Another great piece from Mike L. Goodman for Grantland:
“Hoping for a mistake” isn’t the most inspiring game plan, but that’s part of Barcelona’s brilliance: They simply don’t leave opponents with very many options. A comfortable Barcelona win is by far the most likely outcome — though it’s a result that says more about the unbelievable strength of the favorite than the weaknesses of the challenger. It’s easy to see it playing out like so: The first goal comes from a moment of magic from the front three combining to break through a tough defense, and then Barcelona have a barrage of chances on the counter as Juventus try to even it up. Barcelona have been too much for anyone to handle for months, and it’s hard to picture tomorrow being any different. But the game’s only 90 (or 120) minutes, and that’s just enough time to leave us all scratching our heads, wondering about what we thought we knew.
