No love for Man City, as Rio Ferdinand predicts CL finalists

    Date published: Sunday 9th August 2020 4:58

    Rio Ferdinand has dismissed favourites Man City’s chances in the Champions League and predicted the two finalists.

    Pep Guardiola’s City are the bookies’ favourites after beating Real Madrid home and away to line-up a quarter-final clash with Lyon.

    But Ferdinand is not convinced by their chances and in fact did not even mention them when talking about the potential winners on BT Sport.

    Instead the former Man Utd defender believes PSG and Bayern Munich will make the final in Lisbon on August 23.

    Ferdinand said on BT Sport: “I want Paris Saint-Germain to get there because of the likes of [Kylian] Mbappe and Neymar. You want them glamour players to be there.

    “And I’m going for Bayern with the way they’ve been performing over the season.”

    Former City and United midfielder Owen Hargreaves gave City a chance, but expects them to be knocked out before the final.

    Hargreaves said: “I think PSG will be in the final but I think Bayern will be too good for them.

    “City have a chance, for sure. They’re one of the best teams in the competition. But I just think Bayern have a few more variables to their game.”

    The pair also believe the new one-legged format will make it an exciting prospect.

    “It adds to it,” added Ferdinand. “It makes it better.

    “One game, it’s like the FA Cup. Giant killers. Anyone can beat anyone on any given day and you haven’t got that back-up and that security: ‘Oh, we can take them home next game’.”

    Hargreaves said: “It takes away that away goal thing and the tactical thinking. Just go for it.”
