When does Barcelona v United kick off? Skip to Main NavigationSkip to contentTuesday 14 February 2023 14:44Manchester United's Europa League play-off tie against Barcelona has been hotly anticipated since the draw was made in the autumn. The prospect of the match-up was on the cards as United finished second in our Europa League group, while Barcelona dropped out of the Champions League as they ended up behind Bayern Munich and Internazionale in their pool. Sure enough, the clubs were paired with one another on 7 November, with the first leg set for the Nou Camp this Thursday (16 February) and the return taking place at Old Trafford seven days later.
