Tip Barcelona - Manchester United
Barcelona are on course to winning the La Liga title and all they are playing for at the moment is the Champions League. They did rest all crucial players in the barren draw with Huesca, perhaps in preparation for the clash against Manchester United. Luis Suarez and Gerrad Pique were suspended fo0r the La Liga clash so will be back fresh and well rested for the Manchester United game. Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets were not in the team over the weekend while Jordi Alba and Philippe Coutinho were substitutes in the game. Barcelona are unbeaten in eight and have one loss in 19 matches. They don’t lose a lot of games at home, and head to this one on four straight wins. They have lost only twice in the last 25 matches at home in all competitions. In 30 matches at home in the Champions League, Barcelona have not lost any; they have eight wins in the last 10 and have scored two or more goals in the process. United carry to Spain a run of four losses in the last six matches, while they have also lost each of their last three away matches. United have eight wins in 20 away matches in the Champions League and will be hoping to replicate the show against Paris Saint Germain, when they overturned a home loss in the first leg, with a comfortable win in the second.

Conclusion Barcelona - Manchester United
Manchester United overturned a bigger loss in the last round and they will be trying the same here, training by a goal, but in all fairness to them, it will be an uphill task and looking at Barcelona’s home record, it will be hard to bet on United taking anything from this clash. They could score a goal though.
