The picture above is what I would have liked to see. I would have liked Man U to play hard and be able to say they won. That did not happen, it seemed at times that United didn’t want to play the game. Yeah, there were a few bad calls against them and some that went unheard that should have been called. Although United played better than 2009 in Rome; they still did not have what it takes to win. The European Cup would go to Barcelona instead.
Lionel Messi considered one of the best players in the world, scored his first goal for Barcelona on English soil. This is Barcelona’s fourth Champions League win. This will not end the arguments about them being named among the best teams ever but it helps their case.
Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola could tell that United would not be able to respond to the 3 point lead. Ro be honest anyone watching the game felt it was over after the 2nd score. His team had played a better game and two of the points were basically gifts.
