Manchester United will be hosting Barcelona at Old Trafford in the first leg of UCL Quarter-finals on Wednesday as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a chance to make the biggest statement.
The Norwegian’s tenure so far has been incredible with a top-four Premier League finish which looked to be out of United’s sight regardless of some recent setbacks.
Solskjaer will hope to win the first leg against Barca and take a healthy lead to Camp Nou in the return leg next week.
Barcelona, meanwhile, are favourites in the quarter-finals and come into this match on the back of a 2-0 success against Atletico Madrid in the La Liga.
- Marcus Rashford is fit for Wednesday’s tie after he missed the Wolves game last week with an ankle injury.
- Ander Herrera may possibly also return but Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian remain doubtful.
- Meanwhile, Luke Shaw is suspended for the first leg against Barca having picked up two yellow cards.
