It feels like the nickname 'Red Devils' may be befitting for the Manchester United defender, Chris Smalling who left the Barcelona FC forward and Argentine legend, Lionel Messi flat on the field with a disfigured nose dripping crimson blood all over the grass. Bloody nose for Messi, after Smalling went through him to win the ball in the air. But he's already back on the pitch.#MUNBAR #MUFCB #UCL pic.twitter.com/jglTiDusNz — Joga Bonito (@Jasoninho10) April 10, 2019 In the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Barcelona FC were destined to go against a depleted Manchester United at Old Trafford. Going in as the dominant side of the rivalry, Ernesto Valverde's men never thought that they would be expecting such a tough fight by the English football club. In all of 90 minutes, Messi and team barely kept themselves afloat and only managed to win the game with the help of United defender Luke Shaw, who gifted them a score in the form of an 'own goal'. Having said that, the only thing to bring about a greater stir on social media was the incident in which the Smalling and Messi jumped to contest for the ball and the Englishman forearmed him in the face, drilling him to the ground as he did so. It was evident that the shot to the nose was unintentional and that the English defender was clearly going for the ball. During the post-game interview, Smalling spoke about the toughness and intensity his team brought to the game and how Barcelona has failed to foresee such a competition. “I think it [the challenge] came when we were right on the front foot,' he told BT Sport. 'We had to bring the intensity they're not used to every week and there's a lot to play for in the second leg.” “We pressed them high and made it difficult. It's a shame we couldn't get the goal. I thought we created some good chances. We had a spell in the first half where we went after them and then we looked nervy, but after half time we got at them.” 'The whole team, we nullified them. I think there was only one other save for David de Gea. We knew we had to bring that intensity that they're not used to.” “It was a good battle, my yellow card on Luis Suarez out of all the challenges I thought it was the softest.” However, the fans of Barcelona FC and those of Lionel Messi were livid with Smalling's overaggressive play and called him out for the charge: Bro the last time Messi got a bloody nose this happened, Smalling you f*cked up... pic.twitter.com/SDGtUTrLMm — Mod (@CFCMod_) April 10, 2019 They broke Messi's nose and think they will survive Camp Nou?
