- Jurgen Klopp thinks Bayern and Manchester City can win the Champions League
- The German refused to rate Atletico Madrid who sent his side out of the competition
- Liverpool have already won the Premier League title for 2019/20 season
Outgoing Premier League champions Manchester City and German champions Bayern Munich have been tipped by Jurgen Klopp as the two favorites winners for the Champions League.
Despite winning the title last season beating Tottenham in the final, Liverpool have been sent out of the Champions League losing against Atletico Madrid.
But the Reds will still have something to celebrate with this term as they have already won the Premier League title despite five games remaining to end the season.
Manchester City are aiming to win the Champions League this season which Pep Guardiola has not won since he became boss at the Etihad.
The Citizens defeated mighty Real Madrid 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League knockout game with another tie expected to happen before knowing who reach the last 8.
Bayern Munich on the other hand have already put one leg in the quarterfinal after beating Chelsea 3-0 in the first tie and it will be hard for the Blues to recover.
With Barcelona and Juventus still in the race, Jurgen Klopp feels that Bayern Munich and Manchester City have the chance.
‘'I think for me the two big favorites left in the competition are Bayern and Man City.
‘That would be an interesting game. Bayern played an impressive season in Germany after Hansi Flick took over and it was really impressive what they did and these two are the favorites,'' Klopp explained.
