CAFCL: Akwa United can stun CR Belouizad in Algeria – Victor Ikpeba

Akwa United pipped CR Belouizdad 1-0 in Uyo on Sunday to begin their Caf Champions League campaign on a winning note.

Former Super Eagles forward, Victor Ikpeba believes Akwa United has what it takes to stun Algeria champions, CR Belouizad in the second leg of the CAF Champions League.

Recall that Ubong Friday scored the only goal of the game in the 87th to give the Nigerian side a goal advantage to take to Algeria.

Speaking on Monday Night Football Programme on Supersports, the Atlanta Olympic gold medalist, stated that he was delighted with Akwa United victory over CR Belouizad.

He believed that the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) titleholder can shock the North African club if they improve themselves tactically.

“I think it’s a great result for Akwa United. I am so happy for the team. I just hope they can improve themselves tactically to be able to overcome their North African counterpart.

“I believe Akwa United can shock CR Belouizad if they can concentrate for the whole of 90 minutes.”
