In his presser Heynckes was asked which club he’d favour in the final four. The Bayern coach replied:
No matter which Spanish teams progress into the semifinals, Real or Barcelona, we can beat both.
I would like Jurgen Klopp, with his Liverpool team, to make it to the semi-finals.
Should Liverpool reach the semis, they’ll be the bookies’ outsider to win the trophy.
