Barcelona are favourites to lift the trophy this season following their remarkable display of football brilliance.

Many had been looking up for a Juventus versus Barcelona semi final clash which would renew the Messi/Ronaldo rivalry.

But with Juventus failing to progress beyond the quarter final stage, it is understood that now is the chance for Messi and Barca to clinch the title.

2. Will Liverpool make it into back-to-back Champions League finals?

The Merseyside club have continued from where they stopped last season as they are looking to erase the memory of the defeat to Real Madrid in the finals in Kiev.

But Jurgen Klopp's side face a hard task in going past the Spanish giants Barcelona, who have been deemed favourites to win the tournament.

Liverpool this season are chasing the Champions League and the Premier League titles respectively which might go their way or end up losing both trophies.
