Matchday 1 action kickstarts on September 6, 2022, and the season finals will happen on June 10, 2023, at Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Turkey, Istanbul. The venue hosted the finals in 2005 when Liverpool got a comfortable 3-0 win against AC Milan. Initially, Istanbul was selected to host 2020 final but moved to Lisbon due to COVID-19. As a result, 2021 final was going to take place in Istanbul, but it did not pan out again. Portugal saw the 2020-2021 UEFA showdowns.
In the previous season, English club Liverpool met the Spanish club Real Madrid for the third time in the UEFA Champions League finals after 1981 and 2018. The finale happened in Paris, France, and at the Stade de France. Real Madrid spectacularly won the game with a 0-1.

Will Real Madrid repeat their win to get the 15th title? We will see. The prospects are looking thin, given the talented cubs on the list. The French Paris Saint-Germain continues to work towards achieving the first-ever Champions League crown like Man City. There has to be a Group of Death in every tournament, and this season has offered a pool full of hard-hitting teams such as Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Inter Milan grouped in one with Viktoria Plzen.

Napoli vs. Eintracht Frankfurt
While Napoli generally cruised through Frankfurt in the first leg in February, the match is barely halfway finished. Will the Serie A champions end the task on their home turf? Frankfurt has a 2-0 deficit and is trying to draw this game. There is also the tactical component to think about. Frankfurt will have to visit Napoli and give them a little trouble; this will work out well for Luciano Spalletti’s team, who will want to eliminate their opponents during breaks. Moreover, Napoli is a huge favorite in this Champions League game.

Any player’s offensive skills can get highlighted when choosing a player to observe. But particularly for this match, their leading scorer Victor Osimhen is the one most likely to cause trouble for the Frankfurt defense. His playing style will make him the ideal tool to crack open Frankfurt’s defensive weaknesses. Napoli is the favorite to win the match, leaving Frankfurt with a difficult task in this Champions League game. Expect a comfortable win for Napoli at the end.
Real Madrid vs. Liverpool
In the much-awaited UCL match, Real Madrid and Liverpool will once again square off in what looks to be a mind-blowing battle.

Karim Benzema, who made history at the Santiago Bernabeu and emerged from Cristiano Ronaldo’s shadow as he spearheaded Los Blancos’ push, was their savior this time. Liverpool operates like a well-oiled machine. The Reds are skilled at shutting out their opponents, but their recent performance contradicts this. Expect Real Madrid to cruise to victory in this Champions League game.
