Champions League: Man Utd vs Barcelona
Date: Wednesday, April 10
Time: 3 p.m. ET
Location: Old Trafford
TV channel: TNT and UniMas
Odds: Man Utd +260 / Barca +100 / Draw +260
Man Utd: It’s always tricky when you face a Lionel Messi-led Barcelona squad in the Champions League and you are an English club. He’s the top scorer in history against English teams with 22 of his 106 goals coming against English competition. In four games against Man Utd, he has two goals. The key here for Man Utd will be to avoid defeat to have a fighter’s chance in Spain in next week’s second leg.
Barcelona: Ernesto Valverde’s team will go for the win, but any draw with goals would be a fine result to go back to the Camp Nou with. They’ve scored two goals in eight of their last nine games, and it seems likely that they’ll find the net here in this one. The pressure on the Man Utd defense will start early.
Lionel Messi gets a goal, Phillipe Coutinho adds a winner and Barcelona returns to Spain with the heavy advantage.
Pick: Barcelona (+100)
