After yesterday’s final games in the Champions League round of 16, we now know which teams will be in the hat tomorrow morning to decide who will play who in the quarter-finals. But before tomorrow’s draw, I thought it’d be fun to fantasize a little and think about which two teams would be the dream Champions League Final this year.
The eight teams who have qualified for the quarter-finals are:
- Bayern Munich
- CSKA Moscow
- Inter Milan
- Manchester United
For me, a dream final would be Manchester United against Inter Milan. Consider all of the storylines. It would be Ferguson against Mourinho. Premier League against Serie A. Wesley Sneijder against Michael Carrick. Italy against England (which could easily end up being a semi-final or final or quarter-final between the two countries in this summer’s World Cup). And the list goes on and on.
It would also be a great tactical and enjoyable game to watch, both defensively and offensively.
What about you? What would be your dream Champions League Final?
