Venue: Old Trafford

FC Barcelona legends came back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw with the Manchester United legends at Old Trafford.

Among the big names to start for United were Ruud van Nistelrooy, Edwin Van Der Sar and Loius Saha.

While Patrick Kluivert, Edgar Davids, Simao and Eric Abidal were included the Catalan giants starting line up.

These two sides met at the Camp Nou in June this year, with United running out 3-1 winners on the day.

The Red Devils broke the deadlock after 14 minutes when Van Nistelrooy slotted home from the penalty spot.

The home side doubled their lead just before the halftime break courtesy of Daniel Webber's chipped finish.

Barcelona did manage to pull a goal back in the second half as Luis Garcia slotted home from a rebound.

The Catalan giants then leveled matters in the 81st minute courtesy of a strike from Gaizka Mendieta from close range.
