Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has predicted the winner of this season's UEFA Champions League. Robertson was knocked out by Atletico Madrid in the round-of-16 but he doesn't see the Spanish team winning it all.
The UEFA Champions League will soon be back.
With the remainder of the round-of-16 games scheduled to take place from August 7th, an integral player of last season's winners has had his say on who will take their crown as Europe's best.
Andy Robertson, the Liverpool full-back believes that many teams are still the favourites but has picked out one specific team to win it all.
Robertson's Liverpool was eliminated in the round-of-16 against Atletico Madrid after losing 4-2 on aggregate with a memorable four goals scored in extra-time. Alvaro Morata secured Atletico's qualification to the quarter-finals, scoring in stoppage time of extra-time.
That one was for all those Liverpool fans that mocked Morata at Chelsea.

Robertaon told The Lockdown Tactics:
"Behind closed doors and being at neutral venues I think it opens it up...Before lockdown Bayern looked excellent against Chelsea. Real Madrid are always there or thereabouts but they've got to overturn Manchester City which is never easy. I think Man City could be there and Juventus."
Happy 25th birthday to Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry :flag_de:
What a player he has become :zap:

"Behind closed doors at a neutral venue I honestly think any of them could win it. We played against Atletico and they defend for their lives...If they get a lead I fancy them to keep it. If I had to put my neck on the line though I'd go Bayern Munich."
Bayern Munich are currently still in their tie against Chelsea in the round-of-16, albeit going into the second-leg with a 3-0 aggregate. If they finish the job against Chelsea then the German giants will play either Lyon or Barcelona in the quarter-finals.
Who do you think will win the UEFA Champions League?
