Barcelona vs Manchester United 2019 Champions League Odds & Prediction

Why Bet On Manchester United

Manchester United is completely and utterly desperate entering this match simply because they need a small miracle if they are going to reach the Champions League semifinals. In addition to that, Manchester United got past West Ham in their English Premier League matchup on Saturday as Paul Pogba struck twice to lead the way to victory. Manchester United also pulled off a stunning upset a 3-1 upset over French giant PSG that would suggest they can play with anyone.

Why Bet On Barcelona

Barcelona comes into this match off a goalless draw against Huesca on Saturday so they’ll be highly motivated in this one. Barca did get past Manchester United 1-0 in the first leg of their quarterfinals showdown on Wednesday as Luke Shaw’s own goal gave them a 1-0 first-leg victory at Old Trafford last week. Shaw deflected a Luis Suarez header into his own net after 12 minutes. Still, Barca extended their stupendous unbeaten streak to eighteen competitive matches. Not only that, but Barcelona’s first win at Old Trafford in European competition was basically a one-sided smackdown, seeing as how keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen never faced a single shot on goal.

  • D – 4-4 vs Villareal
  • W – 2-0 vs Atletico Madrid

Expert Analysis and Prediction

While Manchester manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his team’s attacking players have a legitimate chance to challenge Barcelona in this match, I don’t believe that’s the case, particularly with Lionel Messi back on the pitch for this affair after he sat out the previous meeting.

“You look at the quality of those players and that gives us a threat,” said Solskjaer, who, ironically, scored a Champions League winner at Camp Nou way back in 1999. No…no disrespect intended, but Ole Gunnar is grasping at straws. Barcelona is the better team at both ends of the pitch and that’s why they’ll win and win by two goals.

Pick: Barcelona 3 Manchester United 1
