Manchester United are out of the Champions League, after Lionel Messi produced a brilliant performance at the Camp Nou as Barcelona beat them 3-0 on the night.

There had been plenty of talk about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s famous treble-winning goal at the Camp Nou in 1999, but there were to be no such heroics tonight.

Phil Jones came in at right-back, as Solskjaer was forced to shuffle his pack with Luke Shaw suspended but he also stuck with Fred and Scott McTominay in midfield. Right-back was the only area that his opposite number tinkered, bringing in Sergi Roberto for Nelson Semedo.

There were a couple of early openings for the visitors, giving them false hope in an open and entertaining match.

Messi thought he’d have an early chance to put Barcelona 1-0 ahead from the penalty spot, but after a VAR check the referee correctly overturned his decision. The Argentine didn’t have to wait long though, as he scored his first with a trademark curling long-range strike into the bottom corner.

He struck again four minutes later as David de Gea committed a terrible error to let the ball roll under his body. From there, it was cruise control.

Philippe Coutinho added a third in the second half with a thunderbolt, and the hosts then proceeded to toy with Solskjaer’s side, killing them with a thousand passes.
