The UEFA Champions League is in full swing on SuperSport so we're taking a look at our UCL title hopefuls.
As defending champions, Los Blancos are big title contenders. Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane will be aiming to win the club’s 13th Champions League title.

Last season’s runner-ups come into the 63rd season with the intention of going all the way and lifting the trophy at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, which will host the final.
Juve begins the new season against the team they defeated in last season’s competition Barcelona. The showdown will broadcast Tuesday 12 September on SuperSport 6 (DStv Channel 206) and on DStv Now at 20:40
Neymar’s move to PSG has left Barcelona extremely vulnerable. However, they have a strong squad of players who are more than capable of taking them all the way.
Bundesliga 2016/17 champions, Bayern Munich last won the Champions League in the 2012/13 season. Bayern won the Bundesliga in emphatic fashion, they got knocked out by Atletico Marid in the UCL semis last season.
Bayern Munich will be looking to start the season with a strong performance when they face Anderlecht on Tuesday 12 September on SS8 (DStv Channel 208) and on DStv Now at 20:40
The Blues bowed out in the Round of 16 stages last season after they squandered a 5-3 first-leg lead against Monaco only to be defeated 3-1 in the return leg. Manchester City is in Group B against Feyenoord, Napoli and Shakhtar Donetsk. We predict they will once again reach the Round of 16 stage and maybe pull off a few upsets. After all, anything is possible in football.
