Champions League Group A – Preview

Group A alone is one of the most interesting groups of the new Champions League season, as we find the title favourite here. For a bet on FC Bayern Munich you currently get 5.50 odds. Atletico Madrid and the Bavarians are already clear favourites.

FC Bayern München1.35
Atletico Madrid4.00
Red Bull Salzburg12.00
Lokomotiv Moskau35.00

To give you an overview of Group A of the Champions League Season 20/21 and to support your draft for the €250,000 CL Season Game on Fanteam, we present the teams in detail.

Bayern Munich:

Last season’s defending champion is rightly a top favourite to win again this year. According to the bookies, only Atletico Madrid can be dangerous for the Bavarians in the group stage. The record of the last 15 matches played by the reigning German champion is impressive: 14 – 0 – 1

The following players are currently scheduled for the standard situations:

CornersKimmich (7.5m)
Free kicksAlaba (6m), Lewandowski (13.5m)
PenaltiesLewandowski (13.5m)

As the €250,000 CL tournament on Fanteam only allows for three players per team, we have to make a decision. Our stack of the German Champion is a “vertical stack” consisting of Davies (7.0m), who is listed as defender, midfielder Müller (9.0m) and of course Lewandowski (13.5m).

Atletico Madrid:

Atletico Madrid, best known for their defensive style of play, have aggressively upgraded with the signing of Luis Suarez. Atletico is once again considered a title contender, with the focus clearly on Jan Oblak and Luis Suarez, who are definitely among the best in their respective positions.

CornersSaul Niguez(7m)
Free kicksSuarez(8.5m), Koke(7.5m), Trippier(6m)
PenaltiesSuarez(8.5m)

RB Salzburg:

RB Salzburg, the Austrian champion has caught a very ungrateful group. After several failures with the Champions League, RB was able to fight his way through the qualification. The main focus is on Szoboszlai who is setting the pace.

CornersSzoboszlai (5.0 Mio)
Free kicksSzoboszlai (5.0 Mio, Junuzovic (4.0 Mio)
PenaltiesSzoboszlai (5.0 Mio

Locomotive Moscow:

Locomotive Moscow, especially known by the Miranchuk brothers, who have been separated this season. One of the brothers joined Atalanta, Bergamo. Lokomotiv is very difficult to classify, that is why the Russian Club is so unpredictable. The key player will be the remaining Miranchuk, who practically takes over all the roles on the field.

CornersMiranchuk (4.5 Mio)
Free kicksMiranchuk (4.5 Mio)
PenaltiesMiranchuk (4.5 Mio), Rybus (4.5 Mio)

Conclusion:

These are my favourites from group A for the upcoming Champions League season. To sum up, Salzburg has the much more interesting individual players, with Szoboszlai you have a very present 10 player, who can be found everywhere on the field. With Daka, Salzburg also has a very big storm talent, who scores well in the Austrian Bundesliga. There is not much to add to the rest, Lewandowski will certainly play a big role in the Champions League again.
