Manchester United may have lost the first leg to Barcelona, but being only a goal down means they will head to the Camp Nou with optimism considering their performances away from Old Trafford this season.

Not only that, they also have history in Europe of getting the job done away from Manchester, England.

GIVEMEBET looks at the epic European away days where United have achieved score lines that would see them progress to the semi-final this time around.

Paris St Germain 2018/19 Champions League Quarter-Final

Backs against the wall after defeat at home in the first leg, many believed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team stood no chance of progressing.

Despite PSG’s recent disappointments in Champions League knockout matches, even the ardent United fan travelled to Paris hoping for a miracle. Within two minutes, though, Romelu Lukaku gave the visitors the lead and hope.

The teams traded goals before half-time and United found themselves knowing one more would give them the lead on away goals.

Riding their luck in the second half, they were awarded a dramatic late penalty aided by VAR.

After a long delay, Marcus Rashford stepped up and cooly slotted home, giving United one of their greatest European away days. 3-1 United victory is 44/1.

Juventus 2018/19 Group Stages

The Red Devils had already shown promise away from home in the competition before the epic result in Paris.

Losing to Juventus the previous match week, they faced a daunting trip to Turin against former legend Cristiano Ronaldo.

In what many hailed as Jose Mourinho’s best away victory, United had to do it the hard way and come from behind late on.

Ronaldo put the hosts ahead, but United got themselves level through Juan Mata’s 86th minute goal, only for Juventus to hand them victory with a scrappy own goal, sending the visiting fans into rapture. 19/1 is the odds of the visitors winning 2-1.

Ajax 2016/17 Europa League Final

The only way Old Trafford would see Champions League football the following season was victory in the Europa League.

Jose Mourinho’s side finished a disappointing sixth in the league and concentrated their efforts on lifting the trophy in Stockholm. United squeaked through the knock-out stages and faced an Ajax side who had beaten Lyon and Schalke in the previous rounds.

Pogba got United off to a perfect start as they led after 20 minutes. The final was virtually settled not long after half-time as Henrikh Mkhitaryan made it 2-0.

A turbulent season ended in victory as United claimed Europe’s second tier prize for the first time ever. United winning by a 2-0 repeat score is 37/1.

Juventus 1998/99 Champions League Semi-Final

A last-minute goal at Old Trafford in the first leg sent United to Turin with belief they could make their first Champions League final.

Their confidence was soon broken, and within 10 minutes found themselves two down. A spirited comeback, a feature of United under Alex Ferguson, was led by captain Roy Keane, who halved the deficit before Dwight Yorke levelled.

Behind on away goals, Juve pushed for a winner, but were caught on the counter and Andy Cole tapped in to send United to Barcelona. A United 3-2 victory is 39/1.

Benfica 1967/68 European Cup Final

The match may have been at Wembley, but technically still an away day.

Fresh-off beating Real Madrid in the semi-finals in a 3-3 second leg thriller, they faced Eusebio and Benfica in their first ever European Cup final appearance, 10 years after the Munich Air Disaster.

The match sparked into life in the second half with Bobby Charlton opening the scoring only for Benfica to equalize with 10 minutes to go.

The tie went to extra time and United added three goals to secure an emotional European Cup victory. United to win 4-1 is 77/1.
