Well played, Arsenal, though the European Cup proved to be a step too far. After having goalkeeper Lehmann sent off early in the first half, the Gunners actually took the lead against Barcelona through a Sol Campbell header in the 37th minute. For a half hour of the second half, it looked like the ten men were going to hang onto their lead and win the cup, but in the last 15 minutes, tired legs were overwhemed and two goals were conceded. 2-1 to Barca then. Have to say, that this final was something of an anti-climax after Liverpool's fantastic come-back last year.
