Johan Cruyff has claimed that Barcelona and Real Madrid are favourites for the Champions League this season.

The capital club play Galatasaray this evening in their first group stage match of the season, whilst the Blaugrana play Ajax on Wednesday.

And the Camp Nou hero is confident that the Liga giants will compete for the trophy.

“Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are the favourites for me,” he told Tuttosport.

“I will follow them with interest. I am expecting a lot of entertainment.

“Juventus will also aspire to win the Champions League – for two years now they have played football which has suited a European style.”
