Manchester United are all set to host Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions Leg quarterfinals fixture at the Camp Nou Stadium on Wednesday. The Ole Gunnar Solksjaer-led side had famously defeated Paris Sain-Germain in their round of 16 after registering a comeback from a 2-0 deficit in the first leg. While Barcelona cruised past Lyon to seal a place in the last eight.
The Enrnesto Valverde-led Barca have all but sealed their league trophy in the La Liga and will aim to emulate their top performances in the Champions League in a bid to win the tournament for the first time since 2015.
The Red Devils are currently placed at the sixth position in the Premier League and as their Champions League qualification for the next season by finishing top four in the league grows increasingly uncertain, the route to attaining that spot by winning the tournament in the current campaign is a possibility they would have to bank on.
In stark contrast, Barcelona’s forwards starring the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are firing on all cylinders while Manchester United’s defenders are facing a difficult time without consistent performances on the trot.
