Platini expects "unpredictable" and "beautiful" final

UEFA president Michel Platini has reassured Manchester United and Barcelona fans that security arrangements for Wednesday's Champions League final in Rome are under control, paving the way for a "beautiful game".

More than 67,000 fans are expected today in the Italian capital, while 5000 police officers will be on hand to make sure things run smoothly in the Eternal City.

Platini, speaking at Rome's Tor Vergata University where he was honoured with the Ethic award for sport, said: "All is under control, we don4t have any security concerns.

"The Stadio Olimpico is beautiful and now let's pray (that all goes well)."

Platini expects a great final between two sides that have made headlines this season.

Barcelona go into the game having won the Primera Liga title and the Copa del Rey, while reigning champions Manchester United recently celebrated winning the Premier League.

Assessing the match Platini said: "It's useless to make any predictions.

"Football is unpredictable and then Barcelona and Manchester United are two very strong teams.

"Without a doubt it's going to be a beautiful game."
