Manchester United host Barcelona in the all-important second leg of their heavyweight Europa League play-off tie tonight, with drama almost guaranteed.

Last week’s 2-2 draw was the sort of European under-the-lights thriller usually reserved for much later in the season as these two giants of the game battle over a spot in the last-16 of the continent’s secondary club competition.

Another high-quality affair is being predicted when they reconvene this evening in a blockbuster clash that has all the hallmarks of going the distance.


Date, kick-off time and venue

Manchester United vs Barcelona is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off tonight on Thursday February 23, 2023.

The match will take place at Old Trafford in Manchester.
