As painful as it is to admit, Manchester United look set to win it again, nobody is matching their football in Europe at the moment (although still early on).
Their noisier rivals may think they've got a chance of doing something, but it's all untested waters for them as a club. They may battle on valiantly like Tottenham last season, but they'll not disturb the final.
Wouldn't be surprised to see Real in the final this time, either. They were a hell of a lot more assured last season and had they not faced the best team of our generation in the Semi's, could've easily had the trophy.
@ All the sheep saying "another Utd-Barca final" know nothing about footie and expect lightning to keep striking twice and not realising surprises are possible when someone like Borussia Dortmund really could be a dark horse to get to the final and why not? Whether or not they could beat Barca or Real is another matter but nobody thought they could possibly beat Juve in 97 and they did. And interestingly this years final is in Munich just like in 97 albeit in a different stadium. Food for thought.
Theres a few teams that could be in the this year but i can pretty much be sure barcalona will be there. With no doubt either manu, man city if there in it cant remember or chelsea. Arsenal have nae chance.

Well Barca have strengthened their team, and they won last year so it would be a safe bet to say them in the final.
I reckon Barca - Milan.
milan. i.e the milan 2 years ago raped by united, and the milan beaten last year by spurs. You having us on?
Cant pick a final as people have said, might meet in quarters, but in the semis I have united city barca and real, providing they miss each other. but as they probably wont, ill have dortmund in there as a fourth.
I'd say United Barcelona again. getting a bit boring tbh. Barca that is. Passing in triangles until their opponents collapse from boredom. really annoys me. I'd love to see Borussia Dortmund get there but I don't see it happening.
