Barcelona Prediction

Barcelona secured what could be a vital 1-0 win away at Old Trafford against Manchester United in last week’s 1st leg, and they’ll be keen to hold onto this lead when they once again do battle with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, but this time in their own backyard.

The hosts extended their unbeaten run to eight matches in all competitions on the weekend when they drew 0-0 away at Huesca in the domestic La Liga, and this sequence of positive results have seen Barcelona register wins against Rayo Vallecano, Lyon, Real Betis, Espanyol, Atletico Madrid and the 1st leg clash against Manchester United.

The home side possess a strong pedigree in the Champions League as Barcelona are unbeaten in their last nine matches overall in the Champions League, and indeed, have suffered just one defeat out of their last 20 matches overall in the competition.

In addition, Barca have been dominant on home turf at this level too as they’ve registered 20 wins from their last 23 Champions League ties at home, along with being unbeaten in their last 30 matches in the elite European competition which is some record.


Key-Facts – Barcelona v Manchester United

  • Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 30 home ties in the Champions League
  • Barcelona have beaten the AH-1 handicap in 22 of these 30 matches
  • Manchester United have lost 4 of their last 11 matches away from home


Manchester United Prediction

It seems an absurd phrase to use, but Manchester United do resemble something of a lamb to the slaughter when they make their way over to Spain for Tuesday night’s 2nd leg against Barcelona whom they trail by a 1-0 deficit at the Camp Nou.

After making a triumphant start as caretaker-manager at Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has experience dthe other side of football management as his United side have lost four of their last six matches overall in all competitions.

Defeats in the Premier League to Arsenal, Wolves (in the FA Cup and Premier League) as well as the 1st leg loss to Barcelona now has Manchester United on red alert as they prepare to stage what would be a memorable come-back if they manage to beat their hosts, Barcelona, on Tuesday night.

Recent results in the Champions League have also produced mixed results for Manchester United as they’ve recorded wins against Young boys (home and away), Juventus and PSG, but losses to Juventus, Valencia, PSG and Barcelona show that United can be vulnerable.

United have lost 4 of their last 11 away ties in the Champions League and they’ll need to be on the front foot if they’re to upstage Barcelona at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night.

Betting Tips Verdict

Barcelona can bide their time here and pick United off on the counter-attack as the hosts look well placed to progress through to the semi-finals.
