  • Key Stat

    Key Stat: Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 30 Champions League matches at the Nou Camp - a run which stretches back to 2013.

  • Expert Verdict

    Expert Verdict: While this tie is still alive, with Manchester United restricting Barcelona to a single goal at Old Trafford, the ball is very much in Barca's court. The La Liga giants have not lost a home game in the Champions League since 2013 and, for all their improvement under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it is hard to see Man United being the team to end that unbeaten streak.

BarcelonaBarcelona Team News, Updates and Facts

Barcelona Team News

Barcelona took the opportunity to rest their key players at the weekend, with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba and Gerard Pique among those left out for the game against Huesca. Ousmane Dembele started that game as he returned from injury, and the French winger is likely to feature from the bench against United.

Barcelona Key Players

Lionel Messi – Below par at Old Trafford, but the Argentine superstar needs no introduction – back to his best form, he can lead Barcelona to victory.
Luis Suarez – In goalscoring form since his return from injury, playing his part in Shaw’s own goal in the first leg.
Ivan Rakitic – The Croatian will control the tempo in midfield and orchestrate Barcelona’s attacking threat from deep.

Barcelona Team Form

Barcelona have stretched their unbeaten run to eight matches in all competitions, keeping clean sheets in their last three games. They beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 thanks to Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi’s goals before their first-leg win – after Luke Shaw’s own goal – at Old Trafford. Last weekend, with their star players rested, the La Liga leaders drew 0-0 with Huesca.

Barcelona Predicted Starting Line up

Expected Line up: 4-3-3

Barcelona likely XI

  • Goalkeeper:Marc-Andre ter Stegen

  • Defenders:Sergi Roberto, Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet, Jordi Alba

  • Midfielders:Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Arthur

  • Forwards:Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho

Manchester UnitedManchester United Team News, Updates and Facts

Man United Team News

After being booked in the first leg, as well as scoring the own goal which gave Barcelona victory on the night, Luke Shaw is suspended for the second leg. Ashley Young will slot in at left-back, with Diogo Dalot an option to come in at right-back. Needing goals, United may be a bit more expansive than the first leg.

Man United Key Players

Marcus Rashford – The cool-headed hero with his dramatic late penalty against Paris Saint-Germain in the last round will be hoping to make more headlines this time out.
Anthony Martial – Scored in the win against Watford but has faded from the form he showed earlier in the season, prior to injury – this would be the perfect time to recapture it.
Paul Pogba – Scored two penalties last weekend as United returned to winning ways and the Frenchman will be key if they are to pull of a shock result at Nou Camp.

Man United Team Form

Defeat in the first leg of this tie means Manchester United have lost four of their last six games, but they did get back to winning ways last time out as Paul Pogba scored two penalties in a 2-1 Premier League win at home to West Ham United. They had previously lost to Barcelona and Wolves, the latter twice – either side of a home win against Watford.

Man United Predicted Starting Line up

Expected Line up: 4-2-3-1

Manchester United likely XI

  • Goalkeeper:David de Gea

  • Defenders:Diogo Dalot, Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, Ashley Young

  • Defensive Midfielders:Fred, Paul Pogba

  • Attacking Midfielders:Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard

  • Forwards:Romelu Lukaku

Barcelona vs Manchester United Head-to-Head Stats

Luke Shaw’s own goal means Barcelona have now won five of their 12 European meetings with Manchester United, while United have won three of those games. The match at Old Trafford was the first between the two sides since Barca’s triumph in the 2011 final, two years on from also beating United in the 2009 final.

BARCA vs MUFC Betting Tips

Manchester United showed in their win in Paris, having appeared down and out after the first leg, they should never be written off.

Barcelona are a very different beast, however, and to go through United will have to do what no team has managed in the Champions League since 2013 - win away at the Nou Camp.

Given they did not even manage a shot on target in the first leg, the odds are firmly stacked against them.

The first leg was one of three straight clean sheets Barcelona have kept, with Atletico Madrid another team to be shut out by Gérard Pique and co.

In truth, Barcelona were below par at Old Trafford but back to the best they should seal a semi-final place comfortably.

Their key players were rested at the weekend, while Ousmane Dembele is an extra option on his return from injury too.

United, on the other hand, did not have that luxury and - even after victory on Saturday - have still lost four of their last six.

Barcelona have one foot in the semi-final after winning away in the first leg, and it would be a big surprise if they did not seal progress at the Nou Camp.

Man United vs Barcelona Recommended bets with odds

Barcelona are odds-on favourites to beat Manchester United at the Nou Camp, at 4/11 with Bet365, Ladbrokes, Betfair and 888sport.

Barca have kept clean sheets in their last three matches, and you can bet against both teams to score at 11/10 with Betfair and Paddy Power.

Barcelona to win to nil is 6/4 with Ladbrokes, while under 2.5 goals – as in the first leg – is a best price of 7/4 with Betfair.

Lionel Messi was off colour in that first leg, but he can get back to his very best at the Nou Camp and is 11/20 with 888sport to score at any time.

Barcelona vs Manchester United Prediction

Barcelona have kept three clean sheets in their last three matches and another will guarantee their place in the semi-finals. Anything less than a Barcelona win would be a surprise at the Nou Camp.
