UEFA Europa League 2023 Manchester United vs Barcelona: Live Streaming, Where to Watch
Manchester United and FC Barcelona may advance to the 2022-23 Europa League Round of 16 when they meet at Old Trafford on Thursday for the second half of their knockout match after a 2-2 draw in the first leg at Camp Nou.
Marcus Rashford would hunt down and flip the scoreboard in United’s favour from the minute Marcos Alonso got the opener in Spain, scoring one and forcing an own-goal from Jules Kounde.
After a flurry of saves from David de Gea, Raphinha eventually struck the back of the goal to set up a thrilling second leg showdown at the Theatre of Dreams.

How to live stream Manchester United vs Barcelona
The Manchester United vs Barcelona Europa League clash can be live streamed on Sony LIV.
Lisandro Martinez and Marcel Sabitzer are available for the second leg after missing the previous tie on account of their bans, with Casemiro continuing in the middle, irrespective of the Brazilian completing his three-game domestic suspension.
Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek won’t be back anytime soon. The likes of Anthony Martial, Harry Maguire and Antony are edging closer to return, although Jadon Sancho looks set to slot in for the latter over Alejandro Garnacho as well.
With Martinez back, Raphael Varane would leave Victor Lindelof on the bench, while Marcus Rashford should take back the number 10 role from Wout Weghorst.
Gavi is suspended due to the accumulation of yellow cards, and with Pedri a victim of a hamstring injury from the first-leg, the midfield duo joins Ousmane Dembele on the sidelines, who is out with a thigh injury.
Ronald Araujo returns after serving a domestic ban, and Sergio Busquets will need to play alongside Frenkie de Jong and Franck Kessie in the middle. No Gavi means Ansu Fati starts on the left.

This is shaping up to be another great match, with United having the advantage due to home advantage. Yet, anything short than a clinical performance might result in Xavi’s players punishing Ten Hag’s hosts.
