European football’s governing body EUFA have unveiled their latest intro for this seasons Champions League.
This new ‘intro’ is just as flashy as before and displays highlight moments from the 2017/18 competition.
Of course, it would be no Champions League intro without that signature anthem which features throughout. Written by English composer Tony Britten in 1992 it is sure to raise goosebumps in pubs all around the UK this season.
In the clip, we see dazzling moments of skill from the competition’s stars, including Mo Salah, Lionel Messi, and Neymar. We also see a beautiful volley from Edin Džeko andthatbicycle-kick from Cristiano Ronaldo.
This seasons final saw Liverpool take on holders Real Madrid at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Ukraine. The game was level until Welshman Gareth Bale added a spectacular effort to put the Spanish powerhouse in front, he would then add his second of the night in the 83rdminute to secure Madrid’s third consecutive title.
Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius was heavily criticised by fans and the media for two serious blunders, however, he was later diagnosed to be playing on with a concussion.
The qualification rounds for the 2018/19 tournament are well underway, with the group stage draw on the 30thof August and beginning on the 18th of September.
Next seasons final will take place at the Wanda Metropolitano, home of Atlético Madrid, on the 1stof June 2019.
Who will reach the Champions League final this time around?
Let us know in the comments.
