I’ll be on blogging live today so check back at the half for my comments. A few thoughts prior to kick-off:
1) Surprised to not see Rooney even make the bench and both Park & Nani starting. It points to a wide game from United as they’ll hope to pressure the Barca fullbacks.
2) Yaya has recovered from his ankle knock — big boost for Barcelona as he was very strong in the middle during the first leg and allowed Xavi to push forward
3) Henry is on the bench to start and will be expected to play the super-sub role today.
Talk to you at the half!
