He Real Madrid You already know the teams you will face in the group stage of the Champions League 2020/2021. Those of Zinedine Zidane will have to overcome in this first phase Shakhtar Donetsk, to Inter Milan and to Borussia Monchengladbach, which together with the meringues make up the B Group, to earn a spot in the final rounds of the top continental competition. The first day of this new edition is scheduled for Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 October.
The draw became more complicated as the balls came out for the whites. After Shakhtar appeared in pot 2, they hit the big rock in pot 3. The Italian team will threaten the Whites’ classification after a great Europa League and to strengthen themselves in the last transfer market with Achraf hakimi. The same happened with Pot 4 when one of the most difficult rivals emerged. The Germans will also try to make the group stage difficult.
The rest of the days are established so that the second is between 27 and 28, the third passes to November between 3 and 4, the fourth between 24 and 25, the fifth already in December between 1 and 2 and the sixth and last on 8 and 9. In addition, the great news that has been announced UEFA is that in these meetings there may be a maximum of 30 percent of the public in the stands, depending on whether this is approved by the local authorities, a matter that in Spain is far from happening.
Zidane’s men want to redo the elimination in the round of 16 against the Manchester City. The last two seasons have involved eliminations (against the Ajax two years ago) in the same round and the objective is to remove the ghost of that phase that for so long was a tremendous slab. A priori, the whites should overcome this group stage although it will not be a bed of roses.
The threat from the Brazilians is the great complication that Shakhtar Donetsk will present. The Ukrainian team appears one more year in the maximum continental competition with the aim of passing the group stage and being the cover. A complicated exit to Kiev in which the whites will meet again with the stadium where they won their last Champions League against Liverpool.
More complicated will be the two games against Inter Milan. Those of Antonio Conte have been strengthened very well for this new season and will Lautaro Martinez Y Romelu lukaku its greatest danger. Although they lost to him Seville the Europa League, the potential of this team invites us to think that they will be two level duels.
Pot 4 was holding a poisoned gift. The Germans from Borussia Monchengladbach will have several incentives to think that they will not be easy matches. With fast forward like Marcus thuram, Breel Plunger and Ibrahima Traore they will make the white defense have to work especially hard. Although they are the weakest a priori, they may surprise.
