The Champions League is the arena where every top player gets to showcase their skills to a larger world audience and in the case of the 2011 finals the world waited eagerly to find out if Barcelona had any serious challenge to their clear superiority. The Spain ticket bureau prides the Champions League as one of its prestigious ticketing opportunities.
The 2011 Champions League displayed how far ahead of the pack Barcelona have jumped in the European football ranks. They had already disposed of Real Madrid after an impressive 2-0 away win and a subsequent 1-1 draw. Real looked frustrated and volatile in a game that saw Barca play their pass and move football to the highest level. Barcelona’s mesmerising possession game often drives teams to lose their discipline, due to the fact that the opposition get frustrated at being ‘passed to death’. Many people enjoyed Barca’s route to the final, courtesy of the Spain ticket bureau.
Man United would prove to be the next big challenge but were clearly outclassed by Barcelona’s fluid passing and movement. United are consistently one of Europe’s top sides, but even Rooney and co looked sorely out of their depth in a game where Barcelona took 63% of the possession and easily won their fourth Champions League trophy.
The 3-1 result probably doesn’t do justice to how capably Barca dominated United. Barcelona scored first through Pedro, but for a while United looked like they might make a contest of it when Rooney equalised in the 34th minute to set up a captivating second half. Barcelona’s seemingly inevitable victory came through goals by the superlative Lionel Messi and the clinical David Villa.
Barcelona look set to dominate the Champions League for years to come and will probably go some way to matching Real Madrid’s record nine victories. The current Barcelona side is the best for a generation and have changed the way European football is played. Tickets are available for Barcelona games at the Spain ticket bureau.
