Barca v Bayern finale in Madrid?

Talking points are aplenty when footy is the topic. Loose cannon had plenty to say but since time was limited, he concluded Lyon and Bayern Munich would go through to the semis while Barca would beat Inter in the European Cup semis. This was discussed on Astro Awani's Sudut Pandang, hosted by Liverpool fan (pity him) Kamarul Baharin Haron, two weeks ago.

Loose cannon prefers to call it the Cup since it has reached the knockout stages. Why Bayern at the expense of Lyon? Perhaps due to the German's European pedigree.

It will be a tussle between the Lyon attack of Lisandro Lopez (if he recovers) and the clumsy Bayern backfour with Daniel van Buyten and Martin Demichelis in the centre as well as Ivica Olic/Mario Gomez/Miroslav Klose/Franck Ribery/Arjen Robben/Bastian Schweinsteiger versus Hugo Lloris between the Lyon net.

Mark van Bommel in the centre, Ribery and Robben on the flanks, too hard for Jeremy Toulalan, Jean Makoun and Kim Kallstrom to cope over two legs.

Barca? Hmm...if Xavi and Andres Iniesta are able to supply those penetrative passes, Krkic, Pedro, Ibra, Titi and of course Messi would wreak havoc on the central partnership of Walter Samuel-Lucio.

Carles Puyol and Co versus Milito and Eto'o? The Catalans to go through!

After match last nite between Inter and Barca, seems like Barca will face very tought game for 2nd leg. As we can see, without Iniesta, Xavi finds very difficult to channel his idea. In fact, Messi and Ibra was no way to go at that match.

Mourinho's tactic seem to be effective especially lined-up Eto'o at right flank. Eto'o was superb plays his role supports Maicon and create 1st and 3rd goal.

Mr Rizal, what do u think? Can Barca overcome the margin?

salam bro,

my prediction is Messi will be back during the next return leg. Probably another 4 goals special from the Magical Messi.

Bayern mesti takde masalah qualifying fro final. So saya rasa Bayern vs Barcelona kat Barnebeu nanti.

Salam 'Jalan Rebung',
Yeah... we will see 2nd leg

Back to the topic, Bayern offense is excellent. With Robben and Ribery's pace at flank is the nightmare to any teams in Europe. Only player with full determination and pace can keep them quiet.

However, Bayern defensive record was terrible. Demichelis and van Buyten is not the quickers and only depend on their height and tackling. If Lyon strikers can use their pace and quick feets, i believe Lyon can go thru'. Bayern defends need to be strong in pace and close any room to any striker if they want the trophy back to Germany.

barca tak boleh main pd game semalam..messi kena kunci,xavi tak ade gerakan,ibra juga kaku tanpa gerakan..kawalan dr inter mmg baik..susah tuk barca..kelab2 italy mmg kental pertahanannya..

salehichenko, on paper it's going to be difficult for barca. For sure the Special One will park his bus in front of Julio Cesar and opt for the counter attack route. Without Puyol, Barca needs a leader at the back and xavi will have to be smart to control the tempo so that barca would not get caught out by eto'o and milito. with sneijder having enjoyed a new lease of life in inter, it's going to be a good game in camp nou.

Jalan Rebung,

Messi has to deliver. Itu cabaran pemain hebat. Jalankan tugas ketika benar-benar diperlukan. Messi tidak akan dinobat selaku pemain terhebat selagi tidak menjulang Piala Dunia...

Ragbi? Arena nampaknya ada siarkan. dalam blog tak pernah tulis ragbi la bro...heheh

rizal hashim said...

Musang nakal, satu ketika dulu Football Made in Germany jadi santapan. Masa tu Gerd Muller, Jurgen Grabowski pun main lagi...apalagi Felix Magath, Horst Hrusbesch, Dieter Muller...
Bayern zaman Rummenigge hebat...baju merah tak de kolar...

rizal hashim said...

Chindek, terima kasih layari blog ini. Ribery wajar ke kena kad merah? Apasal saya tak boleh tinggalkan komen blog saudara?

Bayern vs Lyon,

Good game last night but it has been ruined by the standard of the referee. Ribery's red card was harsh. Yellow is deserve. Toulalan' 2nd yellow was deserve. He already shown a yellow couple mins before but why he acts like that? He should control his passion.

Robben again is decisive man. His goal separated the game but Bayern surely will face very tough game without Ribery. Not so many chances created. Olic withdrawn at internal of game is very poor decision. Muller should go instead of Olic. Poor game by the Germans.

Mr Rizal,
RIbery deserved a red card? Can Bayern play their game in Lyon w/o Ribery? Can Lyon take this advantge?
