We're three weeks into the UEFA Champions League for this season, which means exactly halfway through the group stages of Europe's premier competition.
Already we've been stunned and surprised by the performances of certain teams—both those that are thriving and those that are spluttering—as the contenders begin to separate themselves from the pretenders in this year's tournament.
Who are the top sides in the Champions League this year and who should go back to concentrating on their domestic competitions? Read on to find a complete power ranking for all 32 teams including a prediction on their qualification aspirations.
You'll see that I've tried to incorporate both their performances in the tournament so far, as well as their likelihood of how they'll finish in the group.
Thus, someone like Porto—who hasn't dropped a point yet and top of their group—is higher than someone like Manchester City—who are yet to win the tournament—despite the fact that the Premier League champions are one of the top sides in the world.
Hopefully that will make itself clear as you read on.
Think we got it wrong? Anyone who deserves to be higher or lower? Feel free to share your take on these Champions League power rankings in the comments below.
