Welcome back to the Champions League! Last year’s campaign ended dramatically, disappointingly against the eventual champions. Can we do better this season?
It all starts here, with the first group game.
Your guess is as good as ours for what this lineup might actually look like. Back-three? Back-four? Three-man mid? Four? Five? Aubameyang’s definitely up top.
Here we go!
