Manchester United Vs Barcelona Match Report – Barcelona has been a revelation in 2014-15 season with grabbing all the major titles including La Liga and UEFA Champions league 2015 but they were thrashed to a deserving enough loss to English Giants Man United as Barcelona clearly lacked the skills and fierce touch as they missed their Talismanic power Lionel Messi and the rising superstar Neymar Jr.
Manchester United Defeats Barcelona 3-1:
Manchester United was furious and very balanced as they netted 3 goals to Barca’s 1 at International Champions Cup held in Levi’s stadium, California. Man U’s striker Wayne Rooney notched a goal while Jesse Lingard and Adnan Janujaz were other goal scorers for the English Club. Barcelona could only net a single goal by Rafinha in last minutes of the game. Barcelona played their typical game with percent of possession and attempted 13 shots on the goals of which 6 were on the target but could manage only a single goal as they missed the game maker Messi. The result also shows the dependency of the Spanish club FC Barcelona on its Argentine striker and Brazilian superstar.
Luiz Enrique had their big names on the field including Luis Suarez, Pedro, Pique, Andres Iniesta and others but he couldn’t overcome the Van Gaal’s Manchester United who performed to their best potential. The win would have boosted Blaugrana’s confidence in the absence of Messi for the new starting season but it is expected that Messi would join Nou Camp around August 3 and the team would gain its confidence back.
