Live on Fox at 2 PM Eastern. Barcelona versus Manchester United. The best possible matchup. Do not miss this one. Seems like half of Barcelona has gone to London for the game. The other half is hanging out in the streets wearing all its Barça gear.
The key to the match is whether Barcelona can establish its passing game and control the ball. If they can play their game, forcing Man U back in its own half and passing and passing and passing, they will eventually score and win.
Man U has to disrupt Barça's game and play for the counterattack. Rooney and Chicharrito have the talent to score off the fast break. The best way to stop Barça is to man-mark Iniesta, I think. Don't let him be the bumper in a pinball game or you are going to lose.
Take a drink:
Every time Sergio Busquets falls down and covers his face with his hands, thrashing on the ground as if he'd been viciously elbowed.
Every time Villa blows an easy shot.
Every time Piqué dicks up a pass back to Valdés.
Every time Dani Alves gets caught downfield seventy yards behind the ball.
Every time Xavi and Iniesta pass the ball back and forth at least five times before actually doing anything.
Every time the Barça players surround the ref and start screaming at him in great indignation. Two drinks if they convince him to award somebody a yellow card.
You ought to be tanked by halftime.
