Despite the Premier League champions almost facing relegation this season, they have saved their best performances for Europe and face Atletico Madrid later this month in the quarter-final.
Bayern Munich CEO Rummenigge claims any of the eight remaining clubs can go all the way to the final in Cardiff and win, apart from Leicester.
The Sun reports that Rummenigge told Corriere dello Sport:”Spanish clubs have won the Champions League over the last three years.”

“I think that this season it will be more difficult because any team in the quarter-finals can win it, except from Leicester probably.”
“It’s hard to say who is the favourite now, Juve are very strong I’m not sure Barcelona will qualify.”
Rummenigge was full of praise for Juventus star Paulo Dybala.
Rummenigge said:“There are lot of good players out there. I’m thinking of Juventus’ Dybala for example."
"Trouble is, big players are not going to be sold unless you spend crazy money.
"Nobody sell big players. The big difference between my times and these times is that when I was playing there was always a reachable price-tag."
