The draws for the second round of the Champions League was done on Monday morning, with Chelsea pitted against Atletico Madrid.

There are a number of tough games to be played in the round of 16, but former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf has maintained that German champions Bayern Munich will eventually end up as champions.

“Who is going to win the Champions League? Bayern Munich, again,” Leboeuf told ESPN.

Meanwhile, former West Ham goalkeeper Shaka Hislop also agreed with Leboeuf, as he added: “If I was going to put some money on someone to win the Champions League right now, I’d still go Bayern Munich, you know.”

Leboeuf also revealed that he was unimpressed by Manchester City’s performance against Manchester United as he insists that the lack of fans in the stadiums have taken a bit of intensity from the game.

“Again, it’s very hard to understand what happened to Manchester City,” said Leboeuf.

“The way they played, they way they didn’t play, in fact. The way they didn’t want to play and the lethargy that we talked about in so many games we say with top teams.

“It’s like players are not capable of doing better than they do now, are getting tired, are getting bored of the fact they are 2,000 people or nobody, like we saw in Manchester and they’re not capable of giving the extra they need like they normally do to be at the top.

“That’s the main concern about every club, it’s not especially Manchester City, but we see nothing.

“Nothing we can complain, because they drew. They didn’t lose. When you have a bad game at least you draw. It can happen, it happens maybe too often but it happens.”
