Mane, speaking to Telefoot, insists now is not the time for false modesty.
"The final is one game, it will be different from the championship (Premier League)," he declared.
"Why hide it? I think we are favourites."
He added: "Before the match (against Barça), I had never seen the coach like that. Jürgen Klopp motivated us, but he even did not believe it, honestly."
