Real's Modric beats Ronaldo, Salah to be named Europe's top player

Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus Real Madrid transfer

Cristiano Ronaldo's new boss at Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri, says that the former Real Madrid man was upset at being beaten to the UEFA Player of the Year award by former teammate Luka Modric.

Ronaldo scored 15 goals as Real Madrid won the Champions League for the third year on the spin last season and was expected to pick up the award when he was shortlisted alongside Modric and Liverpool's Mo Salah.

"Is he the best midfield player in the world right now?"

Notably, Modric was also adjudged the best player of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

United, under the leadership of Jose Mourinho, will take on Juventus (and Cristiano Ronaldo) as well as Valencia and Young Boys.

In contrast, Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur will play each other in a testing Group B along with Inter Milan and PSV Eindhoven, the 1988 European Cup winners.

"I expected a hard group, we have a hard group and that's what the Champions League is all about, " Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said.

UEFA pays 2.7 million euros ($3.2 million) per group-stage win and 900,000 euros ($1.05 million) for a draw.

"As I have always said, I am at the best club in the world, where I want to be".

Here are 5 reasons Barcelona will perform better than Real Madrid in the 2018/2019 Champions League season.

Three more former European champions Bayern Munich, Benfica, Ajax are together with underdog AEK Athens in Group E.

Tottenham have agreed with UEFA that their first home group match, which will see them pitted against the Catalan giants is held at Wembley, but it is unclear what happens after that. It has been very nice playing for Real Madrid.

"But we have to respect Shakhtar and Hoffenheim".

"Of course we lost the Champions League final, but if you look at the passion the team played with, the aggression and the intensity, then teams wouldn't want to play Liverpool".

"I think we should consider Manchester City the favourites for our group", said Fonseca.
