Barcelona v Man Utd Bet Boosts: Bruno Fernandes 12/1 to net first goal

The tie of the round in the Europa League sees footballing royalty meet as Barcelona face Manchester United, and we have a number of Bet Boosts available for the first leg at Camp Nou including an appealing 12/1 shot.

A mouth-watering contest is in store as Barcelona (3/4) play host to Manchester United (10/3) in the first leg of the Europa League knockout round play-offs, with both of these European heavyweights in fine form domestically.

Barcelona have raced into an 11-point lead over rivals Real Madrid at the top of La Liga under the auspices of club legend Xavi, whilst the Red Devils are ever-improving in the first year of manager Erik ten Hag's tenure as they lie in third place in the Premier League table.

Xavi's charges are on an impressive 16-match unbeaten run, but have struggled in Europe in recent times having crashed out of this year's Champions League group stages.

Ten Hag has built up strong momentum at Old Trafford, too, with the Red Devils having lost just once in all competitions since the World Cup, and the Dutchman will have his sights set on European silverware with United remaining in contention for all four available trophies this term. 

With the two giants having met in the final of the Champions League twice, with the Catalans coming out on top on both occasions in 2009 and 2011, this will be the first time ever the pair will face off in either the Europa League or UEFA Cup.

In 13 meetings between these famous clubs, Barcelona have prevailed six times, with three victories for Man United and four draws.

Tonight's Europa League encounter will provide a compelling test of just how far both teams have progressed under their current managers in a European context, with both sides well placed to make a return to the Champions League next season in light of their current league positions.

As ever, we have a range of Bet Boosts available for this big match, including an appealing 12/1 shot below...

Backing up the Boost

Although La Liga high-flyers Barcelona will prove a tough nut to crack at Camp Nou, especially considering their stellar defensive record which has seen them concede just seven goals all season in the league, Man United will travel to Catalonia full of confidence off the back of their own strong domestic form.

United are likely to look to hit Barcelona on the counter in this Europa League first leg, and maximise the influence of Marcus Rashford in the final third. 

The 25-year-old England international has been sensational for United since the resumption of domestic football following the World Cup, notching 13 goals in all competitions.

Bruno Fernandes, in fine form himself, could just provide the key to unlocking Rashford. 

With Casemiro available for selection in Europe having been sidelined through suspension in the Premier League since receiving a red card against Crystal Palace, Fernandes should be provided with more license to cause problems from an advanced midfield position against Barcelona.

With four goals in United's last nine matches, and on penalty taking duty, Fernandes appears one of the Red Devils' most likely goalscorers heading into this Camp Nou clash.
