Barcelona welcomes Manchester United to the Camp Nou on Tuesday with a spot in the Champions League semifinals on the line. It’s the second leg of the quarterfinals in Spain with Barca leading 1-0 following last Wednesday’s second leg. In that match, it was an own goal off a header from Luis Suarez that gave Barca the slim, yet valuable advantage entering this one, where a win or a draw will see them advance.

Storylines

Barcelona: A draw is enough for Barca, while a goal would still leave United needing two goals. They’ll look to be cautious defensively and patient in attack to eliminate any quick build up from the English club. Two goals will probably be enough to kill this one off.

Manchester United: The Red Devils pulled off the shocker at PSG in the round of 16, so they’ll be boosted knowing they can do it again here against a Barca team that at time can look quite inconsistent. They are big underdogs, and they’ll likely need the strength of Romelu Lukaku to help hold the ball up and cause trouble on set pieces. 

Prediction

Barcelona earns a comfortable victory at home to move on to the semifinals.

Pick: Barcelona (-250)
