Man Utd will fail if they try to match them. Their best chance to beat Barca is to "Arsenal" them and hit them on the counter with long balls to the top, since Barca hold an even higher line than Arsenal. Man Utd is the best team in Europe at counterattacking.

I'm a Barca fan. Don't really like Man Utd too much, but I respect what they do. I'm neutral for this one. May the better team on the day win.

Being British I will obviously root for the English club, but this Barcelona is a talented squad however they are certainly not unbeatable.

It will be an enjoyable match, if it is even half as good as the Swansea vs. Forest match lastnight then it would be considered a classic final.
