Barcelona vs Man Utd Live Stream: Watch the Champions League online this Tuesday
Two giants of the game, Man Utd and Barcelona, will battle it out for a place in this season’s Champions League semi final at the Camp Nou − a stadium Utd fans and Ole Gunnar Solksjaer have very fond memories of − tonight, with the Catalan side the overwhelming favourites. Our guide reveals all you need to know to watch Barcelona vs Man Utd online, including full live stream details and the kick-off time.
They can’t do it again, can they? Man Utd lost 1-0 in the first leg six days ago but, as we saw at the Parc des Princes in March, Solksjaer’s men have a knockout blow in them.

The last time these sides met in the Champions League (before last week’s encounter) was in the 2011 final at Wembley, when they were managed by Sir Alex Ferguson and Pep Guardiola, respectively. Seems a long time ago, doesn’t it. The Red Devils were dominated on that occasion, with Barcelona coming out 3-1 winners.
On paper, tonight’s game is a mismatch. A club that can regularly decide to leave Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho on the bench should have nothing to fear against a side that currently sits sixth in the Premier League, has lost four of their last six games, and was thoroughly outplayed by West Ham over the weekend.
What’s more, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are in excellent form, even by their standards. I don’t imagine Phil Jones, Chris Smalling or Victor Lindelof had a particularly restful sleep last night.
And yet, you never know quite what to expect from Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men. Few, if any, expected them to make it past Kylian Mbappe’s PSG in the last round, and here they are.
Things should be much different this time around: United have no choice but to attack to at least score a goal and send the game to extra-time. Unfortunately for Man U, Barcelona has routinely dominated at home all season long, pouring in goals and picking apart opponents from start to finish. The Blaugrana haven’t lost at home in any competition in six months, and they’re yet to taste defeat at Camp Nou in four Champions League games this season. If they can avoid defeat again, they’ll reach the semifinal for the first time in four years.
Man Utd XI: De Gea; Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw; Matic, McTominay, Pogba; Lingard, Rashford, Martial
