Shane’s Free Pick 

Missing Gavi and Pedri are big losses for Barcelona, and it’s going to really hurt them in this game. Manchester United scored two goals in the last game and they are going to find the success scoring again in this game. Look for Manchester United to score a couple of goals and they are going to get the job done. Back Manchester United on the money line.
