Solskjaer Looking To PSG Miracle For Inspiration Ahead Of Barcelona Clash


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that his players can draw from the wealth of experience of overcoming a difficult situation against French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) when they face Spanish champions Barcelona in their Champions League tie.

Spanish giants Barcelona host Manchester United in the second leg of their Champions League quarterfinal tie with the Catalans holding a first-leg advantage.

Barcelona have a 1-0 lead from the first leg after they beat Manchester United at Old Trafford via an own goal from Luke Shaw in the 12th minute.

In his pre-match press conference ahead of the Barcelona game, Solskjaer implored his players to produce a big away performance in the competition again just like what happened against PSG.

Manchester United had lost 2-0 to French capital club PSG in the first leg of their last 16 tie in the Champions League before the Red Devils were able to turn the tie on its head via the away goals rule.

The Red Devils beat PSG 3-1 at the Parc Des Princes to secure a final eight berth in the competition.

They have to produce a similar result if they want to progress beyond the quarterfinals and into the last four where a two-legged meeting with either Liverpool or FC Porto awaits.
