Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United can take inspiration from PSG comeback

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United should be emboldened by their dramatic comeback against Paris St Germain as they look to overturn another deficit in 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.

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

The United manager said: “Of course that memory from PSG will help the players, as a team we know we can turn things round.

“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.”
