Barcelona vs Manchester United Prediction

Luke Shaw’s own goal at Old Trafford was enough for a 1-0 Barcelona victory.

The Catalan side are notoriously strong at home and United face another tough task here.

Barca rested some of their star names at the weekend including Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

 

Barcelona vs Manchester United Match Preview

Last week’s 1-0 at Old Trafford has put Bayern Munich in a very strong position ahead of this tie, but they will be all too well aware of the turnaround Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side produced from 2-0 down in Paris a few weeks ago. Barca were in the luxurious position of being able to rest a number of their big names for the 0-0 draw with Huesca at the weekend where as Man United are still battling for a top four finish in the Premier League.

The likes of Pique, Busquests, Jordi Alba, Semedo, Suarez, Messi, Coutinho and Arthur were all taken out of the starting line-up at the weekend, so they’ll be fresh for this fixture.

Manchester United needed two penalties to beat West Ham on Saturday evening and the two goal man from that match, Paul Pogbam will have to be at his very best to drive Man United forward at the Nou Camp.

The hosts are usually so strong at home and they thrashed Lyon 5-1 in the last round. It’s hard to see another repeat of United’s Paris heroics but they could get on the scoresheet, so the first of our Barcelona vs Manchester United predictions is for Barca to win and both teams to score. The odds are 7/4 with 888Sport where you get 3 free £10 bets when you sign-up.

 

Barcelona vs Man United Betting Tips

Over 2.5 goals is very short in the betting odds at 1/2 for this match and although that is too short for a bet, you could consider adding it to your midweek over 2.5 goals accumulator. Over 3.5 goals would probably be a good bet here too because United know they need to score and that will open up the game. If there is an early goal for Barcelona, the floodgates could open just like they did in the last round against Lyon.

However, we’re going for a first goalscorer tip and there is only one man we want to be betting on here. Lionel Messi is always going to be a short priced favourite, but with good reason. The Argentine has scored eight goals in the competition already and surpassed the 40 goals in a season mark once again.

The best price for Lionel Messi to score first vs Manchester United is 5/2 at Betfair and you’ll get their £100 sign-up bonus via this link. Betting on Messi at other bookies only gets you 2/1 or less, so be sure to use Betfair.

 

Barcelona vs Manchester United Score Prediction

The last of our Barcelona vs Manchester United predictions is for a correct score and we’re backing a 3-1 win for the home side here.

They’re unbeaten in 30 Champions League matches at the Nou Camp, winning 28 of them. One of their draws came this season when Tottenham held them to a 1-1 draw but in knockout matches they usually come good. As illustrated in the 5-1 win over Lyon in the last round and 3-0 and 4-1 wins against Chelsea and Roma last season.

Man United did the unthinkable in Paris but the experience of this Barcelona side will ensure that doesn’t happen on Tuesday night.
