UEFA confirm dates for United vs Barcelona tie
- United face Barca on the second and third weeks of April.
- The home clash goes first (10 April); the away leg follows (16 April).
- United only have one home goal this UCL season.
Manchester United will vie it out with Barcelona for the right to play the winner of the Liverpool vs Porto FC pair in the Champions League semi-final. The dates have been confirmed by UEFA:
United v Barcelona, Wednesday 10 April (20:00 BST)
Barcelona v United, Tuesday 16 April (20:00 BST)
Initially, United were meant to face Barcelona at Nou Camp for the first leg since the Catalans were the first team out of the pot. However, UEFA had to make arrangements since both Manchester teams can't play the game in the same city on consecutive nights.

Both sides haven't met each other since 2011 when the Blaugrana overpowered Sir Alex Ferguson's team in the Wembley final.
United are yet to correctly score a home goal in this Champions League campaign. After 4 home fixtures, the Reds have only scored once thanks to Marouane Fellaini's handball against Young Boys at the group stage. The goal stood nonetheless.
