Where to watch the Champions League Final in Barcelona?

I'm going to be in Barcelona on the 28 May and would desperately like to watch the Champions League final. The complication: I support Manchester United, who are very likely to be playing in the final, quite possibly against Barcelona.

I need suggestions for the best place to watch the game, assuming United are playing Barcelona. (I assume that if United are playing Real Madrid, everyone in Barcelona will be cheering for United, but please correct me if I'm wrong on that one).

So I'm looking for an Espanyol bar, a Barcelona bar where the locals don't mind drinking with rival fans, or a neutral bar.

Further complication: I need to be at the Parc Del Forum (near the far end of Avenida Diagonal) as soon as possible after the game.

The Manchester United Forums might also be a good place to ask this question, if you don't get any answers here.

I watched last years Arsenal-Barcelona match in an australian bar called Hogans on La Rambla last year. There were lots of Arsenal fans in there and the locals didn't seem to mind. They showed coverage from the RTE in there so the commentary was in English.
Not the best bar in the city but it did the trick.

Response by poster: Thanks both. Ramblas would have been a good option except for needing to be at the Parc Del Forum ASAP after the game. Luckily, they're going to be showing the game at the festival (after a lot of arguing about the relative merits of PJ Harvey and the Champions League among fans, and most bands refusing to play at the same time as the game).
