ANOTHER COMEBACK REQUIRED
Manchester United secured a famous turnaround against Paris Saint-Germain in the previous round, losing 2-0 at Old Trafford before earned a 3-1 victory in France to go through on away goals.
That success gives everybody confidence that another fightback is possible against Barcelona, but Marcus Rashford has suggested Barcelona pose a different threat to PSG.
“We’ll always take confidence from that but we also understand that it’s not PSG, it’s a different match, a different atmosphere, it’s a completely different ball game,“ he tells Manchester United media.
“We go there confident but if we’re going to win it’s probably going to be different to how we did it in Paris. For us now we need to forget about the past. We know we’ve done it before, but all the focus has to be on how we’re going to do it again because they’re a strong team.”
