In the last 2 months, something was missing. I could feel it but couldn’t put it in black and white. I stumbled upon my email after days of neglect and lo and behold, I saw a mail titled: UEFA Champions League.

I quickly raced through my browser opening my regular football site and app and yes, the Champions League is back, hogging the headlines for reasons best known to the teams involved.

I was looking forward to seeing Monaco at the Emirates on Tuesday or Wednesday but my bubbles were burst seeing that Arsenal’s fixture was billed for the upper week. Nevertheless, the theme song of the UCL is a joy to listen to. It heals footballing wounds and prepares the mind for battle buttered with upcoming events on the pitch and old memories to savour.

Just in case you still feel lost, this infographic from guaranteetickets may help you tune in to the UCL spirit.
