Hello Rank Squad!
Club football is back with a bang, and so is the return of the Champions League, which will get to its quarter final stage (or as Sam calls it, ‘the best bit in football’) next week. We wanted to get the jump on it, looking at each team and ranking them in likelihood of them winning the competition this year – will it be Manchester City, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Napoli, Milan, Inter, Bayern Munich or Benfica that lifts that famous trophy at the start of June?
It’s not the only big European tournament going though – Jack takes us on a quick pitstop of the Europa and Conference League final 8s as well, although it’s only his top three to win each of them (and a wildcard to keep an eye on!)
There’s a Melon and Shoutout of the Week, returned to full glory this time round, and Sam’s Gibberish is provided by his wonderful, long-suffering wife Rach, who gives us her take on the UCL 8-1 ranking.
