Premier League champions Manchester City have pot one status, along with Liverpool and Chelsea, thanks to their Champions and Europa League titles respectively. Zinedine Zidane will likely lead them back to some sort of good form sooner rather than later, and that could result in a hard Champions League opponent. But, the results secured by the other four sides in the top six have nothing been short of abysmal.
"Bayern are one of the three biggest clubs in the world and have a superb squad", Lewandowski added. Liverpool won on the Friday night and then Manchester City won early on the Saturday.
"Our identity is intensity", said Klopp after the game which saw wave after wave of attacks wear down the Gunners defence.
"There was no time to breathe".
Paris-Saint Germain, who were shockingly knocked out by Manchester United round-of 16 stage last season, have been paired with 13-time title holders Real Madrid, Belgian side Club Brugge and Turkish giants Galatasaray.
While it would be reckless to say the Champions League should be treated as a free hit this season, there is no great pressure on Liverpool to win it again. "It won't be easy, but we have to make sure we're prepared". We use every second of pre-season to be ready. "I am proud to be part of this club", said the 31-year-old, who has scored 207 Bundesliga goals in 292 appearances for Bayern and former club Dortmund.
A 32-year-old Brazilian global with vast experience at the top level should not be giving away soft penalties like that - yet with Luiz these things just seem to happen.
A win and they will feel they are back on track, but another defeat and they will be even further off the pace.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Arsenal talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has disclosed the club can challenge for the Premier League title this season despite their poor campaign last term.
The Reds have made a ideal start to the season with three wins from three - including a 3-1 victory over Arsenal on Saturday - while last season's champions Manchester City have also made a decent start with seven points.
