Gerard Pique continued his fine form this season with another solid performance against his former team Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The centre-back helped the visitors earn a vital clean sheet and came up with a great late tackle to deny substitute Anthony Martial.

Pique’s performance was a rare bright spot for Barcelona who put in a pretty poor performance against Manchester United despite winning 1-0.

The result means Ernesto Valverde side have the advantage ahead of the second leg, and they will be expected to go through and face either Liverpool or Porto in the semi-finals.
