Manchester United have confirmed that the music will be turned off at Old Trafford fifteen minutes before the start of the match with Barcelona, so that the atmosphere begins to build.
Tonight, the Red Devils will play Barcelona in the second leg of the European playoff round.
United will try to build on a promising performance at the Camp Nou, which ended in a 2-2 draw, to defeat the Spanish giants and advance to the next round of the competition.
The official website of the club confirmed that the fans asked to turn off the music so that the fans could immerse themselves in the atmosphere before the start of the game.
“At the request of the fans, the music will be turned off inside the stadium at 19:45 GMT, 15 minutes before the start of the match, so that the atmosphere really starts to build up.”
The fans’ request followed Eric Ten Haga’s request that everyone come and cheer for the team that wants to beat the blue-garnet on the home field.
Ten Hag said in his official game day program: “You can hear it in the stands. That the fans feel a connection with this team, and this feeling is mutual.”
“We are all traveling together, moving forward from game to game, and today we need the fans, as well as the players, to be on top if we want to create an unforgettable evening at the Old. Trafford.”
After the game against Leicester, in which Old Trafford shone, Ten Hag pointed to the fans and asked them to come in droves to help “beat Barcelona together.”
It looks like the Dutchman’s message was well received.
