Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has uncovered his top favourites for the UEFA Champions League crown this season.
Robertson’s side were taken out of the competition by Atletico Madrid yet the defender can’t see them turning out to be European champions in this campaign. Alvaro Morata had tied down Atletico’s qualification to the quarter-finals, scoring in stoppage time of extra-time.
Talking about his top picks to win the opposition, Robertson revealed to The Lockdown Tactics, “Behind closed doors and being at neutral venues I think it opens it up…Before lockdown Bayern looked excellent against Chelsea. Real Madrid are always there or thereabouts but they’ve got to overturn Manchester City which is never easy. I think Man City could be there and Juventus.”
He included, “Behind closed doors at a neutral venue I honestly think any of them could win it. We played against Atletico and they defend for their lives…If they get a lead I fancy them to keep it. If I had to put my neck on the line though I’d go Bayern Munich.”
Bayern are right now still in their round-of-16 tie against Chelsea, yet will be going into the second-leg with a 3-0 total. On the off chance that they take the Blues out, the German giants will play either Lyon or Barcelona in the quarter-final.
