As you all know, i'm a sports lover. I've been listening and reading what fanboys says about the current F.C Barcelona team. That "is the best team ever seen", "best team on history". I'm not a fan of FC Barcelona, neither of Real Madrid C.F, out of my beloved C.D Motagua (Honduras League) the only team i like since i was 8 years old is the ACF Fiorentina. I'm pretty young, but I like reading history, and sports history is included. I've watched some videos and read some standings, and for me, these are 5 teams that can beat the current FC Barcelona (18 titles in 10 years.)
I took just european teams, but here could appear other teams from Argentina, Brasil, Uruguay.
Making this post was really fun, it took me several hours (i'm on vacations, so, everyday is friday for me. ). Was really tough chosing just 5 teams, there are still amazing teams on Football history.
The order doesn't means anything.
This amazing team won 3 European Cups (Champions League) in a row. They were the pionneers of the "Total football" created by Stefan Kovac, which later become an example and a symbol of great football all around the world. This team had football superstars as Cruyff, Johnny Rep, Piet Keizer, Ruud Krol, Suurbier, Neesskens, Hulshoff and Murhen.

This team started just with british players. After 1977 when they won their first Europe Cup (Champions League), the Scottish Kenny Dalglish and Graeme Souness arrived to the team, and they become an amazing team. Bob Paisley was that amazing team's coach. They owned 24 tournaments.

After failing in the last European Cup, Jimmy McGrory became manager in 1965, as the club won the Scottish Cup, with Billy McNeill scoring the game winning goal. Following that season Celtic FC reached the semi finals of the Cup- Winner’s Cup, but lost on aggregate to Liverpool. However in 1967, the Celtic had the biggest season as they won every tournament in which they competed including the European Cup.
The team continued to dominate in European competitions during the 1970s, but they couldn't win the Champions League again.
This amazing squad won the Scotland league 9 times in a row.

It was 1986 and Silvio Berlusconi arrived to the A.C Milan, with a lot of money. Rijkaard, Guillin, Van Basten ,Franco Baresi, Maldini, Galli, Colombo, just to mention some of the icons of this team. The leader of this super squad was Arrigo Sacchi.
This team performed a great season in 1989's Champions League. In that Cup, they won to Real Madrid... 5-0!
Italian League (5): 1987/88, 1991/92, 1992/93, 1993/94, 1995/96. Italian SuperCup (4): 1988, 1992, 1993, 1994. Champions League (3): 1988/89, 1989/90, 1993/94 Intercontinental Cup (2): 1989, 1990. European SuperCup (3):1989, 1990, 1994
This team dominated Europe as we have never seen again. They won 5 European Cups (Champions League) in a row. Having players as Di Stefano, Puskas, Santamaria, Gento, Kopa, Del Sol, Rial, Alonso, Marquitos y Zarraga, was the dream of every coach.
