Champions League Group B Prediction
Moving onto Group B where things are a little more open than the previous group, but only by so much. Let’s see who will advance.
Group B: FC Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur, PSV, Inter Milan
FC Barcelona are coming into a season they’re going to held under a bigger microscope. After a humiliating elimination by Roma, Messi and Co. need a boost. They’re sporting a strong squad and all around Barcelona are the favorite to win the group but it’s not safe to completely hand over the top spot to the defending La Liga champions.
The Spurs can win this group. Tottenham have shown a great resilience without having to dip into the transfer window to prove their dominance. They’re bringing in the same squad with slight changes to this season’s competition. They have arguably one of the best managers in the game in Mauricio Pottchetino and possibly the best English strike pair in Harry Kane and Dele Alli. It’ll be a fight between Barca and the Spurs.
Believe it or not, PSV aren’t all that bad. They’re a good Dutch club and will manage to give the previously mentioned clubs something to worry about. This isn’t saying they’ll secure second or top spot but they won’t make so easy not aren’t they unwilling to be spoilers come the fifth or sixth fixture depending on schedule.
Inter Milan are another PSV in this case. Good Italian club with potential to be spoilers and a club to make it a difficult path. They won’t secure second or first however and it is a shame, they’re a great name with a great history.
Stay tuned for the next group.
