Manchester United claimed the Barclays Premier League Champion for 2011. Barcelona claimed the Spanish League Champion. Next, both team will play for UEFA Champions League 2011 final on 28th of May 2011 at Wembley Stadion, England.
Both teams are doing great in their country league. Barcelona is the most impressive team with its short passing aggressive gameplay. Manchester United shows great mentality to achieve whatever they intend to. After struggling in the early season, Man Utd is consistently improving their play. Javier Hernandez completes the line of MU striker, essentially replacing the on fire Dimitar Berbatov by the end of the season. By the way, Berbatov is still the top scorer in Barclays Premier League this season.
Barcelona is very impressive. The attacking football they consistently play is one of the best in the world. With talented midfielder such as Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta, both played for Spain in the last World Cup Tournament, Barcelona performs the best football ever seen today. Lionel Messi is the central forward who has above average individual skill and is operating in the Barcelona frontline. Supported by David Villa and Pedro, they complete the three striker formation. At the defensive line, Carlos Puyol and Gerrard Pique stand as the best central defender in Spain.
Man Utd also sports balance team from the frontline to the back. Javier Hernandez is usually plotted as a single striker, with Wayne Rooney as supporting second striker but plays a little deeper in the midfield. The midfield is controlled by Michael Carrick as defensive midfield, and Ryan Giggs as playmaker. Sometimes Park Ji-sung is played to switch role with Giggs. Both can play as winger also. Antonio Valencia is another winger and sometimes is played as left defender. Nani is another winger that can suddenly fire long shots. The central defenders in MU defense line are also very strong. With Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand in the central defender position, MU suffered very few goals this season. Patrice Evra and Fabio also play well this season.
Overall this year Champions League final has been predicted since semifinals matches. This is a dream final. Who will get the 2011 Champions League title? May the best team win! Let’s watch a great soccer game!
