Jürgen Klopp says Bayern and Man City Champions League favourites. “I really think these two team are the favourites for this season.”
Bayern Munich and Manchester City are the clear favourites to win this season’s Champions League, believes Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp.
This season’s competition is set to resume in August in a mini-tournament format in Lisbon, having been put on hold since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“For me, the two big favourites are Bayern and Man City,” he said ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League meeting with Aston Villa. “That would be an interesting game.
“Bayern played obviously a very impressive season in Germany. After Hansi Flick took over, it was really impressive what they did. These are the two favourites. I don’t know exactly how it could happen – we’ll see in the semi-final or whatever.
“The competition will be really interesting because it’s completely new. When you see Man City, when you see the squad… everybody needs luck: if you want to win the Champions League, you should have your best line-up ready for the final if that’s possible.
