Rio Ferdinand, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard all believe Real Madrid will win the Champions League this season.

Real reached the quarter-finals of the competition on Tuesday with a 2-1 victory away at PSG.

Zinedine Zidane’s side are looking to defend the trophy they won in 2016 and 2017, and three BT Sport pundits believe they are more than capable.

Perhaps the ridiculous statistics of Cristiano Ronaldo persuaded Ferdinand, Gerrard and Lampard.

The trio were asked who they expected to win the Champions League, and the response was unanimous.

“Real Madrid, simply because of the experience and the Ronaldo factor,” Ferdinand said.

“Liverpool have a chance but Real are rightly favourites,” was Gerrard’s reply.

“I have to agree but it is still very hard to predict,” was Lampard’s response.
