Barcelona vs Manchester United History

Barcelona and Manchester United have a long history of rivalry, with 15 encounters in total, six of which were won by Barcelona, four by United, and five ending in a draw.

The majority of their meetings have been in the Champions League, with 10 clashes from 1994 to 2019, and three more in the European Cup Winners’ Cup.

But United have also had some memorable moments against Barcelona, such as Scholes’ 2008 rocket at Old Trafford that sent Barcelona home and put United on the path to glory in Moscow.The noise at Old Trafford was equally loud on February 23, after Fred and Antony scored to overturn a 1-0 deficit and secure their place in the 2022/23 Europa League Round of 16.

And even though they did not face Barcelona, the Camp Nou witnessed United’s greatest ever European night, when Solskjaer snatched the win against Bayern Munich with a 2-1 comeback.

Manchester United’s Double Final Sadness

United’s hopes of retaining their European crown in 2009 were dashed by Barcelona, who scored early and late in the Champions League final at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Eto’o gave Barcelona the lead with a clinical finish, but it was Messi’s header that sealed the deal, as he rose above Ferdinand and Van der Sar to meet Xavi’s perfect cross.

Two years later, United had another chance to get even with Barcelona, who had narrowly beaten Real Madrid to the La Liga title, while United had cruised to the Premier League trophy.

But once again, Barcelona proved too strong for Ferguson’s men, as they dominated the final at Wembley. Pedro opened the scoring for Barcelona, but Rooney equalized with a brilliant strike. However, Messi restored Barcelona’s lead with a stunning solo effort, and Villa added a third with a curling shot.
