Last night, the round of 16 was official. Five (!!) Premier League sides will enter Monday's draw alongside the usual big boys; Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Juventus.

Not to mention the bookies favourite Paris Saint-Germain who spent heavily in the summer. Though the French leaders rounded off the Group Stage by suffering their first defeat of the season.

With their feared attacking trident, PSG are tipped to go all the way. Though you can't write of Barcelona and holders Real Madrid. Here's Ferdinand, Lampard and Owen's thoughts on the Champions League favourites.

Despite looking mightily impressive thus far, albeit a shite league, Owen doesn't think PSG have the experience of winning the Champions League this season, even with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe ripping it up.

A competition where Cristiano Ronaldo is flourishing in unlike the La Liga campaign. Look no further than his individual highlights against Borussia Dortmund.

However, both Ferdinand and Lampard feel PSG's firepower is just too potent.

They've named Unai Emery's side as their favourites.
