The UEFA Champions League is the most exciting and prestigious yearly club competition in the entire world. The European tournament pits the top teams from around the continent against each other until there is only one club standing in May. Powerhouse teams such as Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Liverpool and Real Madrid regularly feature in the mammoth tournament.
To illustrate how popular the final it, the 2014/15’s Champions League final was viewed by an estimated 180 million viewers from over 200 countries worldwide compared to the Super Bowl, which generates a worldwide audience of 160 million.
Meanwhile, while some have labeled the Europa League a secondary tournament, there are still some very solid clubs to feature year in and year out of the competition. Teams such as Manchester United, Arsenal, Sevilla, Roma, Sporting CP, CSKA Moscow and others.
