The world football heritage witnessed last night, manchester united vs barcelona at Camp Nou and no one expected an energetic match ever.
Both the teams played well and entertained the whole stadium with their gameplay. Marcus Rashford once again beat the goalkeeper and found himself on the scoreboard.
Barcelona’s side undoubtedly played brilliantly, Gavi and Pedri both of them were making it difficult for the Manchester United defensive side and trying to dismantle them.
It was a Europa League round of 16 matches, but for the fans, it was more than that in every term and surely it was.
Manchester United Vs Barcelona – Classic Europa League Clash
Ever since the kickoff whistle both the teams were creating chances to find the net in the first half. Robert Lewandowski 2021’s Best FIFA Player of the Year winner also had some great opportunities to score for his team but couldn’t.
Jadon Sancho looked like little bit shaggy in the first half, even Manchester United had several chances in the first half to get the lead but couldn’t redeem it.
The second half began and in the 50th minute, Marcos Alonso with the header gave his Spanish side a lead as Fred was unable to mark him properly.
But within three minutes Marcus Rashford with the brilliant strike beat Ter Stegan in his style with the rocket shot.
A few minutes later Rashford once again played a brilliant ball and unfortunately, the ball touched Kounde.
Everything was going great until Fred’s handball gave the big opportunity to Barcelona to equalize the game and turn the match into a draw. Raphinha found the perfect spot and equalized it.
Erik Ten Hag Frustrated Over Foul
Erik Ten Hag was angry over the foul not given in United’s favor which would have been a penalty for the united.
“At 2-1, it was a clear foul on Marcus Rashford,” said Ten Hag. “We can discuss if it’s inside the box or outside the box, but definitely, it’s a red card.
“I asked the referee why. He said it was outside the box and that it was no foul. The linesman and referee were in a very good position to see and I think we had VAR.
“It’s not good, it was a really bad decision. Maybe they were pressed by the pressure Barca made, but they can’t be at this high level of European football.
No doubt, Manchester United is at the right moment after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and since then United is on the victory road.
