The ex-Barcelona, Milan and Birmingham ace thinks Lyon are the logical favourites, but believes Bordeaux are well equipped to surprise them.
“Lyon seem to be the favourite, but so many things can happen during the match," he told But magazine. "I will tell you my opinion, straight from my heart; Bordeaux will win 2-1. Unfortunately, I won't be at Stade de France, but in front of my TV and behind Les Girondins."
He also stated that they should not be overwhelmed by the setting, as France's premier football stadium is "not that impressive":

“I hope that the importance of the match won't scare Les Girondins," he continued. "There are no reasons for that. The Stade de France isn't that impressive.
“Of course, France won the World Cup there, but when you experience that from outside, you don't see this place as a mystical one. Honestly, I never felt totally comfortable in that stadium, the fans are too far away from the pitch. As a player, I preferred to play at Parc des Princes or Stade Velodrome because they breath football."
