The Red Devils lost 1-0 on the night and hardly threatened the visitor's goal. Lionel Messi was relatively quiet but it was his moment of magic that created the opportunity for Luis Suarez.
The former Liverpool striker headed the ball toward the goal before it was turned in by United's Luke Shaw.
In the other quarter-final Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring at the end of the first half in Amsterdam, before Ajax equalised in the first minute of the second half.
David Neres produced a scintillating run and solo finish to amaze the football world!
One can read how the South African media, football players and legends reacted to these matches on Wednesday.

@robertmarawa with VAR in Place it is safe to say football can now be played without a Ref inside the stadium.— SOSOBALA KHEKHEKHE II (@PaulMzoxolo) April 10, 2019
A whistle will be blown through the speakers.
Yellow cards and red cards will be shown throgh the big screen.
That is wat we call 4th industrial revolution

Not so long to go before the BIG Game kicks off. What are your thoughts on the game?? If you vote Man United, its probably because you are a United fan right 🤭 I know everyone else will be for Barca. LETS GO UNIITED 👹— Janine Van Wyk (@Janinevanwyk5) April 10, 2019

Months ago I suggested TV studios bring in a ref to calm viewers instead of creating issues with different pundits opinions, and it's good to see English TV do this with refs explaining the VAR decision. With hand-ball they're looking at distance, player stretch & reaction time— Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) April 10, 2019
