Who will be crowned the next champions of Europe? For now that remains a million dollar question following the surprises and comebacks last term. The 2018/19 UCL season was one of the most thrilling despite the anti-climax with Liverpool and Spurs.
The off-season has been eventful as several clubs are looking to strengthen ahead of next season. There has been a lot of movement of players across board. The arrival of Ndombele to Tottenham,Rodriguez to Man City and impending arrival of Maguire at Manchester United shows that the top 6 mean business.
Manchester City remain the biggest favourites. Manager Pep Guardiola has built a team that is feared across the country. Boasting of the best midfield in the league, Man City are a sure bet to make the top 4 places.

Germany have the opportunity to secure a second-straight win in the Euro 2020 qualifiers when they face Belarus on the road. Joachim Loew’s side had a forgettable experience at the 2018 World Cup where they failed to qualify beyond the group stage and that caused plenty of embarrassment for a team, who are used to competing on the busy end of major tournaments.
The misery was further extended at the Nations League where they failed to win a single game against France and Netherlands and this meant that they were confined to relegation to League B. Despite this, they have found a renewed sense of energy for the European qualifiers and that was visible in their opening game where they avenged their defeat to the Netherlands with a 3-2 scoreline on the road.
As such, the former World Cup champions appeared to be headed in the positive direction with a younger crop of players and they have a good chance to enhance their Euro 2020 qualification prospects by getting the better of Belarus on the road. The Germans had a testing challenge in Holland where they conceded twice during the opener but we are fancying them to keep a clean sheet against Belarus, considering the Dutch themselves managed to secure a comfortable 4-0 triumph against them in Rotherham.
The loss to the Dutch was followed by another defeat to Northern Ireland and Belarus’ prospects of making Euro 2020 appear a distant dream at the moment, unless they can make a stunning turnaround. We are anticipating Germany to make a statement with another away triumph and that should put them in control of their qualifying section ahead of their next encounter against Estonia at home.

The agent of Denis Suarez has confirmed that Napoli are one of the clubs, who have expressed an interest in signing the midfielder during this summer’s transfer window. The Spain international joined the Gunners on a short-term loan from Barcelona in January but he has since struggled to settle with 95 minutes of playing time across six appearances.
Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss, agent Felix Guende has revealed that the midfielder is currently carrying a groin injury which has kept him out of contention at the north London side. He added that Napoli have indeed expressed an interest in the former Manchester City graduate but no conclusion regarding the same will be made until the summer.
“He has two years left at Barcelona. This year in England hasn’t been his best. He’s played little and hasn’t been able to find a rhythm. At the moment, he’s injured. He has muscle fatigue and an injury. We’re awaiting the results from the exams. Napoli? The interest is always appreciated, being a team that has been fighting for the top positions for years. It’s a bit soon to talk about the transfer window, but we aren’t excluding anything,” he said.
Suarez has barely featured under the guidance of Unai Emery this year and there have already been mentions that he has proved a flop at the north London club. Nonetheless, the club have the option to sign him permanently for £18m during the summer and it remains to be seen whether Emery will give the green light towards the move.
Arsenal are currently fourth in the Premier League table at the current point of time, and they are assured of returning to the Champions League, provided they win the remaining games of the season. They can reach the same objective by winning the Europa League, where Emery has a fantastic history in the past. The Spaniard won the competition on three straight occasions with Sevilla between 2014 and 2016.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has said that the players need to show an improvement on the recent performance against West Ham United in the Premier League. The Reds produced a lacklustre showing against the Hammers at Old Trafford on Saturday and they were eventually lucky to scrape through a 2-1 win after receiving a couple of penalties in their favour.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised the performance of Marcus Rashford during the weekend’s 0-0 league draw against Liverpool. The England international had sustained an ankle problem within the opening minute of the game but he managed to keep going for the entire 90 minutes with three other teammates suffering hamstring injuries during the first half itself.
