chases the ball relentlessly for the whole match, changing the game by an attacking midfielder, or standing in front of the back players. Kante has always added value to the team in a huge way.

#4 Virgil Van Dijk – Liverpool FC

We all agree that Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, and John Terry were the best defenders when it comes to Premier League history. Virgil Van Dijk is three players combined. Jamie Redknapp was giving the words for sure. Van Dijk has the physicality of Vidic, the brain of Ferdinand, and Terry’s heart.

#5 Kevin De Bruyne – Manchester City

Let’s think with an analogy. Rolls Royce Phantom is Kevin De Bruyne. He is classy, luxurious, and elegant yet holding a powerful engine light under the hood. He always plays so calmly and effortlessly yet delivers devastating effects. 

De Bruyne has an excellent passing range that cannot be compared to. When he infuses the acute awareness and sublime first touch, the game is in his hands. You might get a slight memory of Zinedine Zidane when watching Kevin De Bruyne on the field.

#6 Kylian Mbappe – Paris Saint Germain

Kylian Mbappe has collected tons of trophies and he is still 21 years old. Talking about the trophies, he has one World Cup, the Coupe de France, and three Ligue 1 titles to mention a few of what he got. During his career, he has scored 122 goals already. 

When Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi were at the same age, they did not score as many goals as Mbappe. Mbappe is the modern day’s greatest goal-scorer and football player.

#7 Paul Pogba – Manchester United

Paul Pogba played well in Juventus. However, he could not show impressive play in Manchester United. It might be caused by himself and how the former manager of his team failed to find the best interest of Pogba in the first place. Also, the distinct lack of quality at Old Trafford did not help as well. 

However, the best Pogba is when you see him playing for his country. The power, grace, and flair shown by him on the field just like how a true midfield general. When Pogba is happy, he gives the world-class you will admire.

#8 Eden Hazard – Real Madrid

Eden Hazard has excellent dribbling ability and only a few in the world that could put him to second. Over the last decade, Hazard has shown successful dribbles, especially during his years with Chelsea. 

Today, after he moved to La Liga, he still maintains his standards even though Messi is still one second higher than Hazard. In the previous season Hazard only played seven games due to his injury. We hope that after his recovery he will rise higher.

#9 Sadio Mane – Liverpool FC

Sadio Mane is another best player in the world today. He even got the nomination for the FIFA Best Awards in 2019. However, he could make the top three by the end of the season. Even Lionel Messi agrees that Mane has shown the best performance in 2019 especially for his team, Liverpool.

#10 Kalidou Koulibaly – SSC Napoli

According to rumors, almost all big clubs in Europe are interested to bring in Koulibaly away from his team right now. Manchester City and Manchester United wanted him so badly and Chelsea also did the same thing too. On the other hand, Pairs Saint Germain and Real Madrid were also ready to bring him to the team. 

Of course, they want Koulibaly so badly. He has shown a solid performance during his career in Napoli especially along 2019. He was also the best defender in the last season of Serie A.

So, these are our picks for the best football players in the world for 2020. Some of you might be wondering why Cristiano Ronaldo could not make it in the top 10 list. Well, everyone deserves to evolve and grow.
