Who wins, Man U or Barcelona?

All right, we are about three hours from kickoff. Who wins in this titantic battle of soccer $$ vs. soccer $$?

This won’t be just another game on the pitch. Manchester United and Barcelona have millions of bucks at stake here. On this side of the pond, where we are still pretty much considered the Little Leagues of soccer, we just don’t get the interest in such a match.

Oh, maybe we do a little more than we did five years ago. But then, Game 3 of the World Series probably doesn’t cause much of an uproar on the streets of Madrid either.

Prediction: Barcelona 2, Man U. 1
