United To Face Barcelona

You might be sick to the back teeth with them but Manchester United have today announced that we will play another friendly against Barcelona this summer.

Following last year’s Champions League final defeat against Barcelona, we played them again during the pre-season in Washington DC. 82,000 fans attended the game which United won 2-1, thanks to goals from Nani and Michael Owen.

United will face Barcelona this summer in Gothenburg on Wednesday 8 August at the Ullevi Stadium.

Three days earlier United will be in Norway three days earlier to play Valerenga.

    Never mind Barca. Should’ve organised a game with Bilbao – get that one off our backs first.

    It’s not like its gonna be as interesting as a champions league game but I’ll almost certainly watch it anyway

  4. lucas says:

    This is a good match….ManU can win again since this is a friendly game and as long as they keep loosing against FC Barcelona Champions league final as usual ;-)

    Another defeat will continue to make our rivals see reasons to give us stick about how barca normally batter us

    Friendly match just announced and some people here are already saying we will get battered. Great way to support your team. Write us off even before the ball is kicked.
