4 Unique Notes After MU Eliminated Barcelona in the Europa League: The Red Devils Forgot How to Lose

Manchester United (MU) managed to overthrow Barcelona in the second leg of the 2022/2023 Europa League knockout play-off with a score of 2-1 at Old Trafford Stadium, Friday (24/2/2023) early morning WIB. This result brought the Red Devils to the last 16 of the 2022/2023 Europa League. MU should thank Antony who was the winner after the goal he scored. The victory that MU won was not easy after recording a comeback to beat Barcelona.

Because the representatives of Spain succeeded in winning first through Robert Lewandowski in the first round. However, Erik ten Hag’s troops were able to catch up and even turned ahead in the second 45 minutes through goals from Fred and Antony. This result made MU qualify with an aggregate victory of 4-3 over Barcelona.

A number of interesting notes were presented from the final result of the MU versus Barcelona match earlier this morning. Especially the results that emphasize MU show superiority this season. Let’s see the review:

Master Cage

MU’s success in defeating Barcelona this morning has made the Red Devils extend their positive record this season, especially when playing at home, Old Trafford Stadium. They are a very difficult team to beat. After losing two of their first four home games in all competitions this season, United have since gone unbeaten in 18 games at Old Trafford, winning 16 of them.

Barcelona’s record tarnished

MU have now become the first team since Granada in April 2021 to beat Barcelona after trailing at half-time. Barca were unbeaten in 37 matches when they took the lead at half-time.

The depth of the MU squad

Manchester United have 19 goals scored by substitutes in all competitions this season. This record is the most of the five big European league teams in the 2022/2023 season. This situation makes MU have very good squad depth. Erik ten Hag has players who can be decisive off the bench.

Lewandowski’s record

Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski managed to score one goal against MU early this morning. This means he has scored 25 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for Barcelona this season. It didn’t stop there though, this being the 12th season in a row in which he scored more than 25 goals at club level. Lewandowski really deserves to be called the ultimate goalscorer.
