Half-time email: "Everything is not lost to United," says Charles Antaki. "They have a secret agent on Barcelona's side, that is, Philippe Coutinho, who does exceptionally well by contributing virtually nothing and giving the ball away in a charitable way. Apparently, he is looking for a new club in the summer." 19659004] I think Barca yesterday said he was definitely staying, but I'm not quite surprised that he is fighting. First of all, he is not a blade – first and foremost on a page that likes to stretch the track – and he is a player who can win you a game, but it doesn't really help you control it. If he does not stick in brilliant finish from the edge of the box, he generally does not do so much.
I have no idea how United is approaching the other half. Trying to keep the score down is not good for business, especially if it doesn't work, but trying to fight back asks for trouble. Exciting!
Half time: Barcelona 2-0 Manchester United (agg. 3-0)
United gave it a brave go in the early stages and has Rashford not scored hit the bar, who knows. Ok, we all do – Barca has Messi, and in the context of this tie – in connection with most tapes – it's enough. 3.51 µm EDT 15:51
