United, based on the result, are on the brink of exiting the most glamorous club competition in the world.

Speaking ahead of the second leg in Paris on 6 March, Solskjaer said: “There is a determination and desire there to put this right, and when we get to Paris we’ll give it a go.

“It’s a mountain to climb but it’s not impossible. If we get to half-time with a 1-0 lead, that’s what we’ve got to look for.”
