Arsenal celebrate Pierre Emerick Aubameyang's goal against Watford

Manchester United are teetering on the brink of Champions League elimination with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side now trailing on aggregate by quite a margin.

Messi added another score four minutes later to give Barcelona a 2-0 lead in the first half.

Oh dear. Poor old De Gea just can't seem to get his act together on Spanish soil. It was also the first time they had lost 4 away games on the trot after doing so in October of 1999, where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer featured as a player.

Solskjaer will now turn his attention to the battle for a top-four spot in the Premier League but the Norwegian admitted United face a "massive" next few years.

"We want to get there and we have to get there by hard work and attitude every single day, and of course some clever business we have to do and just keep on going". It will require perhaps even more magic than their second leg against PSG, considering the sheer dominance Barcelona have shown at home this season.

Barca will enter the semi-finals as one of the favourites to win the Champions League for what would be their sixth title.

Selling and replacing the Englishman must be a priority this summer for United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer, who outlined his transfer plans in his post-match press conference. Young had a pass deflected by Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic.

Messi then breezed about the pitch - nutmegging players in pink nearly at will and then spraying a brilliant ball to the onrushing Jordi Alba whose cut-back teed up Coutinho who delivered an emphatic finish. Fred and Scott McTominay closed in on Coutinho and the ball spilled out to Messi, whose dribbling shot with his right foot should have drawn a routine save.

"At 2-0 straight after it was game over".

Pogba lashed out at the increasingly influential Arthur and Barca could have had a third before half-time, De Gea scrambling across to save on the line when Sergi Roberto should have finished.

Messi almost completed his hat-trick with a bicycle kick as Barcelona completely dominated the second half, with their play leaving United chasing shadows. Barca's less so, especially in recent years where they have had to take a back seat to fierce rivals Real Madrid's trailblazing antics in Europe.
