Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp believes that Manchester City and Bayern Munich are the two favorites to win this season’s Champions League.
The Reds were eliminated from this season’s Champions League after they lost to Atletico Madrid in the round of 16 before the season got suspended.
Klopp told reporters: “For me, the two big favourites left in the competition are Bayern and Man City. That would be an interesting game! I don’t know exactly if it could happen, if they will meet in the semi-final or whatever.
“Bayern obviously played a very impressive season in Germany, before and after lockdown. After Hansi Flick took over it was really impressive what they did.
“They are obviously the two favourites.
“The competition will be really interesting, as it’s completely new. But when you see Man City, you see the squad they have…
“Everyone needs luck, but like I always said; if you want to win the Champions League, you should have your best line-up ready for the final.
“It’s not that the other teams have no chance, but I really think that these two teams are the favourites.”
He added: “But even in the game [against Liverpool] on Thursday, which City won deservedly, we should have scored three goals. Don’t forget that. We should have and would have on a normal day.
“They have so much quality, but no team in the world is perfect. City is not, Bayern is not and we are not, but you need to be nearly perfect in order to win the Champions League.
“I will watch it, the little tournament. It’s really interesting, but unfortunately we have no part to play in it this year.”
The tournament is set to resume next month.
