The UEFA champions league is hot and consuming. The quarter-final clash between Manchester United and Barcelona is indeed an epic encounter. Barcelona goes into the match with amazing confidence having given their closest rival in the Spanish Premier league a humiliating 2:0 defeat in Camp Nou at the weekend. Barcelona is set to win their second consecutive league title this season.
Unlike Manchester United who is struggling to make the top four of the English premier league having been defeated by wolves 2:1 in the English premier league. United have been able to get 61 points in 32 matches and now currently sits in the sixth position in the league.
Barcelona has made a huge boost in the semi-final dream at the champions league with their young star Dembele returning from a muscle injury it suffered during the 5:1 humiliating defeat of Olympic Lyonnais at the knock out stage of the champions league. Dembele is set to fire from all cylinders to give Barcelona the needed victory to progress with ease to the semi-final of the champions league.
Gerald Pique a former Manchester United player between 2004 -2008. He spoke about the epic encounter between his former club and his boyhood club Barcelona. “ I have seen the replay of Manchester United against Paris Saint-German PSG. You can never leave United unmarked. You have got to finish the job. They showed that in the second leg against PSG. They have got a lot of young players. The penalty at the end is a big example of what can happen.
Lionel Messi has however failed to score in his last eleven champions league quarter-final ties for Barcelona and has attempted fourth shots in the barren period.
Luis Suarez is however set to bang in the goals for Barcelone to prove to United and the world that he is worth millions of pounds chase. He also has to bang in the goals to tell the Spanish media that he’s back and back for good.
One sure thing is Barcelona cannot lose this encounter. You can bet your fortune and live your dream on a win or draw for Barcelona. Looking forward to Barcelona in the semi-final.
