Leicester, meanwhile, qualified for the first time in this tournament, will be confident that they can shock the world once again when they face FC Porto, Club Brugge and FC Copenhagen in Group G.

Claudio Ranieri still needs to find a midfield solution having lost N'golo Kante during the summer, although he will count on Daniel Amartey to be a key element in the heart of midfield as well as Jeffrey Schlupp on the flanks. 

Thomas Partey, Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid reached the final last season where they were defeated by neighbours Real Madrid, and after strengthening during the summer, there’s no reason why they can’t go all the way again, particularly having kept hold of Antonie Griezmann and Jan Oblak. 

Partey featured in the final, making a late cameo, but having been left out of the squad to travel to PSV Eindhoven, it remains to be seen what role he will play this time around.

Juve were unfortunate to fall at the quarter-finals last season when an inspired performance by their own player Kingsley Coman—on loan at Bayern Munich—saw them dumped out in extra time. 

They may have lost Paul Pogba, but the signing of Gonzalo Higuain makes them genuine contenders, and it’s up to Asamoah—as well as the likes of Sami Khedira, Miralem Pjanic and Mario Lemina—to prove that the world’s most expensive player won’t be missed.
