Riyad Mahrez believes that everything is in place for Manchester City to win the Champions League this season.
The Covid-19 pandemic shut down football in Europe in March but it is hoped that the competition can return in August.
City have a strong chance of reaching the quarter-finals of the competition after their 2-1 win away to Real Madrid in February’s last-16 first leg, and Mahrez says there is no reason why they can’t lift the trophy for the first time in the club’s history.
“I think it is a good time to win the Champions League,” the 29-year-old said. “We have the team, we have the manager, we have everything, so it is a good time.
“I don’t know if we are the best, but we are good enough to win it. The Champions League is difficult, everyone wants to win it, so it is going to be a big battle.”
