Champions League 25th Anniversary -

Semi-Final - Manchester United 1-0 FC Barcelona


The Champions League returns this week and we are celebrating it here at ITV Sport Archive by going through our vault to find some of the best games featuring British clubs since the competition began 25 years ago.

In 2008, Manchester United took on FC Barcelona at Old Trafford in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final tie, hoping to reach their first final in nine years. With the score goalless after the first leg, United hoped home advantage would give them the edge against a Barcelona side looking to win their second European Cup in

three years. It was another truly unforgettable European night at Old Trafford in front of the ITV cameras.
