BERLIN, Germany (AP) — The Champions League group stage begins on Tuesday with a meeting between traditional powers Barcelona and Bayern Munich, but after a summer of eye-catching moves, big-spending upstarts elsewhere are the title favorites this season.
With the additions of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, Italy's European Championship-winning goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, Netherlands midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, and wing backs Achraf Hakimi and Nuno Mendes — the latter arguably the most exciting player in Portugal last season — Paris Saint-Germain has bolstered its ranks.
PSG, supported by Qatar Sports Investment since 2011, reached the Champions League semifinals last season and the final the year before but has never won the competition.
Perhaps it's no surprise that the club's impressive recruitment drive coincides with the club's goal of winning Europe's top club championship before hosting the World Cup next year in Qatar.
PSG will up their campaign on Wednesday against Club Brugge in Group A, where Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappé might play together for the first time, giving the Belgian champion a terrifying attacking squad to contend with. Messi warmed up for the game by scoring a hat trick in World Cup qualifying for Argentina.
PSG turned down a $188 million bid from Real Madrid for Mbappé, despite the fact that he is free to go without paying a transfer fee when his contract expires next year.
