Odds: United +130; Draw: +240; Barca +200 (via Caesars Sportsbook)
United: After serving last week's European bans, Lisandro Martinez and Marcel Sabitzer are now available for play. Although having just served his domestic suspension, Casemiro is also available, while Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek are still out with chronic injuries. Because of the injuries to Anthony Martial, Harry Maguire, and Antony before Thursday, Jadon Sancho is probably engaged in this situation — maybe ahead of Alejandro Garnacho. Victor Lindelof should be able to join Wout Weghorst on the bench until Raphael Varane returns since his performance against Leicester City was not as successful as Ten Hag would have wanted. Because of his outstanding recent play, Marcus Rashford will be the primary goal danger for the home team.
Barca: Pedri is sidelined with a hamstring injury, while Gavi is banned after receiving too many yellow cards. But, Ronald Araujo's domestic suspension has no bearing on him in this situation, while Sergio Busquets was on the bench against Celta Vigo due to his ankle ailment. Ousmane Dembele is also out with a thigh problem. The Spaniard may start in the midfield with Frenkie de Jong and Franck Kessie, while Ansu Fati might come out ahead of Ferran Torres.
This game is building up to be another spectacular one, and United should have the lead against Barcelona thanks to home field advantage. Yet, Xavi's team may punish Ten Hag's hosts if they don't put on a clinical performance. Pick: Barcelona 1, United 2.
