Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero predicts Champions League winner

With the UEFA Champions League race heating up, Alessandro Del Piero has backed Manchester City to win the title this season.

City qualified for the last 16 as group winners ahead of Dinamo Zagreb, Shakhtar Donetsk, and Atalanta and will face Real Madrid in the Round of 16.

Champions League is a trophy that has eluded City with their best place finish being a semi-final back in 2016 when they lost out to Real Madrid.

In an interview with ESPN, Del Piero tipped City to lift the Champions League this season, "I still believe that Manchester City have a real chance.

"So many years they came close - VAR one year, VAR the next year and it didn't happen. I think we'll have a great idea after the next round.

"There are some changes, in the market and with coaches, some can make you better but most of the time nothing changes much.

"Liverpool still have a big chance because I love Klopp and the way he manages the team. But I think they will be busy with the league."

The 1996 Champions League winner with Juventus was asked who he'd put his money on: "City - I'll go with City."
