ManU will win it, 2-1 or 3-1
Barca are great, but they are vulnerable where it hurts most, the back line and in the goal; ManU have a better bench and a much better keeper

Personally I could care less who wins (though I would prefer ManU), but if Barca are able to use the possession play that frustrated the Red Devils in 2008 to great effect, then we should expect a similar result. The game is Barcelona's to lose...

Great result for Barca. I think people were crazy to think that Utd could have gotten anything out of that game. Great spectacle for the neutral to watch.

Barca played sublimely, ManU much less so. Vidic was nowhere to be found and Barca's second goal was due to his lack of awareness.
Barca's back line, normally its weak link, were strong & solid, while Manu's back line, normally rock solid, were the weaker today (although Evra played well).
And AF did not put the best side he could have on the pitch...and it showed.
All hail FC Barcelona, deserved champions.

As much as I despise Barcelona, that performance was from another planet. I felt bad for Rooney, he seemed to be the only player in white trying

Pathetic showing from United. Utterly abysmal.

- 37% possession
- 3 shots on goal
- 16 fouls

Save for Rooney, United were taken to the cleaners by Barca.

yep they showed they are a class above, how an earth is europes elite gonna catch up with them?! man united are more than likely the 2nd best side in europe and barca demolished them easily, so teams are gonna have to invest if they are wanting to win the champions league any time in the near future

Arsenal face a tough champions league qualifier against Udinese, gonna be a hard game I think, Udinese finished 4th in the Serie A last season, and they are playing some great football, gonna be a good game
