League legend, Alan Shearer has tipped Lionel Messi driven Barcelona to win the UEFA Champions League this season.
Shearer trusts Messi will lead Ernesto Valverde’s side to win the Europe top-flight trophy this crusade.
Barcelona will handle Manchester United on Wednesday night in the Champions League quarter-last first-leg tie at Old Trafford, yet Shearer trusts the La Liga champions will be unreasonably solid for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
“You can’t discount Manchester United after the manner in which they battled back to beat Paris Saint-Germain,” Shearer revealed to The Sun.
“Be that as it may, I simply figure Barcelona will have a lot for them more than two amusements – essentially due to that person Lionel Messi.
“I expect it will be Messi who has the effect against United and he is the reason I think Barca will maybe proceed to win the entire thing.”
Shearer included: “And I figure it will be the equivalent for Ajax against Juventus on account of Cristiano Ronaldo.
“You would already be able to envision a Juve versus Barca last, with two of the best footballers we have ever observed, clashing by and by.”
