UCL 2018: 5 big threats to Real Madrid’s title defence


The 13th time UEFA Champions league title holder, Real Madrid had recently shocked after witnessing the signing of the century. Their Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo left the club and joined their Champions League rival Juventus which is a major blow to their thought of winning Champions League for the fourteenth time. In this context, every other club must be waiting to snatch the title from the biggest giants of the League. So, here the clubs which can make it harder for Real Madrid to save their throne this season.

Paris Saint Germain

With the current form, we can say that Ligue 1 giants can outclass the Ronaldo-less Real Madrid in the upcoming UEFA Champions League season 2018/2019. PSG has the best young talent of the year, Kylian Mbappe and the big dogs Edison Cavani, Neymar Junior. They can be a threat to Real Madrid’s title.

Bayern Munich

With the likes of  Robert Lewandowski, James Rodriguez, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, Bayern Munich will leave no chance to oust Real Madrid out of the race to the final and if they got the chance to meet the Spanish giants on the one last night of UEFA than Munich will do it all to get the title.


The nightmare of Liverpool against Real Madrid of the previous season’s final is too fresh to forget, and this time Liverpool will not lose their hope as they did after Mohamed Salah’s injury in the last edition’s final.


Ronaldo-less Real Madrid has the biggest threat from the Ronaldo added Juventus. He has been the main factor to win the Champions League so far Real. In fact, Juventus made it clear just before the deal with Ronaldo that the Italian team wants him to fulfil their dream of winning the Champions League.


Another La Liga giants and straight rival, Barcelona will leave no clue to let anyone including Real Madrid snatch their dreamed sixth title. It has been a difficult journey for Barcelona to keep on pushing their limits against Real but this time their talismanic star is not with them, but Barcelona has their magician Lionel Messi. He may be feeling blue after his performance in the FIFA World Cup, but now he’ll be ready to lift the title for the team.
