    This will be a fun weekend. On Friday, Kylian Mbappe and Monaco host Toulouse which marks the start of the season in France. Two time European Champions Nottingham Forest welcome newly promoted Millwall to The City Ground. Along with that match, newly relegated Sunderland host Derby marking the start of the second-tier football season in England.

    From yesterday...

    Nottingham Forest beat Millwall in their opener. Interestingly enough, after reading some post-match reports, it was newly promoted Millwall who were the better side and had their changes to not only equalizer, but win the match. Derby County just nearly held on to a 1-1 draw against newly relegated side Sunderland. Over in the in French first division reining champions Monaco came back and beat Toulouse 3-2. The big news from that match was Kylian Mbappe limped off injured, but their manager said he should be back in a matter of days.

    EPL: Chelsea down 0-3 at the half at home against Burnley. Inauspicious start for the 2016 champions.

    Man U is starting out on fire. Didn't like the Lukaku signing at the beginning but he's looked totally different for the Red Devils.

    Teams have roughly two more days to strike a deal or two and I'm sure we'll see plenty. Here's some noteworthy signing that have gone through over the last week...

    8/22: Wesley Hoedt: Lazio -> Southampton (€16.4m) ... With VvD refusing to train, the Saints needed another CB.
    8/23: Davinson Sanchez: Ajax -> Spurs (€40m) ... Prefect fit at Spurs. Great at playing from the back
    8/23: Sam Clucas - Hull City -> Swansea (€16.3m) ... Had a strong debut in a Swans shirt this past weekend.
    8/25: Robert Snodgrass - West Ham -> Aston Villa (Loan) ... Very surprised at this one.
    8/25: Oliver Burke - Leipzig -> West Brom (€15.2m) ... Young winger who loves the ball at his feet.
    8/27: Robert Green - Leeds -> Huddersfield (Free) ... The former England no. 1 is back in the EPL
    8/29: Kevin Wimmer - Spurs -> Stoke City (€19.4m) ... Wimmer was stuck on the bench at Spurs. He should get some minutes at the Britannia which is important during a World Cup year.

    The UEFA Champions league is won by “one of” the best teams in Europe. A team’s quality is determined by the strength of lineup, the depth in the team. So, the best teams are the ones with a lot of quality both in their starting line-up and their bench. So, we can narrow the most possible UCL winners to this list:

    1.Real Madrid: How can we write off Madrid giants when history proves they do well in knockout stages? With Ronaldo’s scintillating UCL form with an experienced squad in depth can surely challenge anyone even when they are out of form. The team are Specialists in the Champions league, they have winners/world class players in the team such as Marcelo, Kroos, Carvajal, Modric, Ronaldo, Ramos and Bale. Along with a fantastic bench with options in talented youngsters like Kovacic, Vasquez, Ceballos, Asensio, Akimi, Theo Hernandez and the like. Defending champions coached by a really good coach in Zidane and albeit currently going through a rough patch, cannot be written off.

    2.Manchester City: As a United fan I will be the most hurt seeing City winning a UCL. But experienced Pep with an in-form crew can go all the way if they keep up this form. With players like KDB, Silva who create from every blade of grass on the pitch, clinical front men like Jesus and Aguero and pacy dribblers of the ball like Sane and Sterling supported by attacking fullbacks like Mendy, who’s growing to be the one of the best left backs in recent times and walker, shielded by one of the best Perm defenders last season in Otamendi and highly talented ball playing defenders like John Stones playing in front of a well performing build up involving goalie like Ederson, City have been playing the best football ,are top of the Premier League and therefore remain strong contenders for UCL, especially with a good bench with reinvigorated fullbacks in Danilo an versatile players like Delph, strong defensive mid options like Fernandinho, talent like Bernardo Silva and experience in the form of Yaya Toure, coached by the legendary Pep Guardiola, they cannot be overlooked.


    3.Paris Saint Germain: The big money investment done by Qatari owners has been paying off with a busy summer transfer window. They have been scoring for fun this season especially in UCL conceding none. The expensive trio of Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe are on top form with a good defensive line is highly attractive. Their midfield of Draxler, Verratti and Rabiot, an emerging attacking fullback in Kurzawa, a Brazilian center back duo of Marquinhos and Silva backed up by a rising star in Kimpembe, shielding a highly talented Areola backed up by an excellent Kevin Trapp leads the Ligue 1 and recently hammered Bayern Munich albeit the latter being troubled, which is a great sign that this could be their season.

    4.Barcelona: The only thing right about Barcelona this season is Messi. He has been creating and scoring for fun in a much central role. But can they go all the way? Not until Suarez finds his goal scoring touch. There are number of issues to be attended after the departure of Neymar and aging Iniesta in coming January window for Valverde to challenge in Europe.

    5.Bayern Munich: Despite an early sacking and the lack of depth in the striker and the winger position, Been under Jupp look like a Champions league side once more in the little time he has coached. By Jan or Feb, this squad could retain its former charm if its injury troubles get over. The most distinguished midfield in Europe comprising of Rudy, Martinez, Thiago, James, Coman, Muller, tolisso and Vidal; led by a world class Lewandowski with lots of center back options in Sule, Hummels and Boateng, arguably best fullback in the world right now in Kimmich and a reinvigorated Alaba, this squad is still high and mighty. Coman and James are finding their best form under Jupp and it's only a matter of time before this squad starts kicking it.

    6.Juventus: Last year’s finalists has been a bit off track this season. Losing convincingly to Barca in group stage and sitting 3rd behind Inter and Napoli in Serie A gives more options to work on for Allegri and co.
