Manchester United vs Barcelona, barca scores 0-1 live quarter final


GOAL! Man Utd 0 Barcelona 1 (Suarez, 12 min)

GOOOAAA-no! Barcelona – and Luis Suarez – think they have the lead, but the assistant’s flag intervenes! The referee consults VAR, which confirms Suarez was a yard onside as he nodded the ball back across goal and in off Luke Shaw’s body! Barcelona do lead!

Rashford’s pace briefly worries Gerard Pique in a one-on-one but a 10-yard headstart is enough for the former United man to scuttle the ball safely back to Ter Stegen. Barcelona respond with some benign halfway-line passing, which Solskjaer won’t mind.

Messi drops deep to try and conduct some early Barcelona pressure, but Suarez’s back is turned as the ball is floated in his direction. At the other end, Rashford springs the Barca offside trap, but Marc-Andre ter Stegen is out quickly to sweep up the danger!

Sergio Busquets goes in high in a desperate attempt to stop Scott McTominay and, despite him escaping a yellow card, United have a promising position 30 yards from goal. Marcus Rashford fancies it…and he thumps one just high and wide! Lovely connection, but an element of hit and hope.

Ashley Young is next to fly into a tackle, catching Coutino – the referee widely gestures that he won’t tolerate another.
