Strikers hold key for Man United at Barcelona in Champions League - Solskjaer

  • How Manchester United plan to keep hold of Paul Pogba this summer

Sport are reporting that both his agents will sit down on a table with Barca officials following the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester United and take a final call on whether or not the winger is moving. "But we have to use [crosses] better than last week". Barcelona is a hard prospect.

"The result from the first leg is not definite", Valverde said.

Solskjaer confirmed before that match: "He is training with us, he's trained twice".

Now into their thirties, Suarez and Messi still pose Barca's biggest threats, combining for 66 goals this season.

United also had too little of the possession to seriously damage Barcelona and Solskjaer acknowledged they can not afford that to happen again.

"We know we can still be in this tie if we keep a clean sheet". You have to do that against Barcelona.

In four consecutive summers between 2014 and 2017, he helped Chile reach the last 16 of the World Cup, win two Copa America titles in two years and then make the final of the Confederations Cup. I am focused on a better performance.

'We will be true to our style but we are also aware of what they have in attack and the game can't become you attack us, we attack you.

Solskjaer said he will not be anxious if United do not score early and is aware they may have to be patient if they are to proceed to the semi-finals for the first since 2011.

"The last time I was on this pitch was the only time".

"We are physically taller than them, we are bigger than them".


Although they warmed up for the game with a goalless draw away to Huesca, Ernesto Valverde rang in the changes for that game.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi has scored 22 goals in 31 Champions League games against English opponents, more than any other player in the competition.

Solskjaer's goal against Bayern Munich came in the third minute of injury time, two minutes after Teddy Sheringham had equalised, and sealed a historic treble for Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

"Belief is massive in football". You can't live from what has happened before.

'We don't want them to score but our game plan as always will be to try to score, anything else would be absurd'. "We're playing a fantastic team and we have to be realistic enough to know that". "Whoever starts tomorrow has to provide something a little bit special".

His team failed to register a shot on target in the first game and are on a run of just four goals from open play in six games since a dramatic 3-1 win at Paris Saint-Germain saw them recover from a 2-0 first leg defeat in the previous round.

"Physically we're ready", he said.

Former Barça forward Alexis Sanchez is back in the squad having missed the first leg injured.

"He's not had a fantastic season so far", said Solskjaer of Sanchez.

"If you put your life, determination and everything you have, you get what you deserve", he said.
