Barcelona vs Man United All eyes will be on the Camp Nou Tuesday, as Barcelona host Manchester United in the Champions League. Is this the night that United’s European adventure ends?

Prior to Saturday’s unconvincing 2-1 win over West Ham, Man United had lost four of five games. Ousmane Dembele & L...
