Former Manchester United man Rio Ferdinand thinks that Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are the two likeliest teams to challenge Manchester City for the Champions League trophy in this term. Bayern celebrated a 4-1 victory over Lazio on Tuesday, while PSG also celebrated a victory over Barcelona with the 4-1 score.
City celebrated a 2-0 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach in the round of 16 first leg as Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus got their names on the scoresheet. With the win, Pep Guardiola’s side extended their winning run to 19 matches.
Speaking after the Monchengladbach win,Ferdinand told BT Sport: “Bayern have the experience and the quality, but I think Paris Saint-Germain as well.
“Having your two wide players or two strikers cheating and saying to Man City: ‘Are you going to commit?’. Will you stay back or will you keep committing people forward – it’s a shootout.
“The likes of Mbappe and Neymar in a shootout, you’re dicing.”
