Manchester United v Barcelona

Many of you have been waiting for this one and it's promising to live up to all the hype.  Champions League final betting odds for Barcelona v Manchester United are available at Sportingbet.com.

Both teams are listed with +150 odds (2.50 odds). 

From Reuters:

The last time two outstanding and supremely self-confident teams met in a Champions League final was arguably 1999, when Manchester United faced Bayern Munich. The problem then was that neither side had recent experience of a final. United in particular seemed overawed and it was only the last couple of minutes that rescued what was otherwise a pretty dire match.

Looking further back down the list, the eye is drawn to 1994, when a Barcelona side that had won the competition two years previously, and included Pep Guardiola in midfield, suffered a humbling 4-0 defeat by AC Milan, who had lost the 2003 final to Marseille.

You may argue that the final was too one-sided to be remembered as a classic, but the performance from Milan will go down as one of the great ones.

Will Barcelona, United or both be able to play to that sort of level in Rome on Wednesday? Will Iniesta, Xavi and Messi find the perfect weight and direction on those passes around the penalty area to cut the English defence in two? Will United's rampant counter-attacks make it another night to forget for Guardiola?

Whatever happens, I suspect we'll be talking about it for a long time... as long as the two teams stay true to themselves.

By the way, Sportingbet has plenty of Champions League Final betting prop odds for Barcelona v Manchester United available including the big payout potential on betting the final score.  4-2 pays out US$12500 for every US$100 bet on either side.  Those odds appear below and you can bet them at Sportingbet here
