Paul Scholes makes Manchester United vs Barcelona prediction

Manchester United lost first leg of Champions League 1/4 against Barcelona. The only goal in the game was an own goal scored by Luke Shaw in the 12th minute.

After their defeat, the Red Devils won 2-1 in a Premier League game against West Ham.

And now, United is preparing to play the second leg of the 1/4 final on April 16 at Camp Nou.

Ahead of the second leg, former footballer Paul Scholes made a prediction claiming that he can’t see Manchester United beating Barcelona at the Nou Camp to secure qualification to the Champions League semi-final.

Scholes told BT Sport: “Today was the most important one because can you really go to Barcelona and see them winning? It’s doubtful – of course they’ve got a chance but it’s very difficult.

“To get in the Champions League the most realistic chance is top four. Did they prioritise this game I’m not sure. They’ve got big games coming up but I don’t think this is the best Barcelona team we’ve seen.

“United went to Paris Saint-Germain and did a great job there – I think PSG are possibly a better team than Barcelona.”
