Italian world cup winning defender Fabio Cannavaro has given his champions league predictions for this season.
The former Real Madrid defender who won the Balon d’or in 2006 feels the English clubs are in a better position to win the champions league this season and he has backed defending champions Chelsea to retain their crown.
Fabio Cannavaro: “I think Chelsea can do it. They have a great manager in Thomas Tuchel, and a very good team. To win the Champions League, you need a lot of things to go your way. For me, English clubs are better prepared.”Hard Tackle via Simon Phillips
Chelsea beat fellow English club Manchester City to win the Uefa Champions League at the Estadio Do Dragao in Porto about seven months ago under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel and they’ve also started the 2021/22 season strongly as they sit top of group H heading into their last group game against Zenit St. Petersburg.
The Blues have won four out of their five champions league games so far, keeping clean sheets in all four wins and their only loss and only goal conceded came against Juventus in their second UCL group game away in Turin earlier this season.
