Solskjaer draws upon spirit of '99 for another Camp Nou miracle

Solskjaer draws upon spirit of '99 for another Camp Nou miracle

He's now in charge of the senior team at Old Trafford and hopes to achieve another Camp Nou miracle when Manchester United take on Barcelona on Tuesday. In the 93rd minute, if we get a set-piece, we are taller and bigger than them.

Manchester United revisit Camp Nou tomorrow for their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Barcelona 1-0 down and needing a turnaround akin to the famous final of 1999, in which their now manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored the injury-time victor in a remarkable 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich that clinched a historic treble.

United had their chances.

Valverde urged his players to seize the opportunity. The stunning round-of-16 win in Paris was made possible by an early goal, and United should have had one here.

De Gea made a terrible error to continue a patchy run of form.

In their first-leg defeat, Manchester United failed to register a single shot on target for the first time in a Champions League game since March 2005 (0-1 against AC Milan).

"I think I'll be so focused, so concentrated", Solskjaer told the BBC.

Nemanja Matic is unlikely to feature and he wasn't included in the matchday squad for the win over the Hammers. In chronological order: Celtic, Ajax, PSV, Manchester United, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich.

GK David De Gea, 4 - The Spaniard made an terrible mistake to let Messi's shot slide under his body and concede the goal that effectively ended the tie.

De Gea redeemed himself to some extent when he kept out Sergi Roberto's point-blank effort before half-time.

Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling will start as the centre-backs.

Luke Shaw has traveled with the squad but his suspension will probably force Solskjaer to play Ashley Young in the left back position. "Maybe they feel they have to try to get the goal, maybe its coincidence, maybe it's because we got the first goal". Who did he pick in Tuesday's games?

According to a report by Spanish publication Sport, Philippe Coutinho has no intention to leave Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

MF Fred, 6 - Preferred to Matic in midfield. Didn't see enough of the ball after half-time.

Anthony Martial is someone Ole might look to utilise later on as the game progresses. The visitors possessed off the opening kickoff and worked a sharp combination down the left-hand side, with Rashford being played in behind but only able to lift his chance off the crossbar after 32 seconds.

Despite what followed, Manchester United actually started brightly and almost scored in the opening minute through Marcus Rashford.
