5. Bayern Munich - Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gotze, Arjen Robben
The Bundesliga champions had an excellent summer, acquiring Robert Lewandowski, Mehdi Benatia, Pepe Reina and Xabi Alonso for a combined fee of only £29million.
Manager Pep Guardiola has proved himself in the German league but is now ready with his squad to challenge for European glory.
Players to watch
Robert Lewandowski - The Polish striker took the game by storm during the 2012-13 season playing for Borussia Dortmund and has now joined rivals Bayern Munich on a free transfer.
A consistent goalscorer, he has taken no time to settle in with his new teammates and start scoring immediately.
Mario Gotze - Germany's winning goal in the World Cup final in Brazil is still fresh in everyone's minds and on the back of a successful club and country season, Gotze would like to flourish further under the watchful guidance of manager Pep Guardiola.
Arjen Robben - The Dutchman is the backbone of Bayern Munich and the Netherlands national team. With a brilliant domestic season and a commendable third place finish in the World Cup, Robben would want to further improve from where he left off last term.
A counter-attacking threat for rivals, Robben is the players linking up midfield and attack for the Bavarians.
