Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has come out to say that he feels Bayern Munich are favourites to win the UCL. He recently revealed that despite the praise his team has been receiving in recent weeks, Bayern remains the team to beat.
According to him, as long as Bayern are still in the Champions League, Man City can’t be the favourites to win this year, especially since the Blues do not have a good UCL history.
He added that he was pleased with his boys’ performance vs Borussia Monchengladbach, even if they could have scored more.
His words, “In general, we controlled the game. Unfortunately today we were not clinical enough up front,”
“That is something we have to improve in this competition. Up front, we have to be more clinical. In this competition, you have to be perfect to make sure you go through.”
“When I see Bayern Munich I don’t think we are favourites. My target is West Ham in three days.”
“If people say we are favourites we have to accept it, but a team who in their whole history has been a semi-final once? OK, they say it, we have to accept it.”
