The biggest factory there is, the Champions League, kicks off how official this week. There are not a number of fascinating teams in the current season, 2021/22, the sun after one of the global shuttle windows we have seen in the world of football.
Paris Saint-Germain arrives at this window after rebuilding the operation and bringing in Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donaroma, Ashraf Hakimi, Georginio Vinaldom and Leo Parties. Manchester United have replaced a number of significant players in the squad such as Rafael Varane, Gideon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo, and European champions Chelsea have also been renewed at Romulo Lukaku and Seoul.
Quite a few players on this honorable list have especially been accepted by others for groups of people, under the influence of the Euro which would have led to the postponement of the transfer window. There are a lot of experienced players here, the prominent Ramos and Ronaldo and the name, who have switched teams. Question is how long will it take for these teams to learn to play together, and does it not give an advantage to other teams.
A family that passed we saw for example Real Madrid, without purchasing seats and with a big blow of injuries, manages to reach the semi-finals (after passing Liverpool and Atalanta). It existed not only in the talent of the Blancos, but in the experience of Luca Modric, Karim Benzema and Tony Cross who have won the Champions League 3 times in a row.
Liverpool ourselves managed to reach the quarter-finals after three brakes were injured and Bayern Munich surprised well without Robert Lewandowski, after which he was injured against Andorra and fatally hit the second chance which was considered a favorite.
This teammate, special in a season where the crowd returns to the pitches and the advantage of the beasts will be added once again, may be critical. Chelsea who won the Champions League in 2021 did so with a number of roster players who won the Europa League in 2019, their rival in the Manchester City final climbs slowly and gradually and progresses step by step.
Therefore, teams that have not made human acquisitions in preparation for the Champions League should not be underestimated. Even if Real Madrid of all kinds, Bayern Munich or Atletico Madrid (which retained the nucleus from last year and added a type of player who played for years on the team, Antoine Griezmann), seem less threatening than PSG or United, they work much more as one team. In knockout tournaments the pressure goes up, and it’s much easier for a team that was already in the same pressure cooker and came out on top as the winner. Especially when it’s in front of tens of thousands of fans on Europe’s big pitches.
