Bayern Munich’s former midfielder, Owen Hargreaves has told Man United that they must avoid facing Barcelona in the knockout stages of the Europa League.
Recall that the Red Devils needed to beat Real Sociedad with at least two goals to finish top of Group E, but could score just once on Thursday night, thanks to Gamacho’s first half strike.
This ultimately means that Ajax, Juventus and Barcelona are among the teams Manchester United could face in the play-off in February.
These are the teams that finished third from their various Champions League groups and would face the teams that came second from the Europa League.
However, in a chat with BT Sport, Hargreaves stated that facing Barca will be a tough test for Man United.
“I’m not like Scholesey, I hope they avoid Barca,” Hargreaves told BT Sport.
“Get Barca in the final, don’t want to play Barca because that could be a really hard game.
“But they’re all really good sides, good footballing sides, with good managers.”
