In every season of the Champions League, African players whose teams qualify do their best. Here are some players to watch out for in this season’s Champions League.
Bayern Munich defeated Paris Saint Germain to win the 2019/2020 champions league trophy and will be eager to defend the trophy this season. But they will face competition from the likes of Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and other top teams in Europe.
However, the race will not be the only source of attraction, especially for several Africans who will be looking to see their players in action for this season’s Champions League. In this post, therefore, we take a look at the top African players who could make Africa proud in the Champions League this season.
Salah and Mane
Both players are undoubtedly top of the list of top African players /footballers in Europe currently. Their invaluable contribution helped Liverpool win the Champions League last two seasons while they broke their Premier League record by winning it after 30 years.
They have been drawn in Group D where they will face the talented sides of Ajax and Atalanta as well as Midtjylland, but they are expected to sail through regardless.
When African Players, Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah come up against Ajax in the group stages, they will likely face Ghana’s Kudus Mohammed. The young midfielder joined Ajax this season and has already impressed in his outings including winning a man of the match award.
Kudus Mohammed could build on his impressive life in Amsterdam and help Ajax qualify for the Round of 16 in what will be a difficult group, especially against Liverpool and Atalanta.
After sealing a move from Ajax to Chelsea last season, Moroccan international Hakim Ziyech will be expected to help Chelsea go a step further in this season’s Champions League.
The one time European Champions were eliminated by eventual winners Bayern Munich last season but have since brought in high profile players to help them achieve success this term.
Ziyech is expected to fill the right flank of the Chelsea attack which also has Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, and Kai Havertz.
This season’s Champions League will come with its own surprises. Keep visiting Fillabase.com and let’s keep the conversation around the league alive.
