Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon feels Barcelona are the favourites to win the Champions League this season.

The Italian goalkeeper was on the losing side of last season’s Champions League final against the Catalans.

Barcelona have scored the most goals in the competition this season and Buffon believes they might become the first team to win back to back titles.

“It’s difficult to say. The season goes for 11 months and there are moments of elation and moments of suffering,” Buffon said.

“At this point in time I think there is no team that have more chance of winning the title than Barcelona.

“But if you think back to last year, until December Barcelona were a very strong team, a squad to be feared, but they didn’t shine.

“Maybe at that point Bayern Munich or Real Madrid were seen as favourites ahead of Barcelona. That means that over 11 months a lot can change in terms of the odds and your chances of winning.
