A crucial week in Manchester United’s season culminates at Old Trafford on Tuesday night when Barcelona make the trip for the Champions League Semi-Final 2nd Leg.

Defeat at the weekend meant the title race is very much on, with United just edging ahead at the moment on goal difference – but it’s Europe’s premier competition which takes centre stage.

Last time out a sub-standard attacking performance was rescued by a determined defensive performance which restricted Barca to few chances – but Sir Alex Ferguson is expecting a more open game this time around.

The main worries surround Wayne Rooney’s hip injury and Nemanja Vidic’s recovery after having some of his teeth relieved from his mouth but both are expected to play according to the boss.
