Manchester United visits Barcelona in the absolute derby of the Europa League playoffs. The game takes place at Camp Nou this Thursday night.

Before Betting on Barcelona vs. Manchester United

Barca is demolishing anything that stands in its way and is currently topping the La Liga standings. Their most recent win was against Villarreal on the road, 0-1, and it was the fifth in the past six in which Blaugrana kept a clean sheet. 

Moreover, the Spanish powerhouse rides an 11-game winning streak coming into the matchup with United and looks perfectly balanced. They aren’t playing as attractive football as before, but they are rational and very effective. 

Manchester United is also on the rise, not losing in the last six events, and winning five of them. Following a 2-2 draw at home against Leeds on Wednesday, the Red Devils went to Elland Road and defeated the Peacocks 0-2 just a few days later.

In those six contests, Erik Ten Hag’s crew scored at least twice, while on the other side, it kept its net intact on three occasions. They have significantly improved since the start of this calendar year and look very serious.

Both units have reliable defenses who are playing almost perfectly these days. Because of that, and the fact that it is the first of two games, we don’t expect to see a high number of goals at Camp Nou.
