Puyol ranks Bavaria among CL favorites
For Carles Puyol, FC Barcelona are only a small favourite before the return leg against Chelsea. In total, he has four teams among the favourites for the CL title.
For FC Barcelona, the dream of a triple of championship, cup and Champions League title is still alive.
Barca legend Carles Puyol warns his ex-colleagues at SPORT1, however, before the return leg in the royal class round of the last sixteen against Chelsea FC (from 8.45 pm in the LIVETICKER):
“A 1-1 away is not a bad result, especially because of the goal. Chelsea played very well in London, however, and they will do the same in Camp Nou. They’re always dangerous, and they’re great at scoring anytime.”
The former captain, who celebrated six national championships with the Catalans and won the Champions League three times, still counts his former team among the favourites for the royal class title:
“Manchester City is playing a very good season. Real Madrid is also very dangerous because they can only win in the Champions League this year. And Barcelona, of course.”
The world and European champions also don’t underestimate the German record champion:”Bavaria didn’t start the season so well, but now they are playing at a very high level again. They have practically won the championship and for me they are also favourites in the Champions League.”
