Pies predicts – Barcelona vs Man Utd, Champions League semi final first leg


23rd, April 2008

EMP-5880688.jpgPies has looked deep into its crystal match ball. This is how our team of footy-mad bloggers thinks tonight’s Barca vs Man Utd clash will pan out:
Ollie, Pies Ed.
“Fresh from predicting a 1-1 draw at Anfield last night – not an amazing feat, I admit – I can confidently say that I have no clue what’s going to happen tonight. On current form, Man Utd should win, but Barca have some big-name players who can raise their game when it counts, so this is tough to call. However, I’m going for a score draw.”
Prediction 2-2
Lee Coan, Chelsea Pies Ed.
“All I’ve heard all week is how easy this tie is for United. It’s Barca! Away! Not Burnley at Old Trafford. The stripy Spaniards will go two up, before Tevez plops in a crucial away goal with a lucky deflection off his massive face.”
Prediction 2-1

Sam Collins, Man Utd Pies Ed.
“United will have to play like Champions to beat Barcelona tonight. Barcelona aren’t having the best of times in the Spanish league at the moment – but write them off at your peril. Anything but a defeat in Spain tonight would be a good result and the never-say-die attitude they showed at Blackburn on Saturday and at other times this season will stand them in good stead if things start to go pear shaped at the Nou Camp. I predict a narrow Utd win.”
Prediction 1-2
Ritch Arrowsmith, Pies writer
“While everyone is writing off Barcelona’s chances an away win at the Nou Camp is still a big ask for United but I expect them to score a vital away goal to take to Old Trafford – although Ronaldo will fail to shine.”
Prediction 1-1
Rob Parker, Pies Deputy Ed.
“I think United can make the final, but I reckon they will mark hard work of it. I have an inkling that Thierry Henry might come good for Barca tonight.”
Prediction 1-0
