Manchester United will have to deal with a lengthening list of absentees after Erik ten Hag revealed that Anthony Martial, Scott McTominay and Antony will not be available for Thursday’s match. They join Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek who face lengthy spells on the sidelines.

The English club will also be without the suspended Lisandro Martinez and Marcel Sabitzer after the pair received three yellow cards in the group stages, the latter doing so in the Champions League for Bayern Munich before his January loan move.

Predicted line-ups

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, Christensen, Balde; Kessie, de Jong, Pedri; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Gavi

Manchester United: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Shaw, Malacia; Casemiro, Fred; Rashford, Fernandes, Garnacho; Weghorst.


Barcelona: 8/11

Draw: 14/5

Manchester United: 7/2


It will be a huge task for Man United on Thursday away at Camp Nou. Barcelona are in imperious form and with a wealth of young talent to support the talismanic Robert Lewandowski in attack. United, meanwhile, will miss Martinez’s intelligence at the back and Eriksen’s calming presence in the middle of the park and may be left relying on a moment of magic from the in-form Marcus Rashford.
