FC Barcelona Vs Manchester United | Champions League Betting Predictions & Odds
Soccer fans around the world await with bated breath as the second leg of the Champions League quarter finals approach, hoping their favorite team can make it to the final four of the prestigious competition. The glamour tie of the round is clearly the battle between Barcelona and Manchester United, and the Spaniards took a huge step towards qualification by winning at Old Trafford for the first time in their history. Even though they’ve only won by a solitary goal and the Red Devils exerted quite the pressure for most of the game, Barcelona remains the clear favorite of the tie for a multitude of reasons.
FC Barcelona Vs Manchester United Betting Predictions
The first leg of the tie took place on the 10th of April at Old Trafford where Barcelona edged out a 1-0 win in a hard-fought contest. While Manchester United put up a decent fight, there’s little to indicate that they can turn around the tie in the second leg – except for the fact that it’s exactly what they’ve done against Paris-Saint Germain in the round of 16 after losing by two goals in the first leg.
Even though Manchester United has done much better away from home in the Champions League this season under both managers – the beleaguered Mourinho picked up a win against Juventus while Solskjaer made a famous comeback happen in Paris –there’s little to suggest that the same could be happening this time around. The Spaniards haven’t lost at the Nou Camp in the premiere international competition since May 2013 – an astonishing thirty-match streak since their massive defeat to Bayern Munich.
Not only that, but as the domestic title is all but wrapped up, there’s little reason to suggest that Barcelona would be holding back in any capacity. There’s also the last round to consider: after a slightly disappointing goalless draw against Olympique Lyon, the Catalans roared to a 5-1 victory in the second leg on home soil.
Many of Solskjaer’s famous victories so far came from utilizing impressive counter-attacks – an opportunity he likely won’t be afforded this time around from a losing position – and the fact that he’s lost four out of five games since his permanent appointment, and even the +680 to win seems like an iffy value proposition.
