“Man United are the favourites against Barcelona”

Parker considers Man United to be the favourites to go through but added that he doesn’t see it as a massive failure if the club are going to lose against Barcelona. 

“I really do consider Man United to be the favourites against Barcelona because they are not in the best place compared to where they were a few years ago.”

“But I wouldn’t consider it to be a massive failure if they are being knocked out by Barcelona. They are a huge club with an amazing history.”

Parker says that the Man United fans would be able to accept a loss if Erik ten Hag´s team is going into the game with the right approach and a willingness to play attacking football. 

“But people want to watch entertaining football, so if Man United are not entertaining the crowd at Old Trafford, they would be disappointed. But if Man United are playing at a high tempo, trying to score goals but lose at the end, the fans will accept it.”
