Lionel Messi believes that the strongest teams in Europe are Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, and sees them as the favourites for the UCL.
City are currently top of the Premier League table, holding a 8 point lead over United and not losing a match yet in the UCL.
Paris Saint Germain are also running riot in their domestic league and boast a perfect record in the UCL.
“City is one of the strongest teams at the moment together with PSG,” he told Marca.
“So far, they have been the two teams that have shown themselves to be favourites, but this is a very long and tough competition.”
“I never rule out Real Madrid because although they’re not having the results that everyone expects, I have no doubt that in the end they will be fighting for everything, as they do every year.
“Bayern is another big team that will also be there at the end, but it’s true that today City and PSG are the best.”
