Barcelona vs Man Utd: Raphinha rescues Barca as Kounde scores own goal



The visitors edged a tense first 45 minutes at the Nou Camp, but it was the hosts that took the lead after the second half through former Chelsea star Marcos Alonso after 50 minutes..

But Manchester United were quickly back level after Marcus Rashford scored his fourth goal in four games in the 52nd minute to make a quick riposte.

And the Red Devils then took the lead just seven minutes later after Jules Kounde turned the ball into his own net on 59 minutes to turn the game around on the night.

Barca then got themselves back on level terms after Raphinha sent a curling effort into the bottom corner of David de Gea’s goal, with the Spanish goalkeeper rooted to the spot as the cross-shot came in.

The hosts struck the post in the 86th minute after Casemiro came close to turning it into his own net, before Ansu Fati drew a good stop from De Gea seconds later to keep his side in the game.
