Barcelona vs Man Utd

Barcelona vs Man Utd Live : Barcelona vs Man Utd for their crunch Champions League quarter-final second leg on Tuesday night.Barcelona won for the last time in 2015, but this could be the year of their rival with rival Real Madrid. Manchester United won for the last time in 2008 and desperately returns to the glorious days of the new manager Ole Gunnar Solskyer.

On Tuesday, Manchester United will travel to Barcelona for the second leg of its Champions League quarterfinal tie after losing the opener 1-0 last week.
The two clubs became embroiled in a row over ticket prices soon after the draw for the last eight was made last month with United furious that its fans were being charged £102 ($134), claiming they “are again being subjected to increased/excessive ticket prices from the host club.”

For many football fans, the opportunity to watch their team take on Barcelona at Camp Nou is a bucket list dream.

Just don’t expect the dream to come cheap. Whether it be Barcelona, Madrid, London or Paris, the cost of football and ticket prices in particular, is generating more and more criticism.

In a statement published on its website, United confirmed it had taken the “difficult decision” to charge Barcelona supporters the same price instead of the normal £75 ($98) it charges.
United said it would use the additional £27 to subsidize its own supporters traveling to Spain for the second leg as it did for games against Valencia in the group stage, and against Sevilla last season. United has been given 4,160 tickets for the tie.
A spokesman for Barcelona told CNN that ticket prices for the United game had not been increased and that the price would have been the same for any opponent in the quarterfinal.The spokesman added that at no point did United ask for ticket prices to be reduced.

He also underlined the club’s low season ticket prices, which includes Champions League games. Many clubs make fans pay for Champions League games on top of their regular season tickets.As of Friday April 12, there were still tickets being sold on Barcelona’s official site with the cheapest priced at €159 ($180). The most expensive ticket available was set at €3,290 ($3,723) which includes access to the premium lounge and catering, according to the description on the website.
Duncan Drasdo, chief executive of Manchester United Fans Trust, wants to see a cap on ticket prices for away fans in European competition, similar to the £30 limit imposed upon clubs by the English Premier League.
“The cap works pretty well in the Premier League, as long as ticket allocations are defended,” Drasdo told CNN.
“The Premier League has recognized that as an away fan you are not a customer of the home club and so you’re ripe for exploitation.”The home club shouldn’t be completely free to set ticket prices at any level it wishes.”
Drasdo, who is traveling to Barcelona with his two children, was also critical of airlines who he says increase their prices minutes after the draw has taken place.
It means that plenty of fans, like Drasdo, often have to take longer routes to reach their destination.On this occasion, he is traveling from Manchester to Liverpool airport, then flying to the island of Ibiza, staying overnight, and then flying to Barcelona the next morning.

For the return journey, he will fly from Barcelona to Nantes in France, and then on to Manchester.Even with indirect flights, Drasdo says he spends on average around £450 ($588) per European away game, meaning that this season alone he would have coughed up approximately £2,250 ($2,942) on five matches.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men trail by a single goal after last week’s first leg at Old Trafford where a Luke Shaw own goal was enough to separate the two sides.History is against them with Barca a fearsome prospect on their own patch.

But Solskjaer knows a thing or two about springing a surprise at the Nou Camp and will be buoyed by the heroics in Paris earlier in the tournament.
Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, should he play, will be key here with their pace clearly set to provide both Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet with difficulties.

Ander Herrera’s legs will be missed in the middle of the park as will the suspended Shaw’s workrate on the left flank – expect Barca to try and play keep away early on to take any lasting sting out of the visitors. Luis Suarez’s energy figures to once again be a problem for Chris Smalling to contain.

Lionel Messi is fit after his first-leg tangle with Smalling and he’ll fancy himself to get on the scoresheet after firing a blank a week ago.

There could well be a goal in it for United too if everything breaks right, but it’s hard to envision the hosts not scoring again themselves.

Juventus vs Ajax

Juventus vs Ajax Live : Juventus vs Ajax in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday, with the two sides level at 1-1 after the first leg in Amsterdam.Ajax and Juventus finished all square after the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal played in Holland with a score of 1-1, The two sides go into the game level after the first game last week finished 1-1 at the Amsterdam Arena.

Juventus’ hunt for Champions League glory continues on Tuesday as they face off against Ajax in the second leg of their quarter-final clash.​I Bianconeri have the upper hand in the tie after Cristiano Ronaldo bagged an away goal during the 1-1 draw at the Johan Cruijff ArenA last Wednesday, but the job is far from finished just yet.

Massimiliano Allegri made wholesale changes for his side’s Serie A defeat against SPAL at the weekend, but he’s more than likely to revert back to a much more familiar looking side on Tuesday.The Italian champions did not have it all their own way in the first leg in Amsterdam and may have been lucky to come away with a 1-1 draw.

Yet another Cristiano Ronaldo strike but the Old Lady in control just before half-time, only for Ajax to come roaring back in the second-half.Massimiliano Allegri will be confident of getting job done on their own patch but will be weary of a fearless Ajax side.

The Dutch team have an array of young talent at their disposal and this may be their best chance of winning the competition.Ajax are in the unknown now and they want to keep going. Win this and they will be in their first Champions League semi-final since 1997, when they were beaten Juventus, back then the reigning European champions. They won that title on penalties against Ajax the previous year but that was a different football generation.

This was before Bosman, before the rise of the Premier League, before international benefactor owners. Ajax were the dukes of the old order, an order that has been washed away by foreign money, largely channelled through England. And they have had to build a new team from a position of weakness, made of players who only know about the glory days second-hand. Matthijs De Ligt and Frenkie De Jong were not even born for the 1997 semis.

Even the players brought in last year to provide some experience are miles outside of their comfort zone. Dusan Tadic had never played in the Champions League before arriving at Ajax, the furthest Daley Blind got at Manchester United was the the group stage, twice.

So all Ajax have to fall back on on Tuesday night in Turin is themselves and their ability. But the one thing they have shown this season is that they can beat any other team in the world on their day. What other lesson can you draw from their 4-1 win at the Bernabeu last month, against the team who had just won this unrepeatable competition three years in a row?

Even in other games that they did not win – the 2-1 home defeat to Real Madrid, the two group stage draws with Bayern Munich, last week’s 1-1 draw in Amsterdam – Ajax showed how at home they are at this level. They were better than Juventus in the first leg, dominating possession and creating enough chances to win. Frenkie De Jong was the best player on the pitch, and it was not even close.

So the question ahead of Tuesday night’s game is whether Ajax can do this all over again. Can they play the same fearless Ajax football even in this, their biggest game for a generation? Can they push eight outfield players up the pitch, leaving only the centre-backs behind, without exposing themselves on the counter? In short, can they make up in quality and bravery what they lack in experience?

Because on Tuesday night Ajax are up against the team who has been here before more than almost anyone else. Juventus, of course, lost the 2015 and 2017 finals, and are desperate to go one better this year. So desperate, in fact, that they added Cristiano Ronaldo – five time Champions League winner – to a team that already knew how to handle itself in these occasions.
