These are the champions! Die Meister! Die Besten! Les grandes équipes! The champions!

Manchester City are the defending champions in 2023/24 after completing their historic treble with victory in the final over Inter in Istanbul. Pep Guardiola’s side are among the favourites again this year, though European giants Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Barcelona will hope their summer transfer business can power them to glory this season.
