The UEFA champions league group stage matches start later today. Qualification phase for teams in countries with low UEFA co-efficient ranking battling for a chance in the group stage has been played. And the victors are now known with the teams now among the already qualified teams.
Qualification teams include the likes of Ajax and Olympiacos. Others are Dinamo Zagreb, Slavia Prague, Red Star Belgrade and Club Brugge of Belgium. Ajax had to also participate despite winning the Eredivisie league and getting to the semi-finals of the UEFA champions league last year. This is due to the Netherlands having a low UEFA co-efficient. This is as a result of bad performances of teams from there over the years in the continental competition.
The champions league provides teams in Europe the chance to prove how good they and the right of being known as the best for the year. Last year edition of the champions league saw Liverpool beat fellow premier league rival Tottenham Hotspur in the final at the Wanda Meropolitano, Madrid.
