Barcelona vs Manchester United Prediction

Barcelona vs. Manchester United Preview

Barcelona

Blaugrana won on the road on Sunday night, beating Villarreal 0-1, once again displaying a tough and rigid performance. This was the 11th consecutive victory for Xavi and his crew, possibly the team with the best form in Europe. 

We’ve stated before that Barca plays different football from what we used to see in the past. From time to time, Blaugrana delivers a confident and high win, but more frequently, they score a goal and later on kill the game. Their defense is close to perfect, with only one goal allowed in the recent seven clashes. 

Barca has only one defeat at home this year, which was against Bayern Munich. The overall record at Camp Nou is 10 wins, two draws and a loss.

Manchester United

Following a slip against Leeds last week and a draw at Trafford, 2-2, United bounced back by beating the Peacocks on the road at Elland Road, 0-2.

Since the New Year, the Red Devils have played a dozen games and recorded nine victories, with two draws and one defeat. Only two contests throughout that interval haven’t ended with at least three scores. 

United has recently been solid on the road, winning three of the previous five road trips, now conceding in neither of those contests. The loss was in London vs. Arsenal, 3-2 and one draw at Selhurst against Crystal Palace, 1-1.

Barcelona vs. Manchester United Head to Head

In 2009 and 2011, these clubs played in the UEFA Champions League finals, and Barca had more success on both occasions. Overall, they’ve played 13 times, and United has three wins, Barca six, while four clashes saw a draw. 

Barcelona vs. Manchester United Prediction

Both Xavi and Ten Hag created formidable defenses, and as you can see, these two units have posted plenty of clean sheets throughout the past few weeks. This is also the first 90 minutes of the matchup, and the approaches on both sides will be a bit more conservative. All in all, the best pick here is under 2.5 goals. 

Our verdict: Under 2.5 goals
