Manchester Utd vs Barcelona (By: TFB)

Champions League

Taking a slight risk and going early on this match due to the great odds on offer for a Barcelona win.

Man Utd were 2nd best against PSG in both legs but were very fortunate to progress in an amazing 2nd leg in Paris. United created very little throughout both legs and all 3 goals in Paris were due to mistakes or good luck. Barcelona are least 1 level higher than PSG and possess better all round attacking players. Assuming Messi & Suarez are fit, Man Utd's defence will really struggle to stop both of them.

There are also signs the Solskjaer bubble is bursting slightly with two consecutive defeats and very lame performances against Arsenal and Wolves.

What might work in United's favour is the fact they have 8 days to prepare for this game, assuming no game is re-scheduled whereas Barcelona have a home tie against Atletico Madrid a few days before.

Still, the difference in quality is big enough to back the Spanish giants.

Too early, there maybe some injuries along the way which might affect the game come next month. Anyway, it's a thumb up me.

The underdog tag just about suits United quite well here. They were given no chance against PSG also. You will be surprised.

Good luck boss but if I were you, I would stake twice! One on a Barca win and another a double chance for Utd. Bear in mind utd were the under dogs against PSG and were given an odd of 6.75 or so but what happened? They defied the odds. Right now, u want to be realistic and say Barca has more individual qualities and experience than Utd yet I wouldn't rule out being optimistic for even higher odds for a Utd win. So I guess it's the battle of being Realistic Vs Optimism. Good luck!

ManU is going to the final, barca hasn't shown anything special for the whole season. United to win is valued at

TFB, you're lucky with Pinnacle if you can put a pick 3 weeks before. Well, my bookie doesnt have that option. Just 7 days and that all. I expect that odds for Barcelona will drop -0,60

Its too early my man to predict this game unless you wish and you are a fan of any team above. Otherwise you analysis now does not make sense because a week is long time in football and a lot can change.

Hmm, Manchester United vs Barcelona.....
Only one outcome is what l can see here, sentiment apart, Barcelona to qualify , whatever the date may be for now, Suarez and Messi will be OK, they will be kept away from injury match or matches before this date, l will not be surprise if they are beached against Atletico Madrid

Easy win for Barca

Those who remember few seasons ago,Chelsea eliminated Barc and eventually beat Bayern in finals . They were real underdogs even then struggling in the league. In soccer anything can happen. We have been seeing odds being defied. We don't how the situation will be in both camps then. What can be thought of now may be a on goals, btts yes or over 2.5 at a small stake

A match between two great TEAMS participating in two different leagues, UEFA is a totally different competition and for sure this is a hard game.. Do not write off Manchester this early, GOOD LUCK

Both team they are smart 50-50, which will
lead .But to me United they will work well on the game due to that cup which they will carry this season.

90mins will determine who win.

No prediction for this game because both teams are big clubs

Its likely to be a a 1-1 draw at due home advantage for Man UTD , possibly they learnt from PSG mistakes.

Man Utd Win. Easy. No brainer. Already bet 100 pounds on Man Utd.

This match is so near now, and all parameters remained the same, Manchester United will have to play their serious counter attack and defend as a unit in order to get a draw at home, but l see Messi scoring once or twice tomorrow, So the real pick should be X2 plus 1.5 goals.

Wow! @Tbf! over 31comments on your tip means you're a superstar guy. On the match, I believe the best bet will be BTTS for Man u & Barca defences have some issues recently by not able to prevent their respective opponents from scoring goals. Good luck.

This game is a bit smelly, if barca wins the bookies will be thrashed economically, but who knows?
The beauty of football, just about anything can happen. Good luck to you all.

Good odds and good prediction. I know most of people wouldn't like to see Barcelona in semi finals but they are still too good. We will see what will happen on Camp Nou lol.
