Soccer betting will feature one of the top sporting events of the entire year as Manchester United will meet FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League title match. Soccer betting fans will have the ultimate choice in this UEFA Champions League matchup. Manchester United has the best defense in the UEFA while FC Barcelona has the best offense.
Manchester United, in addition to that defense, also has a soccer betting legend as it’s leader with Sir Alex Ferguson. The long time manager led Manchester United to the UEFA Champions League title last year and this year’s Final will be an attempt for a repeat and his third overall UEFA championship for his career. With a Manchester United soccer betting win over FC Barcelona, Ferguson would join Liverpool FC manager Bob Paisley as the most successful in European Cup history.
The 67 year old Ferguson decided to postpone retirement and has shown no signs of slowing down. In fact Ferguson is running a soccer betting juggernaut that just captured its third consecutive domestic league title. He has a total of 22 major soccer betting trophies. His performance at Manchester United is a soccer betting legend as that franchise had gone 26 years without winning a league title before he transformed it.
One of the keys to Ferguson’s soccer betting is his reputation for intensity and his absolute hatred of losing. His players remarked on how red in the face he will become after a rare soccer betting defeat.
FC Barcelona has a powerful offense led by Samuel Eto’o, Lionel Messi, and Thierry Henry. Manager Josep Guardiola’s team scored a high 18 goals in the Group stage of the UEFA. After finishing first in Group C they went on to win the first knock out round over Olympique Lyonnais, and then the quarterfinals over Bayern Munchen, and then the semi finals over FC Chelsea.
The matches against Chelsea were good preparation for Manchester United as FC Barcelona came up against a strong defensive team that forced them to tone down their normal high flying offense, which is what they can also expect against Sir Alex’s group.
