Manchester United vs Barcelona Match Preview and Team News


Manchester United

An interesting context awaits us on Thursday night as Manchester United plays host to FC Barcelona in the second leg of the Europa League knockout playoff round. The Red Devils come into this game on the back of a comfortable 3-0 win over Leicester City, which has left them just eight points behind league leaders Arsenal in the Premier League. The strength of Manchester United’s forward line, with Marcus Rashford at the helm, in recent weeks, is shown by the fact that it was their eighth successive game across all competitions that they have scored at least twice in a game. Jadon Sancho is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Fred found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Lisandro Martinez was absent from the first leg due to an accumulation of bookings, but the defender would be available for the second leg. Scott McTominay, who had been out for a while due to injury, rejoined the squad for Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Leicester City last weekend.


As for Barcelona, they beat Cádiz 2-0 on Sunday night to go eight points clear of the reigning La Liga Champions, Real Madrid. Just like the hosts, the visitors have consistently scored goals in recent weeks. The difference with Xavi’s men is that they are also very stable defensively, having finished seven of their last nine games without conceding a goal. Raphinha enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves toward the goal, the opponent has problems. Pedri showed that he is a great player, he moves well and cooperates with the attackers, all praise for him. Barcelona will not be able to call up on the services of young midfielder Pedri, who had to be substituted just before halftime in the first leg due to a serious hamstring injury. Gavi will also be missing after receiving a yellow card in that match, while Sergio Busquets will miss out as a result of an injury.
