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
...
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.
...
90+2' Manchester United are passing the ball around in a hopeful manner, waiting for the chance to appear on a silver platter.
...
90' 4 minutes of added time.
...
88' Manchester United are bombing forward in numbers looking for a late equalizer. Will they be able to score a late goal?
...
86' Substitution: Sergi Samper comes on to replace Sergi Roberto.
...
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.
...
83' YELLOW CARD: Fellaini is the first player to go into the referee's books for hacking down Roberto to end Barcelona's counter.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
62' Substitution: The 16th substitution of the game and Anthony Martial comes on to replace Lingard.
...
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.
...
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.
...
54' Barcelona are happy to keep hold of the ball and pass and probe looking to find the ideal opportunity to strike.
...
5 out of those were for Manchester United, while Barcelona changed their entire line-up, excluding the goalkeeper.
...
In total, the two teams have made 15 changes at half-time.
...
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.
...
46' And we are underway in the second-half.
