The former Real Madrid midfielder and coach and former Argentine international Bardano expressed his views on Real Madrid's Champions League grouping results. He believes that Real Madrid is not one of the favorites of the Champions League.
Valdano said: "Real Madrid is not among the favorites to win the Champions League. It is now in a transitional moment. It will be very difficult because you (to compete for the Champions League) depend on many things."
In his opinion, whether it is the elimination of Manchester City last season or the elimination of Ajax last season, they all illustrate the difficulty of winning the European Championship. Now, Bardano understands that Real Madrid is going through a stage of growth, betting on new football players, so compared with other giants, it is not an advantage.
