Two goals from Lionel Messi helped Barcelona to a 3-0 defeat of Manchester United on Tuesday and a 4-0 aggregate triumph in their Champions League quarter-final tie.
With a 1-0 advantage from the first meeting at Old Trafford, the Catalans took command inside the first 20 minutes thanks to a double from their number 10, the second of which owed plenty to a dreadful mistake from David de Gea.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer named an attacking line-up featuring Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford, but the blow of those first-half goals seemed to drain any hope of repeating the kind of performance they produced to stun Paris Saint-Germain in France in the last 16.
The tie was firmly put to bed by a sublime goal from Philippe Coutinho, who may get the chance to face old club Liverpool in the semi-finals if they see off Porto on Wednesday.
Rashford prodded a shot against the bar in a positive start from United, but they engineered their own downfall within the space of four minutes.
Ashley Young dithered in possession and lost the ball near his own box, allowing Messi to step into space and drill a shot beyond De Gea and into the bottom-left corner.
The United keeper could do little about it, but he endured a calamitous moment 20 minutes in, allowing Messi's tame right-foot shot to squeeze beneath his body and into the net.
De Gea denied a certain Sergi Roberto goal after Messi left Phil Jones chasing shadows, but he was again helpless as Barca struck a third on the hour mark, Coutinho sending a stunning strike beyond his outstretched right hand.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen made a magnificent 90th-minute save from substitute Alexis Sanchez, but United were well beaten and must now fight to turn around their recent form after a fifth defeat in seven games in all competitions.
Perhaps the final word should go to our predictor Pablo! Who is pleased as punch! Great shout in predicting Messi would score two and Barca would win the game! All that, and he's watching beIN SPORTS on a massive projector! What a lad!
Chance! Substitute Alexis Sanchez goes close with a header only to be denied by a stunning ter Stegen save!
Chance! Oh my! Messi with an overhead! So close!
Goal! Philippe Coutinho curls one into the top corner! What a beauty! The tie is beyond doubt now! As Barca
Back to the action! Messi inches away from a hat-trick, Ashley Young gets a foot to the shot!
Half-Time Pablo Update! Very relaxed from our predictor! Remember, if the score stays the same his bold Messi brace prediction will be correct! What a ruse!
Save!? How did de Gea keep that out?!? Messi is ripping United to shreds! A quick pass to Arthur who squares it to Sergi Roberto for a simple tap in at the back post, against the odds de Gea somehow keeps the ball out, although i'm not sure how much he knew about it! Unbelievable!
Goal! Another Messi goal (GREAT CALL PABS) his shot slips under David de Gea, shocking from the United keeper!
Little update from our man Pablo Faggiano! He's happy with that!
Goal! Who else but Leo Messi (Great Call Pabs) Messi picks up a loose pass from Ashley Young, cuts inside and drills a shot into the bottom corner out of reach of de Gea! Wow!
Penalty?! Ivan Rakatic takes a tumble in the box under a tackle from Fred, and after a quick VAR check, it's not given!
Chance! Oh my! Rashford clips the crossbar with seconds on the clock!
The Champpppionnnns! Nearly game time in Barcelona!
Yet more Gary Neville gold! Talking about *That* Champions League final at the Nou Camp!
"If #MUFC come out of tonight in the semi-final of the #UCL then I'll be out here for another 2 or 3 days partying harder than I did in 1999!" #beINUCL— beIN SPORTS (@beINSPORTS) April 16, 2019

A little bit of team insight from Gary Neville! Maybe United will be playing with a midfield diamond?
Three Changes for Manchester United from the first-leg. Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard come into the front three, whilst Phil Jones replaces the suspended Luke Shaw. The question is will Jones play at center back or right back? Time will tell!
Team news is in! Barca up first! One change from the side that started in Manchester! Sergi Roberto is in for Nelson Samedo!

🔵🔴 Força Barça!
What an arena! We are 35 minutes away from game time!
Plenty of former United players knocking about!
So we have some early team news with two class of 92 legends!
Uhoh! This Leo Messi stat is not for Manchester United fans!
More fun with Gary Neville who was with us earlier building up for the game, as the former United man looked back on his memories from the Nou Camp, including a 7-0 thrashing by Barca whilst as Valencia manager!
Early team news from Matt Critchley, with Alexis Sanchez in the squad, will United go all out tonight?
Prediction Time! I reached out to work colleague Pablo Faggiano (pictured here with RnB crooner & Fyre Festival founder Ja Rule) this was his prediction for the big match! " Barca wins with two goals from Messi" razor-sharp insight there. Ja Rule was unavailable for a prediction.
Barca are all ready to go! You get the feeling that the Catalans were not at their best in the first-leg. Surely they can get the better of United tonight!
We've been chatting to former Manchester United player Gary Neville before the game, he gave us some interesting insights on a potential team selection. More worrying Neville, he has branded United progressing tonight as a "Freak Incident".
So here we go! Can Manchester United pull off another shock in Europe and dump out Barcelona? Well, history might be on their side as Barca have yet to progress past the quarter-finals in the last three seasons!
Come on United! 🔴⚪⚫ pic.twitter.com/ZshnoVvYEA— Manchester United (@ManUtd) April 16, 2019
