There is nothing new to say about the German club Borussia Dortmund. The Swiss coach Lucien Favre is leading the team to success. Under his guidance, Dortmund has started to play very aggressive football from the last season. Due to their own fault at the end of the last season, they missed some points and so, they could not win the Bundesliga title. But, by defeating Bayern Munich, Dortmund won the German Super Cup.
The knowledge of the coach and young team are the main weapons of the club. Like a player Paco Alcacer who could not get the proper chance when played for the Catalan club but when he moved to the German club Dortmund, he made the goals flood. In the last season, by playing 32 appearances, the player scored 19 goals. And in the new season, he played two matches and scored two goals so far.

And if we look to the team Inter Milan, under the leading of their new boss Antonio Conte who led the EPL club Chelsea earlier and also the former boss of the Italian top-flight Juventus, Inter Milan is much stronger right now.
After joining at the San Siro, he already brought a number of effective players like Belgium star Romelu Lukaku, Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez, Diego Godin and some others. He used to ground his team with 3 – 5 – 2 formation. In the last season, it was quite easy to beat Inter Milan in the group but this time, it would not be the same.
