Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic is very confident that the  Red Devils can win the Champions League this season as rivals Manchester City run away with the Premier League title.

United are second and 16 points behind champions-elect City in England but Jose Mourinho's men are in the last 16 of the Champions League.

After playing out a goalless draw in the opening leg at Sevilla, United welcome the LaLiga side to Old Trafford for the return fixture Tuesday.

 And Vidic – who won the Champions League and five Premier League trophies during his eight years in Manchester – feels United are equipped to succeed in Europe.

 "It's Man United. I know the Premier League is bigger, but I think the Champions League could happen," Vidic said via ESPN.

 "When the season started, I said that I thought United had more chance to win the Champions League than the Premier League because the players they signed didn't have the time to fit in.

 "Also, Mourinho is a tactical coach, knows Europe very well. He knows there are going to be scrappy games and how to get through them.

 "That's my belief. To win, you need a bit of luck, but there is a chance to get to the semi-final or final. You never know. And if you win a Champions League, the players start to believe. They think: 'OK, speak about me now.' Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, they will look different than now."
