Champions League trekking groepsfase 2019-20

By Chris Dinsdale

August 29, 2019 - Het nieuwe Europese Champions League-seizoen start op 17 september en mondtuit met de finale in het Turkse Atatürk Olympisch Stadion op 30 mei 2020. Dit wordt de tweede keer dat Istanbul de locatie van de finale is, nadat Liverpool in 2005 op fameuze wijze AC Milan versloeg.

The UEFA Champions League is contested by the highest ranked teams of the strongest UEFA national associations. It is the top club competition in European football and one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world.

The Champions League final is the most watched annual sporting event worldwide. The final of the 2012-13 tournament had the highest TV ratings to date, drawing 360 million television viewers. It was played at Wembley Stadium in London, England, where Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund in the first all-German Champions League final.

Liverpool are the defending champions. They defeated English rivals Tottenham Hotspur in last season’s final to win the title for the sixth time.
