Manchester United make their long awaited return to European action this week as Erik ten Hag’s side face the challenge of Barcelona over two legs.
The two heavyweights meet at the Europa League Round of 16 playoff stage, with a trip to the Camp Nou, followed by a return fixture at Old Trafford on February 23.
Xavi is plotting a La Liga title challenge in Catalonia, but he will also want to end a poor European record at the club, as Ten Hag faces his first European knockout game as United boss.
Fans from around the world can stream the match live on February 16 and The Sporting News has all the details on how to do so below.

The Camp Nou has witnessed some famous European nights over the years with United enjoying their most iconic Champions League moment at the stadium back in 1999.
Barcelona played host to United and Bayern Munich in the 1999 final, with Sir Alex Ferguson’s side pushing for a trophy treble, and despite heading into the final minutes trailing 1-0, an Ole Gunnar Solskjaer inspired fightback produced an unbelievable win for the Red Devils.

Europa League schedule: Europa League Round of 16 playoffs
The changed formula for the Europa League knockout stages has added a new level of competitiveness to the tournament with Champions League drop outs forced to battle for a Round of 16 spot, rather than being granted an automatic place.
One of the favourites will be knocked out at this stage with United and Barcelona both capable of going all the way to the final in Budapest on May 31.
