Real Madrid's legendary winger Luis Figo does not believe his former team will retain the Champions League title they won last season.
"My favourite teams to win the Champions League this season are Manchester City and Bayern Munich," Figo said.
However, said he cannot completely write off Real Madrid as "they can always be counted on".
Last season Real Madrid were written off in the race for the Champions League when they faced PSG, Chelsea, and Manchester City en route to the final. Los Blancos overcame all and even came from behind to win in most of those games.
The scenario is looking similar once again. Real Madrid faces Chelsea in the quarter-final and could battle either Manchester City or Bayern Munich in the semi-final if they can beat the Blues.
