May 3, 2011 4:18am CST
Looking forward to tonight and tomorow's game gives a surtain amount of excitement because the posibility of the final's teams. Today starting at 20:45 GMT first up will be the "war" between FC Barcelno's Josep Guardiola and Real Madrid's Jose Mourinho witch will end tonight after a 4th game thriller that will result in one winner and one loser. After a 2-0 upset in Madrid the catalans are looking confident for tonight's Nou Camp match-up. Not a big suprise is that both teams come from defeats in this weekend Primera Liga fixtures, Real losing 2-3 at home with Real Zaragoza and Barcelona losing 1-2 at Real Sociedad. The players missing the game are: From Barcelona:Abidal, Iniesta, Maxwell, Adriano and Bojan. For Real Madrid: Khedira and Fernando Gago. Even if a big upset is hard to imagine a 2-0 or 3-1 win for Real will be enough. Fact:Real Madrid has won twice in this stage of the competion against Barcelona in 1960 and 2002.

I hope and I think that Barça will win the match and Barça will play the final at Wembley VS Manchester United. Now it's raining in Barcelona, therefore, the field sure that will be wet, this game conditions will make that the ball will run very very fast. This is good for Barça because we can remember that last week, in Madrid, the field was like a jungle with a very dry grass. Moreover, Madrid have to attack (I think that they can't play only with counterattacks). If both teams plays with the ball control, Barça sure that will win the match because Barça is the best team around the world doing a control playing. Aditionally, Mourinho, Sergio Ramos, Pepe and Khedira won't be in the field. They are good defensive players and the coach, who is very important for all the tactics. And finally, Barça plays at home with all the public singing and animating during the entire match. For these reasons, I predict 4-0 :)

I hope today is all about football and not about controversies. I am also hoping not to see ugly scenes on the pitch. The chosen one is banned from the sidelines and would be watching the match from the stands, so it would take some shine off the drama. But I think Barca have a nice 2-0 lead and should still go through, though I expect Real to come at them with all they have in this match. I expect another Real player to be sent off as well!!
