Champions League Group Analysis: Group B

This group was always only going to be about two teams, Bayern Munich and PSG. All eyes are on PSG though(not only for FFP) as new signings Neymar and Mbappe will be seen playing together. Celtic and Anderlect are almost already competing for 3rd place even before the tournament has begun. Its not that they are very weak clubs, Bayern and PSG are just the bigger of the elite clubs in Europe.

These two have costed PSG a lot, can they deliver on their price tags on the biggest stage of all?

Celtic do have players like Scott Brown, Moussa Dembele and Scott Sinclair who could trouble oppositions. Their games at Celtic park will be tricky ones even for the big boys(Barcelona remember). They currently sit 2nd in the Scottish Premiership and had gone unbeaten last season with a hungry manager. This group may be a level above their capability but their stock is certainly on the rise.

Moussa Dembele has a chance to show what he’s about against Europe’s big boys

Anderlect, on the other hand currently sit 11th in the Belgian league having won only 1 of their first 5 matches. While their chances of qualifying are bleak at best, they have a young squad that can show a spirited performance against the big boys.

It may be all good at PSG at the moment but this man has questions to answer about PSG’s financial dealings

Onto the big boys, PSG seem like they finally have the pieces together for a sustained CL challenge, even though their FFP compliance problems are just at their infancy, no one can doubt the ability in that squad. Neymar, Veratti, Mbappe, Thaigo Silva, etc all are top notch and have to prove that they are ready to be genuinely considered in the likes of Madrid, Barcelona and Munich.

Can Bayern Munich’s showmen put on a show against PSG?

Bayern, on the other hand are managed by arguably the best manager in world football, Carlo Ancelotti. He has won the domestic leagues in England, Italy, Germany and Spain. While one might say that their top players are ageing, having the likes of Neuer, Boateng, Hummels, Vidal, Robben and Lewandowski is never a bad omen. The addition of James Rodriguez just adds to the list of superstars at their disposal.

His move may not have been the talk of the town but his skills can change that

The majority of the footballing community believe that this group is a two team battle for top spot. But who will claim that top spot? only time will tell.

Meet Varun, being a 21 year old Mumbaikar his love for football began at one of Mumbai's most famous grounds, Priyadarshini Park. Ever since he watched Thierry Henry terrorize English League defences it's only been about one club for him, the famous red and white of the Arsenal. But it's not just football that he likes, a thorough sports fan he is following Football, F1, Cricket, Basketball, Tennis, Baseball and American Football. Like most young Arsenal fans, he too looked up to Arsene Wenger as one of the greatest managers of our time. Being a CA Student may have taken much of his time but you have to make time for some things and making time to watch the boys in red and white go out and put on a show is one of his favorite ways to de-stress from his studies. He is absolutely obsessed with FIFA statistics, so if you ever want to know exactly where the differences are between Ronaldo and Messi on FIFA, he is your go to guy. Although he does predominantly watch the English League, never underestimate his knowledge in any other foreign leagues, he loves understanding market trends which is why even though there is no football in July, it is one of his favorite months of the year to analyze price and transfer trends.
