Manchester United and Barcelona played out a disappointing 0-0 draw in a pre-season friendly in Gothenburg on Wednesday.

The Catalan side were mostly on top, spurred on by Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta, but created few real goal-scoring opportunities.

The best chance of the match fell to Manchester United with a penalty just before half-time, but Wayne Rooney saw his effort parried by Victor Valdes and he then was well off the target with his follow-up.

The game ended with a brief penalty shoot-out which Barcelona won 2-0.
