The UEFA Champions League re-opened this Tuesday with an interrogation: after being the first team to retain its title since AC Milan in 1990, will Real Madrid succeed the pass of three? Like the young Moroccan right-back Achraf Hakimi, who will have the honor of being part of the double-holdership of the title, many Africans will again compete in the competition.

For the heads of billboard, we will follow with particular attention the performances of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in Borussia Dortmund, the duo Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah in Liverpool, Mehdi Benatia (Juventus), Yaya Touré (Manchester City) , Eric Bailly (Manchester United), Serge Aurier (Tottenham) and others like Victor Moses (Chelsea). The great debut of Naby Keita (RB Leipzig) and Baldé Keita (Monaco) should also be worth the detour.
