Manchester United vs Barcelona - Champions League quarter-final: LIVE score updates at Old
  • Barcelona took an early lead after Luis Suarez' header delfected in off Luke Shaw
  • Manchester United XI: De Gea, Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw, Dalot, McTominay, Fred, Pogba, Rashford, Lukaku;
  • Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba, Busquets, Arthur, Rakitic, Coutinho, Messi, Suarez;
  • 65' Messi plays it into Suarez, who uses his strength to hold the ball up in the box and lay it off for the arriving Alba. The defender rushes on to the ball and puts his foot through but again de Gea is there to save with his feet.
    Double chance for Barcelona
    65' Vidal comes of for Coutinho and Sergi Roberto replaces Arthur.
    64' After a patient build-up the ball makes its way over to Semedo on the right. The defender slots a clever ball in behind for Suarez but the striker uncharacteristically rushes his shot and fires it into the side netting. 
    58' United doing well to keep this intensity up. Forcing Barcelona in a number of mistakes. Martial has been sent out to warm up. We could seen the Frenchman introduced shortly.
    53' United certainly on top at the moment. They are winning every second ball and are doing a really efficient job of keeping Barcelona's key players quiet. Messi has barely had a kick in this half but United need to try and capatilise on it.
    51' Ter Stegen fails to deal with a cross into the box with his punch falling straight to Rashford. The United man had time to control it but opts to shoot first time and completely scuffs it. 
    50' Not much to report from these opening five minutes. Neither side has started this half with any fluency.
    And United get us back underway here.
