Juventus are my favourite for this season's CL crown. Allegri's men aren't the most exciting of teams but have a level of professionalism, experience and quality which is hard to dismiss. They won't blow teams away, but they'll be very hard to beat at the same time.
By now, we are all aware of their key players. Leo Bonucci is back this season and is essential to allowing them to play out of the back, as well as being a great defender in his own right. In midfield we have Pjanic. The Bosnian is their metronome in that middle third area. He dictates the pace and tempo of the game as well as being the creative hub of their midfield. Their front line is their greatest asset and also what makes them so dangerous. Having options of Costa, Manzukic, Dybala and Ronaldo affords you a level of flexibility that other teams in the competition cannot necessarily boast - 433, 352, 4312 and 442 have all been systems used by Allegri with these forwards.
The advantage of this is that it allows you to match up against other teams when needs be and also play on the weaknesses of your opponent. Also, having the greatest goal scorer in the history of the Champions League doesn't hurt. Juventus will be extremely hard to beat this season, especially in the latter stages. Ronaldo will be eager to add a 6th CL crown to his trophy collection. Is there anyone who can stop them? We shall see.
