Barcelona, meanwhile, all but tied up the Primera Division title at the weekend as they defeated Atletico Madrid 2-0 at home, leaving Ernesto Valverde’s side with the luxury of being able to focus their energy towards their European campaign.

Betting & Match Odds
Manchester United produced one of the greatest Champions League comebacks of all time as they went to Paris Saint-Germain and won 3-1 last month, propelling them through to the quarter-finals of the competition on the away goals rule after a 3-3 draw on aggregate.
In the final
It is a tie that the Red Devils are looking forward to, with centre-back Chris Smalling admitting that they cheered when they were drawn against the Catalan side.
“We are Manchester United and we are representing one of the biggest clubs in the world,” he told the Daily Star. “Fear is not the word. Respect is the word.
“We also have to trust ourselves and know that if we have a good day we can give them a game.
“Obviously they are in a good moment and they are top of the table in Spain but we are confident that we are Manchester United and we can have two good games and we can qualify.”
Indeed, going into this encounter, the mood around Old Trafford is a distinctly confident one, despite three defeats in their last four matches.

The Camp Nou side continue to set the standard in Spain, where they opened up a decisive 11-point advantage at the top of the table with a 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid at the weekend.
Unlike United, who are forced to battle hard on two fronts as they seek to secure a
Valverde, however, is approaching the tie mindful of the danger that their opponents carry in their ranks.
“They are a powerful team,” he warned his players. “Physically they are really strong and they know how to put pressure on their opponents. They have players who are physically very powerful, and they can be dangerous strategically as well.
Even if Barca do get the win on Wednesday, United have shown already this season that they are not a side to discount. This classic tie is set to go all the way.
