Solsjkaer’s men did not manage a shot on target in the first leg and they will come up against some serious firepower in Spain on Tuesday evening
An own goal was the only strike of the game at Old Trafford in last week’s first leg of this Champions League quarter-final tie as Luis Suarez’s header was deflected in by Luke Shaw.
The Uruguayan is the second-shortest priced player to net at the Camp Nou behind Lionel Messi, who will look to add to his tally of eight goals in this season’s competition.
Messi is offered at just 11/25 (1.44) with William Hill to get his name on the scoresheet and the 31-year-old has scored seven of his eight European goals this term in Barcelona.
United more prolific on the road
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have managed just a single goal in five home Champions League matches, but on the road however it has been a different story with the Reds scoring in all four of their games, netting nine goals in the process.
As well as winning in the French capital, the Premier League outfit have also won in Turin this season where Juan Mata scored a vital goal against Juventus. The Spaniard is offered at 6/1 (7.00) to net on his return to his home country.
Tips and predictions
The price of 9/2 (5.50) for Messi to score in both halves looks tempting for a value bet, while he is also available at 13/10 (2.30) to score Barcelona’s first goal which seems like a logical selection.
The hosts’ number 10 has netted in four Champions League matches this season and has been his side’s first scorer in three of those.
