Yes! I wanted Barca to win, and they did, coming from behind to win 2-1. :p

Barcelona are the new champions of Europe after they beat ten-man Arsenal 2-1 in the Stade de France. A rain-sodden night in Paris saw Jens Lehmann sent off in only the 18th minute when he brought down Samuel Eto'o but Arsene Wenger's still held a lead at halt-time courtesy of Sol Campbell's header. There were valiant attempts to keep out Barcelona in the second 45 minutes, but their defensive rearguard was eventually breached in the 75th and 81st minutes respectively through Eto'o and substitute Juliano Belletti. The first period was a quintessential classic in terms of embracing all the elements that make-up a fine spectacle. There were missed chances, a sending off, contentious referring decisions, a goal and a plethora of fine attacking play.
