The Football fever in europe will reach a crescendo tonight when in a little under five hours time, Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona take on English Premiership side Arsenal in the Uefa Champions league final. Both teams have deservedly reached the Final having overcome several gritty teams en route. Arsenal having seen of european giants such as Real Madrid and Juventus and Barcelona having handed defeat to Benfica, Chelsea and Milan. Whereas Barca boast of a heady attacking line-up with Ronaldinho and Samuel Eto'o ( Lionel Messi fit but an uncertain start), Arsenal, on the other hand, have not conceded a goal in 10 matches and have stalwarts such as Sol Campbell and Ashley cole manning the defence in the company of Philippe Senderos, Flamini & Cesc Fabregas. It will be a high-voltage clash between attack & defence i'm sure!
I shall put my money on Barcelona, not only because they're a far more complete side than Arsenal – who sometimes rely too heavily on Thierry Henry with Robert Pires and Freddie Ljungberg , not that effective – but also because after having being crowned La Liga champions, they will be high on confidence. Aresenal, meanwhile will be beleaguered to an extent with the possibility of Henry leaving the club and other minor things. So I'll hedge my bets on Barca …that too with a 3-0 Victory! Go Barca Go!!!
