A er three straight years of Real Madrid, is it time for a change in Europe’s elite comp? It feels that way, par­tic­u­larly when you see Cris­tiano Ron­aldo in Ju­ven­tus’s black and white. Manch­ester City starts favourite, which is odd; Pep Guardi­ola’s out­fit has strug­gled to get as far as the semis. Paris St-Ger­main would hope to em­u­late the suc­cess of the French na­tional team, and it has Gigi Buf­fon at the back to com­ple­ment Ney­mar and Kylian Mbappe. And if Atletico Madrid, with An­toine Griez­mann in the fold, can re­cap­ture the form of 2014 and ’16, it will have the com­fort of know­ing next year’s fi­nal will be played at the Wanda Metropoli­tano. It all be­gins with the UEFA Cham­pi­ons League match day one (Sep 18-19) and two (Oct 2-3).
