FC Barcelona Vs Manchester United Champions League Q / Final 2019



MANCHESTER UNITED started with the above 11 names.

Manchester United started well dominating the first 5 minutes but from then things went terribly wrong. An 11 th min penalty called on Rakitic but disallowed by the “VAR” was the “alarm bell”. This was followed shortly by a horrible attempt to get the ball out of defense by Young that allowed MESSI to take possession of the ball, escape defenders & score for FC Barcelona in the 16th min. Things got even worse when a shot at goal by MESSI went beneath the body of Manchester United goalie DAVID DE GEA in the 19th min. A shocker, & its not the first time DE GEA has sinned in this manner, one recalls against Portugal while goalkeeping for Spain in the last World Cup when a Ronaldo shot & it also went beneath the body.

With a 2 – 0 scoreline things were uphill for Manchester United while FC Barcelona calm things down to a pace that was more suitable to their style. Barça continued looking for more goals & nearly found a 3rd when Messi again did his magic & found Sergi Roberto whose shot was this time saved by De Gea.

The second half was a copy of the first. Man Utd started more intensely looking to create some opportunities & find some luck. However, their efforts faded in the 61st min when Barça midfielder COUTINHO shot from outside the area into the net for Barça´s 3rd goal. There was nothing De Gea could do about it. Manchester United coach Ole Solskjær moved the bench with Kukaku & Alexis coming on with the latter having a clear occasion in the 90th min which Barça goalie Ter Stegen stopped brilliantly. Just not Manchester United’s night.

FINAL RESULT: FC BARCELONA 3 – MANCHESTER UNITED 0 (4-0 AGGREGATE)

Conclusions, Barca too strong tonightneutralized Manchester Utd & a was steps above in quality. The English team made some terrible mistakes & paid dearly as habitual at this level of Football. Midfielder POGBA disappointed greatly & puts a question mark over his head about why all the fuss with Real Madrid wishing to sign the Frenchman.

LIONEL MESSI was the keythe man of the match & the driver of his team, two goals & just brilliant. Great match from Rakitic, Lenglet, Jordi Alba, Pique & company.

FC Barcelona now moves onto the Champions League semi-finals stage & are looking good.
