With UEFA EURO 2020 in books, Champions League qualification takes center stage Tuesday
The best thing about soccer (or football, Futebol etc.) is that it never ends.
The Copa America and UEFA EURO 2020 tournaments just finished, and there are already games in the UEFA Champions League today and tomorrow.
In fact, the first round of qualification began last week, and some teams will go into today with big leads in the two-legged ties.
Some of the teams playing you will recognize (Dinamo Zagreb, Ludogorets) if you follow soccer, but others might be new to even the most ardent bettors.
I am going to go with the teams that have proven track records in this competition today.
