"Manchester City is the favorite due to their squad and mainly because they won the Champions League last season. But surprises can happen in the final stages of the tournament. As of today, they are the favorites.

The goal is to fight until the end. As for the semi-finals, we can achieve that without too much pressure. The goal is to advance through the group stage, the round of 16, and the quarter-finals.

Real Madrid will fight until the end. We are not the favorites. City doesn't consider themselves favorites either. Still, the fact that they won the tournament last season makes them favorites," Carlo Ancelotti, quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

It's worth noting that in the previous season, Real Madrid was eliminated by Manchester City in the semi-finals of the Champions League. In the away match, the Madrid team lost without chances, 0:4.
