Man United vs Barcelona: What Ole Gunnar Said After Losing At Old Trafford

Manchester United Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confidence of overturning 1 goal deficit after losing to Barcelona at the Old Trafford on Wednesday.

According to him, overturning Barcelona’s first leg victory at Camp Nou will surpass the Paris miracle.

Recall that United famously overturned a two-goal deficit at PSG in the last-16 and will need another miracle to progress to the next round.

“The PSG performance away gives us hope and believe we can do it,” United manager Solskjaer told his post-match press conference. “But we know we are playing against probably the favourites in the tournament.

“Going to the Nou Camp is going to be a challenge. It would be a greater achievement. With the history of Barcelona, they are not used to losing at home, but we can do it, no doubt about it.

“Away from home we’ve beaten Juventus and PSG and now we need to go to Barcelona. We know we have possibilities in this tie.”

United’s trip to Nou Camp evokes memories of the 1999 Champions League final in which Solskjaer scored the winning goal deep into stoppage-time.
