三冠王 !! (體育世界)
Player Ratings: Barcelona 2-0 Manchester United
Barcelona are champions of Europe after a 2-0 win over Manchester United at the Stadio Olimpico. Goal.com rates the (BARCELONA) players on show...
Valdes -7.0: Did not have too much to do during the game, but did produce a fine save from Ronaldo at 2-0.
Puyol -7.5: Switched to right back in place of the suspended Dani Alves and, despite the odd diagonal ball over his shoulder, was rarely troubled. Almost grabbed a third.
Pique -7.5: A few sloppy moments, but made two vital challenges on Park and Rooney to prevent almost-certain goals. Showed real heart did Pique.
Toure -7.0: What Toure lacked with his positioning, he made up for with strength and pace. After a tricky first 20 minutes against Ronaldo, he grew to have a solid match in his emergency centre back role.
Sylvinho -7.0: Another second-choice defender who filled in admirably. The 35-year-old only allowed Rooney to get in behind him on one occasion. Also supported well going forward.
Busquets -7.0: Guardiola opted for the youngster ahead of Keita, and he did him proud. Nothing flashy, held his position tactically, and gave the ball to Xavi and Iniesta to do all the damage.
Xavi -9.0: A genius. Xavi is quite simply the best playmaker in world football. Ran the game from the 25th minute onwards, assisted Messi's goal, created Henry and Puyol's one-on-one chance, hit the post with a free kick, and did so much more.
Iniesta -9.0: Started tentatively, but soon dominated the game along with partner in crime Xavi. Provided the pass for Eto'o goal, embarked on numerous dizzy runs, and was unplayable for long stretches.
Messi -7.5: Not at his brilliant best, but had his moments and most importantly scored the killer second - his first against English opposition, and a rare headed goal.
Eto'o -7.5: Gave Vidic and Ferdinand constant headaches with his running. Scored the first goal by outfoxing the Serbian centre, and linked up well with Messi, Iniesta and Xavi.
Henry -6.5: Clearly not fully fit, but could have got onto the scoresheet when he tricked Ferdinand on 50 minutes and saw his one-on-one saved by van der Sar. Finally gets his hand on the Champions League.
Keita 6.5: Tightened up the midfield after coming on for Henry at 2-0.
Pedro - N/V: Came on in injury time.
