For the first round of the Champions League pools, Liverpool will host AC Milan on Wednesday evening. Jurgen Klopp displays unusual fear.
Group B of the group stages of the Champions League is of rare difficulty. The Reds tactician has understood this and according to a recent statement relayed by James Pearce, Jürgen Klopp displays both a certain excitement at the idea of meeting very good teams, but also an astonishing fear. The German coach is even talking about the toughest group since joining the Mersey club in 2015.
« It’s the strongest group we’ve had since I’ve been in Liverpool. This will take two very good football teams away from the round of 16. This group will be exciting from the first to the last second. This is exactly what we want.«
The group of death?
Certainly, with Liverpool, the Milan AC, Atlético de Madrid and FC Porto, Group B presents itself as one of the most difficult in this new Champions League. However, this group is not an exception either since this year, shocks are frequent in many groups. Starting with group A, made up of PSG, from Manchester United, of RB Leipzig and of Bruges.
At last, we also find duels worthy of finals in group E with Barça and Bayern, who will compete for the 3 points this Tuesday evening, and in Group D with Real and Inter Milan. Although Paris Saint-Germain are considered by the various European media as the favorites of the competition, the Parisians will have to face the best clubs to win the precious sesame.
