Brazilian legend Rivaldo has cautioned that Manchester City could struggle against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League after their quadruple hopes were shattered this weekend by Chelsea.
“The Champions League might be the toughest of them all with PSG in the semi-final being a great challenge, as the French club were finalists last season and this season they have already eliminated Barcelona and Bayern Munich,” Rivaldo told Betfair.
“After the Champions League quarter-finals there are just four teams remaining in contention to win the title with Manchester City the favourites, but I also rate PSG on a similar level to claim an unprecedented title.
“For me, these are the two teams in better condition to lift the trophy this season which means we should have a thrilling semi-final with the French team possessing a really threatening attack with Neymar, Mbappe and Di Maria.
“Pep Guardiola is desperate to finally win the Champions League with City, but I think it won’t be easy for his team to reach such goals as PSG – as well as the finalist from the other tie should they get past the French outfit – won’t be easy to dominate.”
