United boss Solskjaer hoping for PSG repeat against Barcelona

1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED COACH, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "Oh well, that's the statistics that we… they're not bright, are they (statistics on goals at home)?

That doesn't give us… we cannot defend that, not scoring goals at home - bar one.

And I was actually here then.

But away from home we beat Juventus, we beat PSG, we have to go to Barcelona and win that one.

So, we know that we have possibilities in this tie.

Now is not the time to think about our home performances, 'cause now we have to look forward to Tuesday." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED COACH, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "Yeah, of course the PSG performance away gives us hope and belief that we can do it (win away against Barcelona).

But we know we are playing against probably the favourites in the tournament.

And going to Nou Camp is going to be a challenge.

And it will be a greater achievement winning that one because with the history with Barcelona as well.

There not used to losing at home.

But we can do it.

No doubt we know we can carry a goal threat.

If we get, if it's Anthony (Martial) or Rom (Romelu Lukaku) or Rashi (Marcus Rashford), or whoever is playing up there.

We have to provide a bit more ammunition for them and chances for them." STORY: Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows all about improbable Champions League comebacks and hopes his side can serve up a repeat of last month's victory against Paris St Germain at Barcelona's Nou Camp stadium next week.

United, who were beaten 1-0 by Barca at Old Trafford in the quarter-final first leg on Wednesday (April 10), lost the home match of the previous round to PSG 2-0 before turning the tie around in the French capital.

That result gives the Norwegian manager the belief that his team are capable of progressing to the semi-finals, despite the fact that Barca are unbeaten in their last 30 Champions League home games going back to 2013.

"The PSG performance away gives us hope and belief that we can do it, but we know we are playing against probably the favourites in the tournament," he said following the loss in Manchester.
