Manchester City are currently the bigger favorites to beat league rivals, Chelsea, to the UEFA Champions League title when the two heavyweight teams lock horns in the final of the competition on the 29th of May and this is due to the fact that the newly-crowned Premier League champions have given a lot of reasons why they are expected to clinch the European title this season.
Not to say that Chelsea do not stand a chance against Pep Guardiola’s men, but the Blues have shown more signs of inconsistency this season and when it comes to the Champions League, especially in the final, even the smallest of mistakes is usually capitalized on and it is usually hard to recover from an opponent’s attack on a mistake.
While a lot of people have continued to expect City to complete a treble this season after already winning the League Cup and the Premier League title, some still believe that Chelsea still have what it takes to shock City and emerge as the winners of the competition on May 29th.
Former Blues striker Didier Drogba has now revealed that he is rooting for Chelsea and he believes that his former side are a match against City in terms of quality. Drogba said almost everyone believes that City are miles ahead of Chelsea but that the Blues are not very far behind in terms of attacking prowess.
The Champions League winner with Chelsea also said that if Thomas Tuchel can unleash his attacking stars and apply some of his tactical genii, it is totally possible for the Blues to emerge as winners of this tie once more after the Blues defeated the Cityzens at the Etihad Stadium in the last game between the two sides that was played at the Etihad Stadium.
