Barca 1-2 Manchester United (Match Report)


Barca lost their first match of the USA Tour 2011 against Manchester United (2-1). Thiago, once again, was the Man of the Match after scoring a tremendous goal after 70 minutes.

Ultimately though, The Red Devils managed to get a victory which, considering how we've beaten them in our last 2 Champions League finals, must feel pretty much like revenge!

- As it was a friendly match, this defeat has to be given some importance but it's obviously not a tragedy. Preseason is all about improving fitness and giving less regular players a chance to prove their worth.

Riverola and Cuenca have been excellent whenever Guardiola has given them a chance, way to go boys!!

On the negative side: Afellay picked up a biceps injury and had to be substituted - Let's wait and see what the doctors think after their examination.

Whether we win or lose: ALWAYS BLAUGRANA!!!!!!

    Thiago scored a fantastic goal and again showed he will be a major contributor this season. Given that Man Utd is considerably more advanced in its preparation, the defeat was not a shock although still disappointing. However, if we play them again this season then it will count.

    Well if you think about the fact that Messi, Xavi, Pique, Puyol and Mache were absent its understandable that we lost. That and our forwards were almost non-existent in the game.
