The latest clash of footballing titans takes place on English soil.
The players of the team that wins today’s final in London will be crowned European champions.
It is one of those occasions when football really is more than just a game.
“I am so excited and really confident. I have complete faith in Alex Ferguson, he is a tactical maestro” said one Manchester fan.
But there was confidence, too, on the Barca side. “I am a bit nervous but I do think we are going to win. We are top of our game, we have been all year and Manchester are no competition. We will win easily.” said one of the supporters of the Catalan club.
Fans from both sides have gathered in the UK capital to watch the final and enjoy the inevitable post-match party.
