Man Utd v Barcelona Prediction – Preview
Manchester United F.C.
Manchester United are confident heading into Old Trafford after drawing Barcelona in the first leg. Just two minutes after Barca went ahead in the second period, in-form Marcus Rashford slotted in the equaliser. The Man Utd forward also did working leading to the second goal, which forced an own goal from Jules Kounde. The Blaugrana would later come back on terms, but the match set a good precedent for the Erik ten Hag-led side for the 2nd leg. The Red Devils followed up this performance with a 3-0 thrashing of Leicester City in the English Premier League, with Rashford scoring again not once but twice, and Jadon Sancho adding the extra goal. Can this help boost their chances of making the UEL’s second round?
Man Utd have won just one of their last 11 matches against Barcelona in Europe (D5 L5), and are winless in the last 5 (D1 L4). Their only win was in April 2008 in a UCL semi-final (1-0 in the second leg).
Marcus Rashford has averaged one goal every 76 minutes for the Red Devils in the UEL this campaign (4 goals overall). This is the best ratio of any footballer who has played at least 300 minutes in the UEL this season.
Barcelona managed to avoid defeat at Camp Nou, drawing a Man Utd side that was firing on all cylinders. After a goalless first half, Marcos Asensio opened the scoring on 50 minutes for the Blaugrana, but found themselves trailing 1-2 nine minutes later. Raphinha came up as Barca’s saviour, with his long range shot finding the inner far post on 76 minutes. The Xavi-led side, who currently lead the Spanish La Liga race, picked up another three points as they saw off Cadiz 2-0, thanks to Sergi Roberto and Robert Lewadowski‘s goals. Now, will Barca have enough to defeat Ten Hag’s Man Utd on their home turf, and progress to the next round?
Barcelona have faced Man Utd away from home in Europe 5 previous times. After not winning the first 4 (D2 L2), they won 1-0 in April 2019 (Champions League quarter-final first leg).
Since the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign, Robert Lewandowski has scored 38 goals in 32 appearances in major European competition. This is more than any other player during this period.
