  • Barcelona defeat fellow European heavyweights Manchester United 2-0 penalties after a 0-0 draw in a pre-season friendly in Gothenburg.

  • Pique wins it for Barcelona (Bar 2 United 0)

  • Young, who failed from the spot at Euro 2012, sees his penalty saved by Pinto (Bar 1 United 0)

  • Xavi dinks his penalty past De Gea (Bar 1 United 0)

  • Nani hits the crossbar (Bar 0 United 0)

  • Here comes the shoot-out...

  • FULL-TIME: We go to penalties after a 0-0 draw following 90 minutes in Gothenburg. Three spot-kicks each.

    90 + 2
  • Just to reiterate, it is only three penalties for each team in the shoot-out before going straight to sudden death.

    90 + 1
  • ADDED TIME: There will be two minutes additional time before the final whistles and, if it stays likes this, penalties.

  • A cross drops into the United box but it is just over the head of Pedro. He was unmarked at the back post, however, was also not particularly interested in the ball.

  • Alba does not look like he is going to have any problems slipping into the Barcelona fashion. He has seamlessly fitted into this match on his debut.

  • Valencia has had a good game tonight. Along with Scholes and Ferdinand, he has been among United's best players.

  • There has been no signs tonight of any changes in style Vilanova might want to make after taking over from Guardiola. Obviously it will take time if he does make alterations.

  • It is all Barcelona in terms of possession as we enter the final five minutes. Fabregas makes a burst into the United box but is crowded out.

  • United look well set for the closing six minutes plus any additional time. They are back in two banks of four just outside the edge of their box.

  • Ferdinand's excellent evening is over. He is replaced by Scott Wootton.

  • This will certainly have been a good workout for United in terms of their fitness. They have had to be alert watching Barcelona runners and have also been made to work on their defensive shape.

  • Pedro has the chance to run at the United defence. But a back-pedalling Carrick superbly tackles. This really does look like it is going to penalties.

  • Lunging challenge from Pique on Nani. Fortunately for the United winger he skips out of the way. If Pique had made contact, Nani would surely have been injured.

  • Nick Powell comes on for Anderson.
