The World Cup will influence the season a lot, including this 22/23 CL.
Nobody knows how it is to play in a big tournament, for the greatest trophy in football, in November and December. Players will have to hit top form when they are not used to. This will change everything for the rest of the season. Many players will lose form and fitness in March or April, when they are usually set to hit top form and fitness.
Also, the group stages for the CL will end on November 2, more than a month earlier than usual. Players will be thinking about the WC, so I expect lots of surprises in the last two rounds of the group stage.
We will have a strange season, similar to the covid one.
