Owen Hargreaves and Rio Ferdinand, both former Manchester United players, have chosen the strongest teams in the Champions League this season.
Both ex-England players believe Manchester City are the favorites to win the Champions League in 2021/22.
Ferdinand, on the other hand, sees Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool as a team to beat, characterizing them as a very powerful side going into the round of 16 matches.
“This season, I believe Manchester City and Liverpool are the two strongest clubs in the tournament,” Ferdinand stated on BT Sport.
“The players they have…They’ve been working together for a long time and came close to winning last season…
“Liverpool are the favourites,” Hargreaves added. Yes, Manchester City and Liverpool, as well as Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.”
Manchester City thumped Sporting Lisbon at the Etihad in the first leg of the round of sixteen clash on Tuesday night.
