Akpoborie Tips Barcelona To Retain Champions League Title

Former Nigeria international Jonathan Akpoborie has tipped Barcelona to become the first team to win the UEFA Champions League back-to-back.

AC Milan were the last team to win Europe's elite competition back-to-back, in the 1988/1989, 1989/1990 seasons, when it was then known as the European Champions Cup.

Lionel Messi' s brace gave Barcelona a 2-0 victory ahead of the reverse fixture at the Nou Camp.

Reacting to Barcelona's performance on Tuesday night, Akpoborie described them as the best team presently.

"I think we just saw the first team that will win the Champions League back-to- back. Scintillating Barcelona," Akpoborie, who starred in the German Bundesliga for years, tweeted on Wednesday. 

"Without doubt the best team in the world right now."
