Manchester United vs Barcelona: match preview
The breathless 2-2 draw that Manchester United and Barcelona played out last week lived up to all of the pre-game hype, but there must be a winner as they face off at Old Trafford in the second leg of the Europa League knockout round playoff tonight. Unfortunately for Erik ten Hag's men, there's no away goals rule in force.
United almost scored within seconds of kick-off a week ago, only for Barca to then charge up the other end of the pitch and come close to breaking the deadlock themselves. That set the tone for the rest of the game – hopefully the rest of the tie, too.
Marcus Rashford was the star of the show, scoring one and creating another. He's unstoppable at the moment, the brace he bagged at the weekend putting him on 16 goals in 17 games, and 24 across all competitions. Though Wout Weghorst can only dream of such numbers, he's proving to be the perfect foil for his strike partner.
Those two start up front again tonight, with Brune Fernandes and Jadon Sancho in support. Interestingly, ten Hag has left Marcel Sabitzer out of his starting lineup, opting for the stodgier combination of Casemiro and Fred instead.
Barcelona's backline has been near-unbreachable in La Liga, but it was torn apart time after time throughout the first leg. So with Pedri injured and the one-man swarm of mosquitoes Gavi suspended, Sergio Busquets' return from an ankle injury couldn't have been timed better.
We only saw flickers of Robert Lewandowski's brilliance a week ago, as Raphinha instead took the lead. Having reacted furiously to being withdrawn by Xavi in the first leg, it wasn't clear if the Brazilian box of tricks would be involved tonight, but he lines up opposite Luke Shaw.
That means Ferran Torres, who has worked his way back into the picture with a show-stopping display at the weekend, is on the bench to begin with. Follow our guide to get a Manchester United vs Barcelona live stream and watch the Europa League playoff online from anywhere.
