'Barca Are UCL Favourites Because Of Messi'

'FC Barcelona Are UEFA Champions League Favourites Because Of Lionel Messi'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Dec 28, 2017 06:01 PM @KurtLaduma

One of the world's top managers believes FC Barcelona are favourites to win the UEFA Champions League because of Lionel Messi.

Reports: What Ronaldo Told Teammates After El Clasico Drubbing

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City have been in incredible touch this season, winning 18 straight games in the Premier League – a run that has never before been achieved.

As a result, many are tipping the Citizens to win the Champions League, but manager Guardiola believes otherwise.

The Spaniard was recently asked if he backs his men as favourites for this season's edition of Europe's biggest club competition, and according to Sky Sports, he replied with: "Who does (Lionel) Messi play for?"

The reporter quickly named Barca as the side Messi represents, with Guardiola responding: "So they're the favourites."

CR7 & Messi Beaten To Most Goals In Calendar Year For First Time Since 2009

Messi has been in great form for the Catalan club this season, scoring 19 goals and assisting another eight strikes in 25 matches so far

Do you agree with Guardiola's sentiments? Let us know in the comments section below.
