Champions League news: Manchester Utd and Barcelona’s starting line-ups
The 22 men who will contest the biggest prize in club football
Last Wednesday, our friends in the Spanish press kindly revealed the starting line-ups for tonight’s Champions League final.
We may have chuckled at their startling clairvoyance, but they probably weren’t far off naming the 22 players who will be on the pitch for kick-off. The only change comes in the Barcelona left-back position: the Spanish favoured Seydou Keita over Sylvinho, probably on the basis that he has played more games. The Malian, however, has reacted to the propsect of playing out of position in the fashion of a big girl’s blouse, so we now believe ex-Arsenal star Sylvinho will start ahead of him.
