Young Soccer Players To Watch Our For In Champions League

In just over a year’s time the young Frenchman has made two big moves. Last summer, he went from French giants Paris Saint-Germain to reigning Italian champions Juventus and after 20 games for the Old Lady, he was on his way to Bayern Munich of the German Bundesliga. The youngster scored his first goal for the Bavarians in only his second game and looks good for a few more. He is likely to be Robert Lewandowski’s understudy this season, but can be counted on to make his presence felt this season.

Raheem Sterling

The England international finally had his wish fulfilled when he moved to Manchester City from Liverpool and has slotted straight away into the Citizen’s first team at the Etihad Stadium. The youngster has been a livewire on the left side of Manchester City’s attack and is likely to have a good Champions League campaign.

Paulo Dybala

The young Argentine moved to reigning Italian champions and 2015 Champions League finalists Juventus from Palermo for big money and has immediately got among the goals, netting three from his five appearances across all competitions so far. The youngster, who came on as sub in Juventus’ opening Champions League fixture against Manchester City, is likely to play a more prominent role as the season progresses.

Julian Draxler

The Germany international is no stranger to Champions League football, having represented Schalke many a times in the elite competition. He has changed teams this summer and will now be donning the colours of Wolfsburg. Wolfsburg were in majestic form last term with Kevin De Bruyne pulling strings from his role in attacking midfield and now the same role has fallen to Draxler after the Belgian’s departure to Manchester City, and he will be eager to make Wolfsburg tick from his number 10 role.

Douglas Costa

The Brazilian moved to Bayern Munich in the summer from Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk and has been one of the outstanding performers in the Bundesliga. He was brought in to be a stand-in for injury-prone France international Franck Ribery, but his performances so far have earned him the right to be a starter, and it will be interesting to see what he does at the highest stage of European football.

Anthony Martial

The 19-year-old has announced his arrival in the English league in style as he scored a breathtaking debut goal against Liverpool and has since gone on to score a brace against Southampton. It is still early days of his career at Old Trafford, but he surely looks to be the real deal for the Red Devils. He will be one of the youngsters to watch out for in the Champions League.

Alexandre Lacazette

The Frenchman will be taking the centre stage for Lyon in the Champions League, especially after the long-term injury to Nabil Fekir. And the 24-year-old, who has netted 70 goals in all competitions for Lyon is more than capable of not just leading Lyon’s attack, but also lighting up the Champions League with his skills.
