Barcelona vs Manchester Utd Prediction & Betting tips
In its own Camp Nou, FC Barcelona hopes to qualify for Manchester United on Tuesday evening at the Champions League semi-finals. Thanks to last week’s 0-1 victory over Old Trafford, the Spaniards are sitting on roses, but the English are not giving up the fight yet.
FC Barcelona versus Manchester United is of course a poster to lick your fingers at, but last week’s outbound match on English soil did not produce much spectacle. The Spanish top club played very poorly, although goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen was never put to the test. Also Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi could not really excel, although the Blaugrana took a big step towards the first place in the last four of the Champions League since 2015 thanks to an own goal from Manchester United defender Luke Shaw.
Of the 41 times that FC Barcelona managed to win the first leg on foreign soil in a European context, the team was able to qualify 39 times for the next round. The two times it went wrong was in the 1980-1981 seasons (against 1. FC Köln) and 1984-1985 (against Metz), or when all players from the current selection were not even born yet. In addition, the Catalans in their own Camp Nou with 27 wins and three draws already thirty Champions League-duels unbeaten, which is a record. Trainer Ernesto Valverde, however, did not take any risks last weekend and visited Huesca, a glorified B-team. Of the intended basic eleven for Tuesday evening, only Ter Stegen was kicking off. With the scoreless draw, FC Barcelona dropped two points, although no one was awake at Camp Nou. The focus is entirely on the return against Manchester United.
Manchester United needs a miracle at the Camp Nou, although the English can trust points from that memorable six-week-ago match at the Parc des Princes in Paris. Thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku (two) and Marcus Rashford, The Red Devils managed to surprise Paris Saint-Germain with 1-3, despite a laundry list of injuries, and they managed to polish away the 0-2 home defeat of three weeks earlier. Even after last week’s 0-1 defeat against FC Barcelona, the English must again be in the pursuit. “I’m sure we can also stunt at Camp Nou,” said trainer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. ‘With Lukaku and Rashford we have plenty of scoring ability. If we take advantage of our opportunities, anything is possible. ”
After the departure of Jose Mourinho, Solskjaer brought the pleasure back to the Old Trafford, but we cannot deny that the troubled superpower has been struggling again in recent weeks. Since the Paris Wonder, Manchester United has lost no fewer than four of its six games in all competitions. Also last weekend, at home against West Ham United, the red shirts had a hard time again, but thanks to two good penalties from Paul Pogba they took the full spoils: 2-1. Manchester United was very lucky, as Solskjaer had also seen: ‘They were the parent and had the best chances. If we play against FC Barcelona in this way, we will be hit hard. ”
