Barcelona welcome an in-form Marcus Rashford to the Camp Nou on Thursday for the first leg of their Europa League play-off tie with Manchester United. To counter Rashford’s threat, Xavi has come up with a plan and has charged Ronald Araujo with the responsibility of stopping Manchester United’s danger man. Araujo, who has openly admitted he’s in the best form of his career, could play at right-back to accommodate Vinicius Junior, but the report says he won’t necessarily play at full-back on Thursday night. He could still play in the middle, alongside Andreas Christensen, to help stop Rashford’s threat.
