Clash of legends: Manchester United beat Barcelona 3 – 1 at Nou Camp


Manchester United legends produced an impressive display to beat their Barcelona counterparts 3-1 at the Nou Camp on Friday night.

The United heavyweights have now established a handy lead ahead of the return leg at Old Trafford in September, thanks to goals from Jesper Blomqvist (14), Karel Poborsky (57) and Dwight Yorke (77).

At the other end, a star-studded Barcelona attack featuring Ronaldinho and Rivaldo produced some scintillating football, but the hosts were unable to find the net until Frederic Dehu managed to pull a goal back in the final minute.

Ronaldinho, Rivaldo and Patrick Kluivert created plenty of chances for Barca but the hosts could not quite get a breakthrough.

Barca, however, pulled one back when Dehu produced a calm finish.

The second leg, which will raise money for the Manchester United Foundation’s work, will be on September 2.
