Barcelona are in town this night because the runaway Spanish La Liga leaders are set to tackle Manchester United within the first leg in their Champions League Quarter-Final.
Man UTD Form has dipped in current weeks and have gotten a massive undertaking on our palms towards the Catalans front 3 which are Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been surpassed a blow in that Ander Herrera, Marcus Rashford and Nemanja Matic are all struggling to be fit in time for the first leg at Old Trafford this night.
Barcelona only have Ousmane Dembele lacking through injury.
Here is the Squad I assume Manchester United will be dealing with:
Goalkeeper: Marc-Andre ter Stegen
The German has won the Starting spot from Jasper Cillessen in the Champions League this season. Marc-Andre ter Stegen is one of the best in the World, so much that many feels he needs to be Germany’s number one, ahead of Manuel Neuer. How frequently we are able to take a look at ter Stegen stays to be visible. I am expecting a totally protective setup and counter-attack game from Ole Gunner Solskjaer.
Defence: Sergi Roberto, Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet, Jordi Alba
One weak spot inside the Barcelona team now is their defence. Manchester United really Need to take gain of the gap they lead behind. Unfortunately, Jordi Alba has ridiculous pace to get back in position even when he’s hanging round our 18-yard field as his starting position. Clement Lenglet has won the starting centre-back spot from Samuel Umtiti this season to partner former Manchester United defender Gerard Pique.
Midfield: Sergio Busquets, Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic
Sergio Busquets anchors the midfield and along him is the unpredictable Arturo Vidal. You by no means realize what to anticipate from the Chilean. He’s a live wire and we will expect a box-to-box game from him. Vidal makes top notch runs from deep into the penalty location also, so he’s every other purpose risk in this Barcelona aspect, though he hasn’t replicated his goalscoring prowess that he had in Germany and Italy yet. Ivan Rakitic often runs the midfield and you can count on the Croatian to deliver plenty of the ball this nighttime, laying it off to the the front three.
Attack: Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho
The absence of Ousmane Dembele works nicely for Manchester United due to the fact I wouldn’t fancy their possibilities so much with Ashley Young up towards the costly French forward. Philippe Coutinho plays down the left in his absence and we recognize from his time at Liverpool he can score a purpose out of nowhere. Luis Suarez has been out of form in the Champions League currently but he’ll be up for this night game for sure. The Uruguayan has additionally scored important goals against Villarreal and Atletico Madrid over the past week. There’s nothing to say about Lionel Messi which you don’t already know…
Here’s how May Barcelona line up:
