Del Piero Predicts Real Madrid Would Win 2018/2019 UEFA Champions League

Alessandro Del Piero has said Cristiano Ronaldo deserves huge credit for Real Madrid's three successive Champions League titles and tipped Ronaldo's new club Juventus as potential winners this season.

Many expected Asensio to take the number 7 shirt at Real Madrid this summer, only for Mariano Diaz, who returned to the club from Lyon in August, to be given the iconic shirt instead. "So it surprises you a bit, but that's football for you".

Continuing his explanation as to why Juventus can secure European success this season, Bernadeschi added: "It's a particular competition where things can change from one moment to the next and a single error can be decisive against top class opposition. If we are still talking about tests for a player older than 20 or 21 then we are off track".

The 33-year-old's start in Serie A has been a little slow considering he has not scored in three league outings, though De Vrij does not doubt the impact Ronaldo will have on Italian football.

The former Liverpool man spoke of the pressure experienced at a top club and said that it can be hard to find time to enjoy individual successes.

"It's not that Barcelona players feel a lot of pressure, but being at Barcelona limits the possibility of enjoying the match you won on Sunday because on Wednesday you already have another one", he said.

"We are perhaps the favourites to win the Champions League, even if it won't be easy, because it's a completely different tournament to Serie A or the Coppa Italia".

"In the long run, you start to remember the good times".

Suarez expects to be back in action this weekend for Barca when they face Real Sociedad on Saturday.
