Barcelona vs Manchester United: 2011 Champions League Final Is Serious Business

May 13, 2011 By Isaac Asante
The Barcelona vs Manchester United 2011 Champions League final at the Wembley Stadium on May 28 will be a match with multiple aspects for both Barca and United.
In short, it is a match everyone is looking ahead to, subsequent to the controversial manner in which Barcelona reached the final. Barcelona got their name registered in the competition’s last fixture via a two-legged Clasico matchup that saw them impose themselves on Real Madrid through a series of dives and partial decisions from the official.

The first leg on April 27 especially built a lot of tension among fans from both Spanish parties, and it even had a high impact on general football followers, who questioned the fair-mindedness of those controlling the sport. Pep Guardiola’s men were already accused of robbing Chelsea back in 2009 in the Champions League semi-finals; a deed that paved the way for them to defeat the Red Devils in Rome so as to lift their second continental cup in the first decade of the on-going century.

Although Madrid made everything in their power this time around to put justice at the centre of the issue, it was Barca who got the favour in the end—hence explaining how they obtained their tickets to face Manchester United in another “fixed” Champions League final. Unlike their opponents though, the Mancunians went through peaceful ties against Schalke 04 in the Last 4.

The British giants progressed into the ultimate stage after humiliating the Germans 6-1 on aggregate, and it seems their next task of taking on the world’s most “dangerous” side has arrived in timely fashion. Will United further prove why they are special by accomplishing their mission with success?

Since the taking of Coach Guardiola at the Barcelona club, a remarkably strange logic has emerged: any team that defeats Los Cules in a knockout contest ends up as the competition’s champion. Of course, that is if the Azulgranas themselves do not finish their run as winners.

In 2010, the then treble winners lost to Sevilla in the Copa del Rey and to Inter Milan in the Champions League. Both the Andalusians and the Italians eventually became Spanish Cup victors and European champions, respectively.

This season, Real Madrid were strong enough to break their cupless curse; but that did not happen until they overpowered Barcelona in the 2011 Copa del Rey final. Now, it is Sir Alex Ferguson’s turn to try his luck and defeat the Catalans for the 2011 Champions League title in the Barcelona vs Manchester United final.

The old manager lost cheaply to the Spanish titans back in 2009, and being aware that reigning at the Wembley Stadium on May 28 could be a great achievement to close a fruitful managing career, Fergie is certainly not ready to repeat the mistakes that brought destruction on his army at the Stadio Olimpico. In actual fact, repeating the attainment they earned in the semis of the 2008/2009 season when they narrowly edge past Barca is the only thing United will have to do.

What matters after all is nothing but the final result, and this goes without saying that how the Red Devils get their end product will not matter at the end of the day. This same verity applies to La Liga’s newly-crowned champions, and presumably by now, the public is well conscious about how much Barca can give and do to find what they long for.

For avid soccer fans, the upcoming showdown at the Wembley Stadium will be empowered by a combination of excitement and greatness. For the teams in action though, it will be a battle putting to the test their mentality, experience, self-respect, devotion to their supporters and physical abilities.

It is needless to remind that the ensuing spells of the losing team will include a significant shortfall from a financial prospect, while the advantages of the winning side will be virtually uncountable. With all the elements heating up the clash as the big moment approaches, it is understandable to believe that the Barcelona vs Manchester United final of the 2011 Champions League could be one of the most memorable matches ever.
