However, a drop in performance in recent times has seen the two giants fall off from Europe's premier club competition to square off in the Europa League, per Sportsmole.

Aguero, who was a thorn in the flesh of Man United during his days in the Premier League, believes both teams are primed to give off a classic encounter.

Providing his detailed analysis of the tantalizing affair, Aguero said as quoted by Sportskeeda:

"From what they are showing in La Liga, Barcelona managed to establish itself as a team and have a very consistent game. They managed to close their goal, they concede very little, and they have unbalancing players up front."
He continued: "United have managed to get back into consideration and seems to have left behind the irregularity of the recent past.
"Another clash worth seeing, even, but I think that Barca, and I hope it will be like that, will be the one that prevails."

Barca suffer injury blow ahead United clash

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has announced the squad list for their Europa League encounter against Premier League giants Manchester United.

According to Football Espana, neither Ousmane Dembele nor Sergio Busquets made the cut for the first leg after they both picked up injuries in early February.

Otherwise, Xavi Hernandez has the rest of his side available but has called up youngsters Marc Casado (midfielder) and Angel Alarcon (forward) to add extra depth to the side.

How Aguero made Messi 'mad'?

Sports Brief earlier reported that Sergio Aguero has recounted how he got on Lionel Messi's nerves during Argentina's World Cup celebrations.

Aguero, who called time on his career a year before his country's triumph in Qatar, was a conspicuous member of La Albiceleste's entourage despite not featuring on the pitch.

His overzealous celebrations amused everyone bar his bosom friend and eventual tournament best player, Lionel Messi.
