Real Madrid with another relatively simple Champions League group

Real Madrid with another relatively simple Champions League group

| sport

The draw for the group stage of the 2023/2024 Champions League has revealed the opponents of Real Madrid in the first round of the competition. Ancelotti's team will face Napoli, SC Braga, and Union Berlin in Group C to secure a spot in the round of sixteen.

Real Madrid's main objective in this edition will be to clinch their fifteenth European Cup in history. The Madrid team is one of the top contenders to reach the final of the European competition at Wembley on June 1, 2024.

Napoli (Italy)

The Italian champions will be the first opponent of Real Madrid in the Group Stage. Napoli clinched the Serie A title last season after dominating the championship from start to finish, although this season they feel the pressure to make an impact on the international stage.

The threats for the Madrid team come from Victor Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia, two players who were close to leaving this transfer window but ultimately stayed with Napoli. The most challenging rival for Ancelotti's side.

SC Braga (Portugal)

The Portuguese team reached the Champions League after overcoming the qualifying rounds against Panathinaikos. Abel Ruiz is the main threat for a team that aims to surprise Napoli and Real Madrid.

Union Berlin (Germany)

One of the biggest surprises of the past season. The German team is a unique club that debuted in the Bundesliga in 2019. Distanced from the big money and deals in the football world, Union Berlin has carved out a place in the European elite after overcoming severe economic crises that almost led to the club's disappearance. It's undeniable that they are the most easy to beat rival of the three, although they are determined to attempt an upset against all odds.
