Some years, it seems like the UEFA Champions League is one part football, four parts money and twelve parts hype. This year, however, the hype surrounding the Champions League Final certainly seems justified. Manchester United v. Barcelona. Champions of England v. Champions of Spain. Both clubs are goliaths. Both clubs have already won two domestic trophies. Both clubs have the biggest of the big-name players in football: Ronaldo, Messi, Rooney, Henry, etc. Both clubs have proven themselves to be champions this season.
Only one question remains: which club will top off their season with a European Cup? Will Barcelona’s potent attack prove unstoppable again, or will the Red Devils’ depth and defensive pressure win the day as it did in the semifinals a year ago?
