UCL: Rio Ferdinand names two clubs Man City must avoid in semi-final draw


Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has said that only two clubs in Europe are capable of stopping Manchester City from winning the Champions League this season.

He believes Pep Guardiola and his men must be hoping to avoid Bayern Munich and Napoli in the Champions League draw.

Guardiola’s men thrashed RB Leipzig 7-0 (8-1 on aggregate) to move to the quarter finals, with Erling Haaland scoring five goals in one game and broke several records in the process.

Manchester City will know their next opponents on Friday with Chelsea, Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Benfica and Inter Milan currently in the draw.

The round of sixteen games will be completed today with Real Madrid tackling Liverpool in Spain, while Napoli will welcome German side, Frankfurt to Italy.

“They [City] will be thinking, ‘stay away from Bayern, stay away from Napoli. Everybody else is game”,’ the former defender told BT Sport.

“They are that good a team. They have experience at this level now and they’ve got the players that can hurt any team on the planet.”
