This week, we see one of the biggest games in English Football history. The first ever all English Champions League Final, contested by Manchester United and Chelsea.
Manchester United's journey to the final has been a very steady one, pulling out victory after victory. They are currently undefeated in the Champions League this season. They have come across a variety of teams. Dynamo Kiev, AS Roma (group stage and quarter finals), Sporting Lisbon, Olympique Lyonnais and Barcelona have all fallen to United this season.
Chelsea's journey to the final has been eventful. They have been defeated this season, by Fenerbache. They managed to turn that quarter final tie around at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have manged to get past Fenerbache, Schalke 04, Valencia, Rosenborg, Olympiakos and Liverpool.
So, both United and Chelsea have faced some extremely difficult teams this season. But now they face each other. May 21st, Moscow.
United has Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Anderson, Nani, Michael Carrick and Owen Hargreaves to name a few. Chelsea has Frank Lampard, Michael Ballack, Didier Drogba, Joe Cole, Salomon Kalou, Nicolas Anelka to name a few.
All of the aforementioned players are undoubtedly among the great in their separate positions, but who will triumph?
Personally, I want Chelsea to win it. Not only because I am a fan of the club, but because I want revenge for losing out on the Premier to United. But it would be fitting for Man. Utd. to win because it would be the greatest tribute to the players who died in the Munich Air Disaster 50 years ago.
Who do I think will win? Chelsea. It won't be pretty, and for fans of high scores this one will probably be boring for you. I would see the game being won in a 1-0 score, late in the 2nd, or perhaps in extra time.
What do you think? You all have your opinions, you might write your own articles on it. Comment on this one. Go on. Use that little thing below.
I urge everyone to watch this game as it will be filled with a lot of history.
