Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed his favourite to win the Uefa Champions League this season. Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is favourite to win the Europe’s elite trophy this season according to the Italian manager.

Antonio Conte’s side Chelsea finished second in their group as AS Roma top the group C. Blues have very limited option to face the side in last 16 as four English sides have finished as group winners at group stage. According to same nation rule, Chelsea avoids Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham to face in last 16 and they couldn’t play their group winner Roma due to same group. Only PSG, Barcelona or Besiktas could face Chelsea at last 16 stage.

Conte would like to avoid PSG or Barcelona at this early stage if they want to move forward in the tournament. But, they won’t have much luck to avoid the both of them. Italian manager knows his team situation at the moment as he made positive comments about his rival team.

Chelsea boss claims, “I think when you reach this level, it’s very difficult to tell this team is good or this team is no good. For sure on paper and also for experience, for the story of these two clubs, I think Barcelona, PSG are very good, very good.”

“For sure these two clubs are favorites for the final victory in this competition. At the same time, we must be ready to face Barcelona, PSG or Besiktas. Now, it’s not the right moment to think of this.”
