WATCH: Manchester United v Barcelona discussion

Graham Hunter, Kelly Somers and Sam Matterface share their thoughts ahead of Barcelona's trip to Old Trafford, as they take on Manchester United in the second leg of their Europa League play-off tie.

Thursday sees round two of the clash between European heavyweights Manchester United (5/4) and Barcelona (9/4), with the Spanish giants travelling to Manchester following the 2-2 draw at their patch last week. 

The first leg treated football fans to one of the games of the season, with both sides showcasing their energetic attacking talent - including the red-hot Marcus Rashford who extended his scoring streak to four games in a row. 

It was a game so good that neither team could leave with a numerical edge, although psychologically it is advantage to the Red Devils who just require a win on home turf to progress to the round of 16.

Barcelona will be left to rue the missed opportunity to travel to Manchester with an advantage, as they will be without the talented trio of Ousmane Dembele, Gavi and Pedri. 

In a game where goals will be needed, the omission of these three creative-forces will be tough to take for Xavi's side, but the Catalan club do possess one of the tightest defences in Europe and if they can utilise it to keep United and star man Rashford quiet, they may just be in with a shout. 

In the video above, Sam Matterface, Kelly Somers and Graham Hunter discuss the game, and how they think it will pan out prior to one of the European Giants progressing to the next round.
