well it was a very ill mannered match with no of refreeing errors and in the end barcelona will meet manu in the final .that is a dream final that i wanted .although being a united fan barca will be tougher to beat but that will be some game .with ronaldo and messi showdown.
united might have upper hand as barca have some defenders injured and dani alvaes got a yellow card and will miss the final that will united some space on the flanks

I have a feeling it will be Barcelona who wins in the finals too. Man U plays more attacking football than Chelsea does so I think it will be a goal fest.

It is the dream final. And what a setting for it, the eternal city of Rome! I think no one can deny that United and Barca are currently the top two teams in Europe. What more can we ask for? Can't wait till the 27th!

United will surely miss Fletcher's industry against Xavi and Iniesta. He was our most effective player along with Ando and Carrick in cutting out Arsenal's fluent passing game in the midfield over the two legs. But then Barca will be without Alves and Abidal, their first choice fullbacks.

May the force be with United!

We have a Champion's League final today is it? Man U v.s. Barcelona?
Any predictions? I think Man U are the favs.
It could be anybody's game though.

Would never happen in a final. 4-4-1-1. Another midfielder, probably Giggs. Gives ManU and extra man in the midfield and more width to exploit the weak flanks of Barca. Guardiola will definitely play 4-3-3. I am a Barca fan. However, I think ManU will have too much for them. It will be doughty game, and no El Classico or 'goal fest'. I cannot see Barca scoring unless ManU make a mistake. Ronaldo might, if he stays on his feet

ManU have time and again failed with the 4-3-3 formation. moreover it denies them an additional striker and you cant count out berbatov or tevez in a final.

It should be an intriguing match as both team are know for their attacking potential. i think instead of trying to contain the opposition ManU should look at playing their own game, that will give them the title.

Coverage starts at 11:30 PM on Ten Sports. The match begins at 12:15 AM. Also, Zee Sports might also be showing it since they have a tie-up with Ten Sports.
