Champions League: Owen Hargreaves Names only team that will stop Man City from Winning Quadruple


Former England International, Owen Hargreaves has identified Bayern Munich as the only club that will stop Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City from winning the Champions League this season.

According to him, City are well positioned to win the quadruple this season but Bayern Munich are the only side that can ‘stop them’.

Man City saw a 21-match winning streak brought to a grinding halt by Manchester United earlier this month but they have bounced back with three straight wins.

City beat Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday courtesy of goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan and are now in the last 8 of the Champions League.

They are also in the final of the Carabao Cup, the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and are 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Talk of them claiming all four major trophies this season has started and of all the teams potentially lying in their path, but Hargreaves sees Bayern as their only obstacle.

“I think you have to say it is [conceivable City can win the quadruple] just from the form they have,” Hargreaves told BT Sport.

“They don’t really concede. Won 21 of the last 22. “We all know the margins are so fine at that highest level and if you don’t get the details right, you can go out.

“I think Pep realises now that playing this way maybe he can control some of those little details.

“The only team I see that can stop them is Bayern Munich. That’s probably the only one I see. But if they have a bad day then as we saw with United, they can be beaten.”
