Desailly says: “The French league is getting interesting but it is a bit of a dilemma for the French club. It is more important for Lyon and Marseille to finish in the top three in Ligue 1 than going on a European adventure and in the first round of matches both Lyon and Marseille face tricky away ties. So I’m going against them and backing Ajax and Olympiacos to win.”

Gullit says: “Manchester City looks like an outsider in this season’s Champions League but Mancini knows the Italian game well so they should get past Napoli. The Italian side will struggle here and City should win rather easy. I think the Premier League side can win by three goals. Ajax vs Lyon is a much tighter match but the Dutch side have home-soil and the pace to beat Lyon. Secondly Ajax will be desperate for three points with Real Madrid the massive favourite in the group.”
