Former Manchester United forward, Dimitar Berbatov has backed German team, Bayern Munich to win this year Champions League ahead of other European teams.
Bayern Munich are back in good form after the resumption of Bundesliga as they’ve been banging in goals from all cylinders and according to Berbatov they are the favorite to win the Champions League’s trophy for a sixth time this season.
Berbatov noted that the German club could have an advantage if the competition resumes after the COVID-19 stoppage due to the Bundesliga’s earlier re-start.
‘Looking at this year’s Champions League, I am now leaning more towards Bayern Munich to win it, if it goes ahead,’ Berbatov told Betfair.
Maybe because I am watching a lot of Bundesliga, but they always impress with quality football and they have some great players,’
‘The way they dismantled Chelsea in that last match was unbelievable, they did it with such ease.’
‘I am not sure how the stoppage will affect everybody, but Bayern Munich may have a slight advantage because they are playing football now and they are getting their match sharpness back, I wouldn’t be surprised if they are now the favourites,’ Berbatov said.
Bayern thrashed Chelsea 3-0 in their Champions League last 16, first-leg match in February but the return game was postponed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
They also on the verge of winning the Bundesliga for a record-extending 30 times.
