Ex-Arsenal defender Dixon says Juventus, Real Madrid are Champions League favourites

Lee Dixon has identified Juventus and Real Madrid as the two sides most likely to win the Champions League this season.

The former Arsenal defender was speaking on ITV when he suggested the Bianconeri, who beat Barcelona 3-0 on Tuesday, and Los Blancos, who accounted for Bayern Munich 2-1 last night, are his selections for European glory.

"I think Juve have got something, they're an all-round team, they can create, they've got some steel about them," he said.

"Themselves and Real Madrid are the two sides."

Juventus meet Barcelona in the quarter-final return bout next Wednesday while Real will host Bayern on Tuesday.
