Chelsea vs Man City: Eto’o predicts Champions League final
Former Cameroon striker, Samuel Eto’o, has predicted his former club, Chelsea, to win Saturday’s Champions League final against Manchester City.
Eto’o, who featured for the Blues in the 2013/2014 season, is delighted that Thomas Tuchel’s side has qualified for their first Champions League final since 2012.
Although City is considered an overwhelming favorite for the game, Eto’o feels Chelsea has every chance of leaving the city of Porto as European champions.
“I am happy to see my old club Chelsea qualify for the Champions League final once again,” Eto’o told Goal.
“For some, Manchester City is the favorite to lift the trophy, but in my opinion when it comes to a final, there is no such thing as favorites. It is just one game, so anything is possible.
“Time and time again, we have seen teams arrive at a final unfancied,” he added, “only to leave as champions.”
