United 3 – 1 Barcelona

pah! PAH! PAAAAHHHHH!!

I was going for 2-1, then thought, eff it, we’ll stuff ‘em and pompously made it 3-1, noticing that Brett was backing the same scoreline. Then I went to lunch where I was served by a Spanish Barcelona fan who made the “pah” sound when I told him my prediction. He’s going for 2-1 Barcelona, which is the score I fear most, as it seems very very plausible.

However, the “pah” sound made me indignant, so 3-1 it is. Barca to score first, after 10 minutes. Plenty of early pressure culimating in Messi’s, and Barca’s, only goal of the match. We’ll hold out against the Barca Barrage until 40 minutes when Rooney crashes one in, against the run of play.

Antonio Valencia

Valencia celebrates his winning goal

The second half will start cagily, but on 60 minutes Valencia will power through the Barca defence and calmly slot one beyond Valdes. He will celebrate by choosing not to smile. Barca hit the post, have a good shout for a penalty turned down, before Hernandez finishes the job on 85 minutes to break Barcelona hearts.
