Our defenders will be lucky to stand on his shadow.
Yeah. I hope they get beaten by the man and not the reputation though. Barca can be beaten.

Semedo in the Starting XI according to Marca. Utd has a big chance to exploit in Barça's left wing...Valverde is making a big mistake by not fully trusting S.Roberto.

Also, I doubt Coutinho will be worth shite. I predict he'll be the first to go (min 60-75).

4-3-3 with Dalot as RW or 3-5-2?Will be interesting to see how we line up....I think it could be a 4-3-3...

I think the gulf in quality is bigger than in 2011. Could be the last CL home match this decade

We need plenty luck today that's for sure plus our concentration levels need to be 115% for the entire 97 mins

If this is the so called all conquering barca, then we really do have a different level of league.

Utd have been pretty much in control without scoring.

English CL winner this year imo

Watching the game
Barca were poor but still won easily enough. We're still in the game but if you offered me a score draw over there I'd almost be tempted to take it rather than risk a hammering. Almost, but not quite!

Expended a lot of energy in that match, hardly ideal preparation. I do wonder if Matic might go straight back in to the first team if fit as a pair of fresh legs, Mctom too. Dalot at RB and Young at LB?

Here, there, everywhere...
Since Luke is suspended and we have no other LB, I would prefer we go with 5 at the back.

De Gea
Smalling Lindelof Jones
Young Fred McTommy Dalot
Pogba
Lukaku Rashford
Don't think we have much of a chance. Barca rested nearly their entire 11 for the game today. They'll be fresh and rearing to go.
