Mourinho, however – who has a long and fractious history with Barcelona – believes Tata Martino’s men have slipped from their pedestal enough this season to give City a good chance.
Mourinho told ITV:
“Of course by history Barcelona is the favourite, but this Barcelona, this season, is showing that it is not the same in previous years.
“Of course they have [Lionel] Messi, he is special, and they have more than him. But I think this is the worst Barcelona of many many years, so City have a chance.”
