What’s the history?
Barcelona trolled Manchester United after their comfortable 3-0 win at the Nou Camp, which knocked out the Red Devils out of the Champions League.
In case you didn’t know…
After enduring a 1-0 defeat in the primary leg of the Champions League quarter-finals at Old Trafford, the Red Devils were given little chance of a rebound because of Barcelona’s staggering record at their home ground.
In the long run, the Catalan mammoths proved too a lot for the Red Devils, whose expectations of securing another comeback died when Lionel Messi scored twice in the span of five minutes in the first half. Two costly oversights from Ashley Young and David De Gea prompted the two goals, and United were everything except out soon after 20 minutes.
Messi was clearly happy with his brace.
“I was lucky [on the first goal],” he admitted.
“The second I had even more luck. But the important thing is that we achieved our goal of reaching the quarter-finals, which we hadn’t for a long time.”
“It was spectacular. This is who we are. We were cold and nervous for the first five minutes. I don’t know why, but then we took control.”
The Blaugrana captain presently remains the top scorer of the Champions League this season with 10 objectives and leads the race for European Golden Shoe with 33 alliance goals. The Argentine likewise finished in the Quarter Finals after numerous seasons.
The heart of the issue
Messi is head and shoulders over the rest in the present crusade and portrayed it by and by against Manchester United.
Minutes after their triumph the previous evening, the official Barcelona twitter account uploaded a picture of Lionel Messi alongside the caption ‘Messi at the wheel’.
The post was a brassy endeavor of mocking Manchester United’s serenade ‘Ole’s in the driver’s seat’, after the United boss rejuvenation since taking charge of Red Devils last December.
Manchester United will face Everton, Manchester City and Chelsea next in the Premier League. The Red Devils still have a lot to play this season as they fight to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League.
