FOOTBALL By | February 25th 2015

Chelsea are reportedly the UK’s favourite club when it comes to the Champions League, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

The New York-based newspaper are reporting findings from Forza Football – a Swedish fan app – which says more people in the UK want Jose Mourinho’s side to win the Champions League ahead of the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and the other clubs who have reached this season’s last 16.

According to the report, Arsenal may miss out of the support of the UK, but are backed by those in Ireland, while Man City don’t appear to be favoured by any Euopean country.

Juventus are Europe’s most popular club, with fans in 21 of the 45 Uefa countries backing the Old Lady, including those in Italy, while European champions Real Madrid are the most popular club among just four nations.

La Liga rivals Barcelona are second to Juventus in terms of popularity, with the backing of 11 Uefa countries, while Bayern Munich are said to be cheered on by both Germany and Austria.
