Champions League: Pochettino snubs PSG, names favourite to win trophy

Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has said Chelsea are favourites to win the Champions League this season.

The Blues are the current holders of the title after they beat Manchester City 1-0 in May.


Thomas Tuchel’s men have began this campaign on a shaky note, beating Zenit 1-0 home, before losing 1-0 to Juventus in Turin.

However, Pochettino speaking to El Partidazo de COPE on night, said: “The favourite to win the Champions League is Chelsea.

“More than anything, because they are the defending champion.”

PSG themselves, bounced back from a disappointing 1-1 draw with Club Brugge in their first group fixture, to defeat City 2-0 before the international break.
