Leicester cannot be underestimated, warns Club Brugge boss Michel Preud'homme

PSG moved on beyond boss Laurent Blanc last season despite a dominant domestic season and Unai Emery has been recruited to continue the evolution and finally take them to the last four in the Champions League. Bayern Leverkusen and CSKA Moscow are both top teams in Germany and Russian Federation respectively, and they sure want to land a first blow as early as possible in what is a very tough group.

The Foxes found a formula which worked for them, mainly based around catching teams out with their quick counter-attacks, and it was very effective in bringing the club its unexpected first Premier League title.

What we'll see in this Group G match is the answer to a crucial question: was Leicester's EPL performance an outlier, or can the club emulate the highs of last season?

"At the age of 32, to be playing in a competition like this is fantastic and I'm looking forward to it".

Asked whether they were capable of going all the way, he responded: "Why not?" And groups B, E, G and H are genuinely hard to call in this year's competition; something that wasn't necessarily true just two seasons ago. PSG look like their only threat towards that goal.

- Ronaldo's only previous Champions League appearance against former team Sporting CP was in the 2007/08 group stages with Manchester United.

- Porto have lost only two of their last 12 Champions League group games (W7, D3), but those were their last two outings, against Dynamo Kiev and Chelsea at the end of last season's group stages.

"I am not going to say we can't match Forest".

Particularly avoid composing a team consisting of stars from both clubs, as you're nearly guaranteed to miss out on points that way since they play each other on Friday evening.

Claudio Ranieri branded it impossible for Leicester City to win the Champions League, but admitted his team are proof anything can happen. For this reason, I have most of my squad made of players from Manchester City, Barcelona, Juventus, and Bayern Munich.

"When we are standing in the tunnel it's going to be odd listening to the Champions League music but I'm buzzing for it", he said.

I believe this is the most important piece of advice to take from this article.

Michel Preud'homme believes Club Brugge face a tough task to get a good result against Leicester City in the Champions League on Wednesday. Sevilla won the Europa League for a third consecutive time after their group-stage exit and are also coming off a 2-1 Liga win at home against Las Palmas.

"Guardiola has managed to change the way they play so quickly". That would be a little bit unfair on a lot of teams. Most of these teams will deal with multiple competitions at once and players will pick up knocks here and there.

The 25th edition of the Champions League is set to get underway and everything points to it being one of the most exciting competitions since its inception.
