06:59 (IST)27 JUL 2017

Wow! After a frantic first half that was really dull and lifeless, and Barcelona have managed to nick a win tonight and more importantly all their players got a run out, it is all that matters in a pre-season friendly.

This is Shaurya Vineet signing off. It was a pleasure to have you with us. If you have any comments, feedback or queries, feel free to get in touch with me on Twitter @ShauryaVineet.

We will be back with Barcelona and United's next games in the upcoming days. Until then, goodbye and take care.

FULL-TIME: Barcelona 1-0 Manchester United

06:56 (IST)27 JUL 2017

90+4' And it did appear with the ball falling to the feet of Martial, who has all time in the world to beat Cillessen with a curled finish but his shot is blocked before Rashford blasts it over.

06:55 (IST)27 JUL 2017

90+2' Manchester United are passing the ball around in a hopeful manner, waiting for the chance to appear on a silver platter.

06:51 (IST)27 JUL 2017

90' 4 minutes of added time.

06:49 (IST)27 JUL 2017

88' Manchester United are bombing forward in numbers looking for a late equalizer. Will they be able to score a late goal?

06:47 (IST)27 JUL 2017

86' Substitution: Sergi Samper comes on to replace Sergi Roberto.

06:46 (IST)27 JUL 2017

84' Manchester United survive. Fellaini is having a poor game. The Belgian hits an undercooked pass towards Romero with Alcacer lurking and the shot-stopper had to rush to clear the ball with the ball taking a wicked deflection of the Spanish forward.

06:44 (IST)27 JUL 2017

83' YELLOW CARD: Fellaini is the first player to go into the referee's books for hacking down Roberto to end Barcelona's counter.

06:41 (IST)27 JUL 2017

80' Fellaini goes down under a challenge from Vidal in Busquets-esque style and the Barcelona players are not happy. The Belgian receives some treatment and we are underway.

06:40 (IST)27 JUL 2017

78' The game has lost much of its urgency and spark since half-time or rather after MSN left the pitch. Especially, Neymar and Messi, who had a telling impact in the first half.

06:38 (IST)27 JUL 2017

76' Barcelona have a free-kick down the right and Iniesta stands over it. The Barcelona captain swings it towards the far corner but it is cleared by the Manchester United defence.

06:37 (IST)27 JUL 2017

73' It is now Pogba's turn to try his luck from distance but his shot does not have the required venom and Cillessen saves.

06:33 (IST)27 JUL 2017

72' First, it is Rashford's turn to take a shot but it is blocked by a sliding tackle from a Barcelona defender only to fall into the path of Pereira who - once again - lets it fly from range but it is saved easily.

06:31 (IST)27 JUL 2017

70' Barcelona look toothless in attack and shaky in defence and Pereira tries to make the most of it as he aims to find the back of the net from a long way out.

06:30 (IST)27 JUL 2017

68' Lukaku and Rashford have been trying hard to make things happen for Mourinho's side, the duo have only partially succeeded in their attempts so far.

06:28 (IST)27 JUL 2017

65' Romero with a sharp save to deny Alcacer from close range after the Spaniard had successfully latched on to an over the top through ball.

06:27 (IST)27 JUL 2017

62' Substitution: The 16th substitution of the game and Anthony Martial comes on to replace Lingard.

06:26 (IST)27 JUL 2017

61' Mourinho had talked about hoping to not lose any more players in the game to injuries but he will not be happy as Lingard is struggling and is about to be taken off.

06:25 (IST)27 JUL 2017

59' Turan gets away from his marker and tries to release Digne down the left but his pass is cut out and Manchester United look to break.

06:21 (IST)27 JUL 2017

54' Barcelona are happy to keep hold of the ball and pass and probe looking to find the ideal opportunity to strike.

06:20 (IST)27 JUL 2017

5 out of those were for Manchester United, while Barcelona changed their entire line-up, excluding the goalkeeper.

06:20 (IST)27 JUL 2017

In total, the two teams have made 15 changes at half-time.

06:11 (IST)27 JUL 2017

47' Turan has been hacked down by Bailly and Barcelona win a free-kick,  The former Atletico Madrid man must surely be angry how his career has shaped up since signing for Barcelona over two years ago.

06:08 (IST)27 JUL 2017

46' And we are underway in the second-half. 

06:07 (IST)27 JUL 2017

Barcelona and Manchester United have made many changes during the half-time. Let us see how does this impact the game.

06:05 (IST)27 JUL 2017

The players are making their way out for the restart and it is Gerard Pique - who is seen leading the players out on the pitch.

05:59 (IST)27 JUL 2017

We are preparing for the restart. What are your predictions, shoot is my way on Twitter @ShauryaVineet

05:50 (IST)27 JUL 2017

Neymar's goal remains the difference at half-time. Will Manchester United mount a comeback in the second half, we will have to wait and watch. Stay tuned for the live coverage of the second half.

05:48 (IST)27 JUL 2017

45' HALF-TIME: Barcelona 1-0 Manchester United

05:47 (IST)27 JUL 2017

43' United try to hit Valverde's side on the counter with Pogba leading the charge. The Frenchman curls it into the path of Lukaku who fails to get a touch and it finally reaches Lingard, whose poor touch helps Barcelona win a throw-in.

05:45 (IST)27 JUL 2017

42' Messi goes on yet another run and Blind has to hang on to his shirt to stop him. The Argentine swings the resulting free-kick and Suarez attempts to connect with an acrobatic volley and he manages to do so forcing De Gea into making a brilliant point-blank save.

05:43 (IST)27 JUL 2017

40' Messi, once again, has the ball and he bombs forward but is brought down by Pogba and the referee awards Barcelona a free-kick. The free-kick is about 25 yards and the diminutive Argentine sizes it up before striking it with his left-foot and it curls JUST over the far corner of De Gea.

05:41 (IST)27 JUL 2017

Umtiti is giving Lukaku no space to wreak havoc but will the Belgian brute able to shrug off the Frenchman and make his mark in this game?

05:40 (IST)27 JUL 2017

37' Messi has dropped very deep in midfield with Alena also playing ahead of him. Is this his future now? Is this Barcelona's future?

05:39 (IST)27 JUL 2017

Manchester United are struggling to get hold of the ball as Barcelona have started to dominate proceedings. It is Neymar and Messi who are at the center of everything for the Catalan giants. 

05:37 (IST)27 JUL 2017

Messi drives forward with the ball and threads one through to Neymar down the left but Valencia intercepts but the job is only partly done as the Brazilian robs the full-back before pulling off the silkiest of ROULETTEs to get rid of Daley Blind before slotting it past De Gea. PURE GENIUS!

05:34 (IST)27 JUL 2017

31' GOOAAAAALLLLLL!!! WHAT A BRILLIANT GOAL BY NEYMAR! SENSATIONAL STUFF!

05:32 (IST)27 JUL 2017

28' Messi, Suarez and Neymar link-up to create problems for the Manchester United defence but the resulting shot is tame and it is saved easily.

05:31 (IST)27 JUL 2017

27' Pogba slides into a challenge hoping to dispossess Neymar but the Brazilian is too swift for the Frenchman as he bombs forward and tries to find the run of Suarez but it is intercepted. Barcelona win the ball back and Messi has the ball inside the box but he cannot drag his effort on target. He is not having the best of days in front of goal.

05:28 (IST)27 JUL 2017

25' Pogba has the ball and should let it fly but he opts to pass it to Rashford down the right, the forward under pressure from Barcelona's defence passes the ball back to Pogba, who tries to curl it into the top corner but it sails wide.

05:26 (IST)27 JUL 2017

23' Messi blasts the resulting free-kick into the wall and Manchester United look to build up from the back.

05:25 (IST)27 JUL 2017

22' Nothing significant happens from the corner before Barcelona counter but Messi is brought down and they win a free-kick some 40 yards from goal.

05:25 (IST)27 JUL 2017

20' Pogba shrugs off Alena and goes on a lung-bursting run down the right to win his side a corner.

05:22 (IST)27 JUL 2017

19' Now Rashford skins Semedo to cut in a play a quick one-two with Lukaku but the ball hits the young forward's arms and Barcelona win a free-kick.

05:21 (IST)27 JUL 2017

18' From the resulting corner, Rashford leaves Umtiti for the dead before forcing an excellent save from Cillessen.

05:20 (IST)27 JUL 2017

17' Lingard and Lukaku exchange a few quick passes before the midfielder tries to curl one into the top corner but it is diverted behind by the Barcelona shot-stopper.

05:19 (IST)27 JUL 2017

15' "EXTRAORDINARY FROM PAUL POGBA" yells the commentator on air as the Frenchman hammers one towards goal with his right on the turn from all of 25 yards, drawing a good save from Cillessen.

05:16 (IST)27 JUL 2017

13' MESSI guides it just past. The Argentine magician drives into a gentle burst before taking it to his preferred foot and trying to beat De Gea at his near post but it is wide.

05:15 (IST)27 JUL 2017

11' Barcelona are the side currently asserting themselves on the game. Mourinho's men are happy to sit back and absorb.
