Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has picked out Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain as his two favourites to lift the Champions League trophy this season.
Axar.az informs that, Europe’s premier competition had to be put on hold back in March due to the coronavirus crisis but will restart over the coming days, with Juventus entertaining Lyon (Agg 0-1) and Manchester City playing host to Real Madrid (Agg 2-1) on Friday night.
The remaining round of 16 games take place the following evening as Napoli travel to Barcelona (Agg 1-1) and Bayern Munich (Agg 0-3) look to defend their lead at home to Chelsea.
Asked to predict this year’s winner, Wenger told Europe 1: ‘When you are playing a match against Atalanta or Atletico Madrid, anything can happen. ‘But for me, Manchester City and PSG are the two favourites in terms of their potential. ‘Aside from that, honestly, PSG, I feel they are a little bit less strong than 3 or 4 years ago.’
