All the goals from tonight's Barca-Man United clash

The Catalan side ultimately secured a place in the semi-finals.

BARCELONA EARNED a place in the Champions League semi-finals this evening, as two goals from Lionel Messi and one from Philippe Coutinho has them leading 4-0 against Man United on aggregate in tonight’s second leg at the Camp Nou.

The opener was a typical piece of Messi brilliance, as the Argentina international skipped past the challenges of Ashley Young and Fred, before curling an unstoppable shot into the corner of the net.

The second goal was considerably less spectacular. Again, Messi was afforded too much space on the edge of the area, though David de Gea should have done better, allowing the Barca star’s shot to slip under his body and into the net.
