  1. As much as hate to say it, PSG is looking dangerous and like last few years there is no team that has stood out from the rest which makes this years Champions league trophy even more open! However, they have finished second, that means they will again play a big club in the second round. Hopefully City or Arsenal. These two should be able to clip Mbappe’s wings!
