Barcelona will not be crowned Champions of Europe in Wembley yet again. This season, Wembley will entertain a forgotten giant and a giant which has suffered repeated heartbreak in the final.
Last season the calls for an all Spanish final at Wembley from the fans were huge. This was almost shameful, considering that there is no greater view than watching the home fans celebrate the homecoming of their team. Football was coming home; Bayern München was coming home; the Champions League was coming home. But somehow, somewhere, between Arjen Robben’s penalty miss and Didier Drogba’s fatal kiss, the trophy slipped under Bayern’s nose and traveled on a plane to London.
This time, the trophy is sitting in London. But it is set to travel in the opposite direction. The only remaining question is whether it will head to the heartland of German football, the Ruhr region, or the heartland of heartbreak, Bavaria. Bavaria has not witnessed too much heartbreak this season aside from the crushing relegation of Greuther Fürth. It has collected enough memories to last a lifetime from this season.
After downing Manchester United at Old Trafford, Manchester City will be looking to produce a similar performance against Chelsea in the semi-final of this season’s FA Cup at Wembley
Beating Manchester United at their own backyard is an achievement any side can be proud of. The achievement becomes even more special for a side like City that for almost two decades, could only look in envy over the success their neighbours had. However, the winds are clearly changing in Manchester with the ‘Blue moon’ rising.
Last weekend, Roberto Mancini’s side beat Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford in a vital Premier League encounter. The result means that the cash-laden side trails their bitter rivals by 12 points at the top of the table with just seven games left to play for.
Samba giants Brazil square off against the Three Lions in a much anticipated friendly match on Wednesday. Midfield battles could decide the game.
England in particular will take this tie seriously ahead of their World Cup qualifiers in March. Both the teams bolster some amazing attacking talents but the match may be ultimately decided on which team dominates the midfield.
Following injury to Manchester united man Michael Carrick his fellow teammate Tom Cleverly is expected to replace him in the starting lineup, with Arsenal prodigy Jack Wilshere and captain Steven Gerrard likely to partner him in the middle of the park.
The best thing about this trio is the flexibility they offer, all three players are capable of playing the holding as well as the advanced roles. This gives Roy Hodgson the option of using a 4-3-3 formation.
Cardiff City and Liverpool will clash on Sunday with the Carling Cup trophy at stake. Here’s a recap of how the two teams made it to Wembley.
Cardiff City’s road to the 2012 Carling Cup final at Wembley
First Round – August 10, 2011: Oxford United 1-3 (a.e.t.) Cardiff City
• Conway gave Cardiff City the lead within the first quarter of an hour but Oxford United equalized after 30 minutes. Both sides failed to take the lead during normal time so extra-time football was needed. Whittingham (98’) and Jarvis (121’) settled things on a positive note for the visitors.
Statistics related to the Wembley Stadium simply expose an odd truth about Liverpool. Some may even call it “shameful”…
The Merseyside Reds have a jinx to break and “Captain Planet” is keen to help his team reach the new Wembley at last. Manchester United can boast of having made 11 trips to the new home of English football even though there have been mixed results. Chelsea, meanwhile, have played at Wembley 9 times already since the stadium opened 4 years ago.
Take Liverpool’s local rivals Everton and check through their records. You will find that the Toffees have featured at Wembley a couple of times. Interestingly, as many as 60 different clubs have entered the new Wembley stadium. But out of this long list, the name of Liverpool is nowhere to be found!
They might have been outclassed two years ago in Rome, but Nani believes that Man United will use that disappointment to bounce back against Barca at Wembley.
28th of May will be the date where Manchester United get a clear shot of revenge at Barcelona for what they caused at Rome in 2009. Pep Guardiola's men were the more spectacular team on that day as Barcelona beat United 2-0 to lift the Champions League trophy.
Two years on, things have certainly evolved to a standard as far as Manchester United are concerned. They have lost key players but the strength within the team and the bond among the players has emerged to a whole new level. And for that reason only, Nani believes that whatever heartbreak they suffered in 2009 will now be their prime motivator ahead of the clash at Wembley,
Manchester United will be competing in their third UEFA Champions League final in 4 seasons on May 28, 2011. How did the Reds make it to Wembley to face Barcelona? Live Soccer TV recaps their journey.

Manchester United’s run in the group stages of the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League produced the following statistics: 3 away matches, 3 away victories; 6 matches played and only 7 goals scored but also 1 goal conceded and up to 5 clean sheets.

As Live Soccer TV commences its coverage of the much awaited Barcelona vs Manchester United 2011 UEFA Champions League final, we offer you a recap of the Catalans’ road to Wembley.
Champions League 2011 Group Stages: No Defeat For Favourites Barcelona
From match-day 1, Barcelona always looked certain of reaching the knock-out stages of this season’s UEFA Champions League tournament with quite a lot of ease. Greek giants Panathinaikos suffered the mesmerizing cruelty of Barcelona’s distinctive possessive game as the Catalans kicked off their campaign by beating them 5-1 on home soil.
Later on, Panathinaikos went on to lose the second leg 3-0. Now if Rubin (away in Russia) and København (away in Demark) created a few headaches to Barcelona, they couldn’t prevent the 2009 Champions League winners from securing the top spot in Group D.
At the Camp Nou, resilient Rubin bowed to Barca’s authority under a 2-0 defeat in December 2010. The story had been exactly the same for København 2 months before.
Former Man United captain Roy Keane has backed them by stressing that United have what it takes to beat Barcelona at Wembley
Wembley will be the place. But overall, it will be a repeat of the 2009 Champions League final at Rome as Barcelona get ready to take on Manchester United later this month. However, Cristiano Ronaldo is not amongst the ranks at United and Roy Keane believes that the score line will be different this time around.
Barcelona have been magnificent this season but Keane pointed out that United's collective performance as a team has been great this season and that could be vital in the match against the mighty Catalans.
Tonight's match means more than just the Premier League title as far as Manchester United are concerned. Live Soccer TV explains.
How many times have Manchester United done this over the past few years? With Cristiano Ronaldo in the side, the lifted the Champions league trophy in 2008. A year after that they suffered a defeat in the Champions League final at Rome, thanks to Barca's recent rise to prominence under Pep Guardiola. Then, they lost their Portuguese talisman and while many expected United to be a shadow of the team with Ronaldo in it, players like Antonio Valencia, Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez have ensured that the Devils remain a competitive side.
Qualifying for their 3rd Champions League final in four years is definitely a massive feat for Sir Alex Ferguson's men. While they have had lots of lucky moments this season, consistency has really been United's key to success so far. Not forgetting the presence of oldies like Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.
As we prepare for Schalke vs Manchester United tonight, Live Soccer TV previews five magical players that could send them into the Champiosn league final at Wembley
Manchester United have always had this patient virtue of trusting in players who perform together as a team. Ever since Sir Matt Busby was at the helm about half a century ago. The Busby Babes like they were hailed, represented something like a finished article at that time. The magic and spirit in the squad was super strong that even the Munich disaster in 1958 failed to stop them from entering the FA Cup Final that very same season, nor win the Champions League ten years after losing almost their whole squad.
It has always been a fundamental aspect of the legacy at Old Trafford. There is a believe here that no one is bigger than the club. However, it is the collective team spirit of the United players that has seen them win games week in, week out. Nonetheless, the Red Devils are also capable of producing some magical individual moments, which by all means can win them matches.

Tonight, there will be a repeat of the 2010 Champions League final and Jose Mourinho has encouraged his former side to beat the Germans once again.
“Inter? I’m always with them,” said the Real Madrid coach while talking to Italian magazine Il Corriere dello Sport.
“And I’ll be against Bayern Munich as I’d be against any other team that plays against Inter. I think the game will be difficult, but...”
