Tournament: Champions League. ¼ final.
In frames of the return ¼ final match of the Champions League will meet Barcelona Spain and Man United England.
In the first game on Old Trafford the team from Catalonia was celebrating the victory (1:0) thanks to the own goal of Luke Shaw at the beginning of the match.
However, along with this Barca understanding the force of the rival that is playing on home ground had no intentions to play in attack.
It was rather defending its minimal advantage though the team had experienced some problems in the second half of the match.
The Red Devils had problems with accuracy in assists on final stages of the attack. But they still were attacking and had made several dangerous approaches to the rivals’ gates and surely deserved one scored goal.
Now and then the Mancunians were putting pressure on Blaugrana forcing them to make mistakes but still, the team from Catalonia has managed to keep its minimal advantage.
Of course, we doubt that the team of Ernesto Valverde will stay close to own gates on Camp Nou and MU will have difficult times.
But in the first match the English team has demonstrated the ability to leave the defense and get into the attack even being under pressure.
This may become one of the main trump cards and the fact that they are playing in frames of the away match may become a real advantage.
Last round they have got in such situation with PSG (but the score was even worse). The Mancunians can play calmer in the capital of Catalonia and we do not doubt that they will manage to score.
But not to miss any goal is practically “mission impossible”. That is why we suppose that the match will be hot.
Our tip: both to score YES – odds 1.8
