FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has revealed which four teams he believes are the best in the UEFA Champions League this season.
The Argentine feels the toughest sides in Europe's biggest club competition are Pep Guardiola's Manchester City and Unai Emery's Paris Saint-Germain, and also had a special mention for Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
"City are one of the strongest teams at the moment, along with PSG," he said in an interview with Spanish outlet Marca.
"They've been the two strongest teams up to this point, but it's a very long season.
"I never dismiss Real Madrid for what they have and their experience, even though now they aren't getting the results people expect.
"Bayern Munich, too. They're another big team that will be there at the end of the season, but it's true that, today, City and PSG are the best."
City have won all five of their UCL group matches, while PSG have done the same, and broken the record for the most group-stage goals in a single season along the way.
