Messi names his Champions League favorites this season, ignores Barca

“PSG have been looking to win the Champions League and have been very close. We are one of the main candidates, but not the only one,” Lionel Messi said to BeIN Sport.

“Everyone is talking about PSG because of the players, but other clubs have been working together for years and have signed good players, like Manchester United, Man City, Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Atletico or Chelsea.

It is quite interesting how Messi mentions 6 clubs but ignores Barcelona. He also overlooks Real Madrid.

Messi also adds: “It is a very difficult competition and not always the best team wins. You need a lot of things to win it, everything is possible.”
