UEFA Champions League 2020-2021, group stage review
Most of the big favorites for this tournament were able to deliver and make it to the final stages, however, there were a few ugly surprises during this group stage, including a couple of legendary squads that had a disappointing season and were not even able to land a spot in the UEFA Europa League. We’re talking about Serie A giant, Internazionale, of course, which finished last in group B, with only 6 points. Lokomotiv Moscow is another one that usually finishes at least third, but wasn’t able this season, as well as French Olympique Marseille.
Out of the ones that also disappointed but were at least able to land a spot in UEFA Europa League, we can mention Ajax Amsterdam, Shakhtar Donetsk, Dynamo Kiev and the most surprising one, without a doubt, Manchester United, a team that is finally fighting for the top spots in the Premier League after many years, but that was not able to put up a fight in this tournament, for some reason.
The ones that did not fail in their task of reaching the final stages were Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid from group A, Real Madrid and Borussia Monchengladbach from group B, Manchester City and FC Porto from group C, and Liverpool and Atalanta from group D. Out of group E we have Chelsea and Sevilla, Borussia Dortmund and Lazio came out of group F, Juventus and Barcelona from group G, and finally, PSG and RB Leipzig from group H.
Eerling Haaland, Neymar, Morata and Marcus Rashford all finished the group stage with 6 goals each, co-leading the list.
