Prediction

Manchester United did the unthinkable once in the last round, and Barca aren’t the vaunted team of a few years previous, but it’s still hard to imagine the Spanish champions in waiting leaving Old Trafford without at least one away goal.

They can be got at and there are goals to be had if United (Romelu Lukaku specifically) strap on their shooting boots – despite the brilliance of Marc-Andre Ter Stegen between the sticks – but Messi and Co. will be looking to kill the tie this week ahead of next week’s second leg.

Expect Luis Suarez to get on the scoresheet, at least once, with United perhaps giving themselves a chance ahead of the trip to the Nou Camp with one in reply. 1-3.
