Man United vs Barcelona: How Mourinho reacted to Smalling’s clash with Messi

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrating Ajax Juventus Champions League

Bernardeschi again came close nine minutes before the interval, swivelling and firing wide from Ronaldo's knock down, before the Champions League's all-time top goalscorer plundered his 125th in the competition, converting Joao Cancelo's lofted ball into the area with a thumping finish.

Smalling went unpunished but Messi's nose was bleeding and he had to briefly go off to receive treatment.

De Gea was also equal to Jordi Alba's strike in the second half to limit the damage.

In that first leg against PSG, United managed only one shot on target.

Jose Mourinho says the facial injury suffered by Lionel Messi during a clash with Chris Smalling in the UEFA Champions League quarter final first leg was not down to foul play from the Manchester United defender.

Barcelona-bound De Jong ran the game from the middle of the park and Allegri admitted he was not able to shackle him.

For example, Arsenal, who qualified for the competition nearly every season under former manager Arsene Wenger, have only scored 51 goals in Champions League knockout games.

Ronaldo was returning from a two-week injury layoff.

Elsewhere, an intriguing contest in London between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City ended with the home side securing a 1-0 win thanks to a late goal from Son Heung-Min.

They forgot the script just after half-time, though, when a slack touch from Cancelo was punished by the in-form Neres, who curled a superb effort past Szczesny into the far corner. Juventus almost won it when Douglas Costa hit the post in the 85th.

The Italian's threat waned somewhat in the second-half, although he did more than enough in the opening 45 minutes to justify his selection.

Local broadcaster AT5 showed images of scores of chanting fans being hosed by the water cannon and responding by tossing fireworks and flares at police before mounted officers charged at them followed by riot police.

It was a rematch of the 1996 final won by Juventus in a penalty shootout.
