OK, so if you’ve ever read any of our stuff before, you know that we’re far from Nostradamus when it comes to this whole guessing thing, but you have to at least give us some cred for taking a stab at itâ€”especially publicly.
But just because we’ve been pretty piss-poor in the past doesn’t mean that we’re ready to wave the white flag and just stop doing it.
That’s why we’re giving you our six teams who we think have a legit chance to win the Champions League this season.
With games starting this week, we’re a long way away from determining a champ, but these are the teams who should have the best chance at conquering European club soccer.
6. Paris Saint-Germain
Thanks to the signing of David Beckham and Zlatan Ibrahimovic last year, PSG has suddenly become one of the sexiest, trendier picks to compete for the Euro title.
Though Becks isn’t with the club anymore, his presence was enough to draw attention to the Parisian team.
Don’t sell these guys short even on their own though, as they have Edinson Cavani to pair up front with Zlatan to put pressure on defenders, and with Thiago Silva in the central defense, they could make some noise.
It’ll take a perfect tournament for them to get to the Finals, but they aren’t short on talent to get there.
