FC Barcelona and Manchester United 바카라 rewrote the history of the European Football Association (UEFA) Europa League (UEL).
Barcelona and Manchester United drew 2-2 in the first leg of the 2022-2023 season UEL Round of 16 playoff held at Camp Nou in Barcelona, Spain on the 17th (Korean time).
The match received a lot of attention even before kick-off. As it was a confrontation between two teams that met in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) final 10 years ago, the eyes of football fans around the world gathered.
The game matched the expectations of the fans. Barcelona took the lead through Marcos Alonso’s goal, but United turned the game around thanks to Rashford’s equalizer and Jules Kunde’s own goal. However, Barcelona Rafinha equalized again, and the two teams could not decide the winner after a fierce battle.
Both team commanders applauded that the match was close to UCL level, not UEL. Barcelona coach Xabi Hernández said, “The opponent is Manchester United. It’s a team you can meet in the UCL final, semi-finals, and quarter-finals. Both teams performed very well.” Everyone was aggressive and it was a fun match like a UCL match.”
A new history of UEL was also born. After the game, Barcelona announced on its official website, “Another record was renewed at Spotify Camp Nou. A whopping 90,255 spectators gathered at the stadium against Manchester United to enjoy football.” This is the highest number of spectators in history, far exceeding the previous UEL highest number of spectators (80,465, Tottenham-Ghent).
Meanwhile, both teams will move to Manchester Old Trafford on the 24th to play the second leg. As the away goal system has been abolished, a draw cannot decide which team advances to the quarterfinals. These are two teams that need to see the end in this game.
