Solskjaer says Reds have what it takes for Barca comeback

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United's comeback against Paris Saint-Germain can help them do the same against Barcelona.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United’s comeback against Paris Saint-Germain can help them do the same against Barcelona.

United were brushed aside 2-0 by PSG in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 encounter but bounced back in spectacular fashion with a 3-1 victory at the Parc des Princes last month.

They face a similarly uphill task in the return leg of their quarter-final after Barcelona triumphed 1-0 at Old Trafford last week and are hot favourites to go through to the semi-finals.

However, while recognising the abilities of a side who have won four European Cups since 2006 and boast an enviable amount of attacking talent, Solskjaer was in a bullish mood ahead of the Nou Camp return following his side’s heroics in the last round.

‘Of course that memory from PSG will help the players, as a team we know we can turn things round,’ he said.

‘Barca at the Nou Camp is a different prospect but the memory from that night will live with the players.

‘It’s not that long ago and we’re one goal better off.’
