Retired French International Christian Karembeu has expressed confidence that Los Blancos are favorites to lift the Champions League title for the third year in a row.
Real Madrid has not been doing so well domestically this season with Barcelona 15 points clear of them on the log. They were also dumped out of the Copa Del Rey in the quarter finals. Success in Europe has however been more forthcoming for Zidane’s side. They achieved a comprehensive 5-2 aggregate victory over PSG in the last 16 round of the tournament. Karembeu believes that Madrid are the only side left in the competition who can win it.
” Dont even ask the question. Only Real Madrid can win the Champions League. In Kiev, who is going to be playing Real is what I dont know”, Karembeu said speaking courtesy of hublot.
Christian Karembeu, who is a former Madrid midfielder, won the Champions League twice with Real Madrid.
