I don’t need to tell you how important tonight’s game between Barcelona and Inter Milan is. Inter would love to go through because the haven’t reached a final of the Champion’s League since 1972 and haven’t won the trophy since 1965. Mourinho says Barcelona would love to go through because the final is being played in Madrid. Whatever the reasons, many eyes in Bigastro will be glued to TV sets tonight.
On the face of it Barcelona have an uphill battle having lost the game in Milan by 3 goals to 1. However, there are numerous permutations of how they can still win – the simplest being to score 2-0 tonight – not an impossible task for a team that have been proclaimed the best in Europe.
As you might expect, there are all sorts of rumours going round about why Inter Milan managed to perform so well against Barcelona including a suggestion that Mourinho co owns a restaurant with the referee from the match. I understand a lot of crucial decisions did go Milan’s way.
Come on people, it is only a game albeit it one with a lot of money not to mention pride at stake. By tomorrow it will all be over one way or the other. If it goes Barcelona’s way, expect to hear plenty of fireworks disturbing our peace later tonight.
