Barcelona vs Man United
At 2 PM (ET) two of the greatest soccer teams will take the field at Wembley Stadium to play in the UEFA Champions League final. This is a rematch of the final of 2009 in which Barcelona won 2-0.
In 2009 Man United relied heavily on Cristiano Ronaldo but they have changed a few things around. Ronaldo is gone but Man United are a gritty bunch. Wayne Rooney has paired himself with Javier Hernandez (Chicarito) and they are dangerously effective. In my opinion the best defender in the world today belongs to Man United, Nemanja Vidic.
Barcelona possesses the greatest soccer player around, Lionel Messi. He is paired with Pedro and David Villa. Andres Iniesta is a player that can really hurt you if you put all your effort in trying to stop Lionel Messi. Barcelona is a strong side from top to bottom.
I think this is going to be a real exciting game. It is going to be great to see the two best teams in the world go at it on a Saturday afternoon.
