Solskjaer: Why Barcelona Test Is Tougher Than PSG


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that the Barcelona test in the Champions League is more tougher than that of French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Solskjaer and Manchester United have their work cut out after they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Spanish champions Barcelona at home on Wednesday night.

In his post-match press conference, Solskjaer told reporters that it would be hard for his Manchester United side to overturn the first leg deficit against the Spaniards when they face each other again next week.

According to him, the PSG tie is not as tough as the Barcelona tie despite the fact that they were able to overturn a 2-0 home leg defeat against the French champions in their last 16 tie.

Rashford and Lukaku started the Champions League quarterfinal first leg clash with Barcelona but both players were unable to prevent the Red Devils from suffering a 1-0 defeat at home.
