The Champions League trophy is the most coveted accolade around Europe, but it’s a very hard tournament to win, as history has proven.
Certain clubs have been quite commanding in their own leagues and hardly come up against much of a challenge with regards to winning titles. However, the Champions League presents a totally different set of demands.
It’s all well and good winning domestic silverware, but there are a few teams who would be better off trying to win Europe’s top competition for various reasons.
Here are five clubs who should concentrate on winning the big eared trophy this season.
#1 Paris Saint-Germain
This Ligue 1 side has been taking full advantage of their financial prowess these few years, and have maintained a choke-hold on France’s top flight for several years.
They have won the last four league titles, and although they are still three behind Lyon, who won it on seven consecutive occasions in the early 2000’s, switching their focus to the Champions League shouldn't hurt.
Now without Zlatan Ibrahimovic in their ranks, the challenge should be markedly harder. The Swede’s devilry up front made things so much better, and his absence is already beginning to show. PSG are currently third on the table with 16 points from eight games while OGC Nice lead the pack with 20.
Perhaps they can afford to forget about Ligue 1 for a bit and aim for what would be their first Champions League trophy, as that is the most coveted title that the owners of PSG would like to celebrate winning.
