European Royalty is on display in Group B as Real Madrid and Inter Milan facing against Borussia Mönchengladbach and Shakhtar Donetsk.
These will be important fixtures for Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane with both looking to shake off any previous shortcomings. Marco Rose at Gladbach, however, could be looking like surprise bet for to qualify.
Every season of the Champions League has a Group of Death. This year, Group F takes that mantle. Of the four teams involved, it is safe to assume which one’s journey finishes in December. Barcelona, Dortmund and Inter all have talent amongst their squads and could understandably take up any combination of the group’s final standing. Barcelona have Messi but no real structure. Dortmund have structure but are lacking in defence. Inter have the defence but maybe not the right kind. One thing is for sure, Slavia Prague are going to have an eventful few months.
