The dust has settled on Liverpool’s defeat to Real Madrid in last season’s Champions League final but the continent’s leading clubs are already preparing to go again.
All roads lead to next year’s final at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, the scene of Liverpool’s famous comeback victory over AC Milan in the 2005 showpiece.

There is the little matter of qualifying to resolve before the big boys enter the competition and the preliminary rounds kick off next week as teams from Europe’s lower-profile leagues attempt to reach the group stage.
Who are the favourites to win the Champions League 2022/23?
Paddy Power’s top traders have priced up a betting market for the Outright Winner of the Champions League 2022/23 and you can see the latest prices on our snazzy widgets below.
Manchester City have repeatedly fallen short in Europe over the years but they are the favourites to win this season’s competition. The signing of part-man, part-machine Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund should ensure Pep Guardiola’s team has plenty of firepower.
After an agonising defeat in last season’s final, Liverpool will aim to go one better this time and Jurgen Klopp’s also has a shiny new addition to his front-line in the form of Darwen Nunez, although the loss of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich is a blow.
Like City, Kylian Mbappe’s PSG have also failed to conquer Europe since their mega-money takeover and they’ll try something different next season with Christophe Galtier set to replace Mauricio Pochettino in the dugout and a slew of new signings on the way.
