Manchester United Vs Barcelona: Luke Shaw's Own Goal Gives Barca Edge
Messi and Suarez

Barcelona have Luke Shaw to thank as the Manchester United defender’s own goal handed the Catalan team the advantage in their Champions League quarter-final first leg at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

The United left-back gave Barca a deserved lead on 12 minutes when he deflected Luis Suarez’s header into his own net, with the goal confirmed following a VAR review.

United responded well to the early setback, halting Barca’s dominance on the ball, but their cause was undone by a toothless attacking display which failed to yield a single shot on target.

After overcoming a two-goal deficit to knock out Paris Saint-Germain in the previous round, United will need to produce another comeback to progress to the semi-finals when they travel to the Nou Camp on April 16.
