One sure thing tonight is either Man United or Barca one will qualify
For now we known that at this time, in the English Premier League
And surely MU is ranked 3rd on the table with 49 points
That’s 5 and 3 points behind the two top teams (Arsenal and Man City) respectively.
Therefore this is a difficult time for Erig ten Hag’s army as they enter an important series on all fronts.
However, both Man Utd and Barca will be looking for response in the UEL, Europa League
In the first leg, MU had a great advantage when leading Barcelona for most of the game.
And they were only equalized by Raphinha’s goal after 71 minutes. However, holding the Blaugrana at Camp Nou also brought a big advantage for the Manchester Reds.
Both MU and Barca should serve up another treat
We know that intriguingly-poised tie that could go either way plays out at Old Trafford on Thursday when Manchester United attempt to knock Barcelona out of the Europa League.
And now the Red Devils are looking to finish off the job they started at Spotify Camp Nou when they went toe-to-toe with the LaLiga leaders.
Again Man United could be said to have had the better of those exchanges as they created a higher quality of chances while they also now have a stronger squad to choose from with Lisandro Martinez and Marcel Sabitzer back from suspension.
Barca can restore Sergio Busquests to their midfield, but have lost both Gavi and Pedri to suspension and injury respectively. Ousmane Dembele, who would start if available, is still out too.
UEL: Man United vs Barca match at OT it on full game tonight
Specifically, at the weekend, the Old Trafford team will meet Newcastle in the League Cup final and in the middle of next week is the FA Cup fifth round match against West Ham. Next will be Liverpool in the English Premier League. 2 weeks and 4 matches are very ‘tense’.
On the opposite side, Barcelona is the leading team in La Liga with a distance of up to 8 points compared to rival Real Madrid.
So therefore, the Catalan team is unbeaten in 18 consecutive matches in all competitions. The last time they lost was against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Now the last 8 away matches of Barcelona are all victories. In addition, they also won MU in the last match as a guest at Old Trafford (Champions League 2018/19).
However, in addition, the schedule of the team led by Xavi is also quite light at the moment.
