      Manchester United vs Barcelona Predictions

      Manchester United have seen their chances of success this season take a big blow over the last few weeks, with a loss away to Arsenal marking the beginning of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first really tough spell of results. They have followed that by being beaten by Wolves twice, one of which knocked them out of the FA Cup and the other which severely damaged their top four aspirations.

      Now, their attentions turn towards an incredibly difficult Champions League quarter final tie with Barcelona. The odds are stacked against the Red Devils, but after what happened in Paris last month, nobody is ruling anything out right now.

      Since Solskjaer took charge back in December, Manchester United have won 15, drawn two, and lost four of their 21 competitive matches. They have only lost once at Old Trafford, although that was a 2-0 defeat to PSG in the first leg of their last 16 tie.

      Barcelona are even tougher opponents than the wealthy Parisians. They lead the La Liga table by 11 points coming into this game, and their 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid at the weekend made it eight wins from their last 10 matches in all competitions.

      That being said, they haven’t always had it their own way in the Champions League. They were held to a goalless draw in the first leg of their last 16 tie with Lyon, and both Inter Milan and Spurs took points off them in the group stages earlier this season.

      Despite the wealth of attacking talent on display on Wednesday, we’re actually expecting a rather tight and cagey affair. Neither team will want to give any ground to the opposition, and previous outings suggest that a low scoring match could be on the cards.

      For example, all four of Manchester United’s home games in the Champions League this season have seen fewer than three goals scored, including low scoring defeats to both Juventus and PSG. Barcelona, meanwhile, have seen fewer than three goals in half of their Champions League outings this season, including four of their last six.

      This makes a bet of Under 2.5 Goals look a great value offering here, so that’s what we’re backing on Wednesday along with a tight 1-0 win for favourites Barcelona.
