Barcelona vs Bayern Munich, UEFA Champions League Semi-Final 2nd Leg: Open Thread
Barcelona enter their home cauldron of Camp Nou today on a mission impossible, to try to overturn a 4-0 deficit to advance to the final of the 2012-13 UEFA Champions League Final.
If Barcelona wins on aggregate today, it’ll be one of the greatest comebacks in the history of the Champions League against a team that is firing on all cylinders and ready to take the crown as the best team in the world. As a result, this match could end up being a dead rubber or one of the most entertaining and open matches we’ve seen in years.
