United can frighten Barca at Camp Nou – Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United have the attacking players to frighten Barcelona at Camp Nou.

United are looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg, and the manager insists the Spanish giants will be wary of facing Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba with a place in the Champions League semi-finals on the line Tuesday.

“You look at the quality of those players and that gives us a threat,” said Solskjaer, who scored a Champions League winner at Camp Nou in 1999.

“We carry a goal threat and of course what we did against PSG as a team must give everyone a huge confidence boost.”

Barcelona are heavy favourites to go through, having lost only once at home all season. But United have already upset the odds with unlikely victories at Juventus and PSG, and Solskjaer believes his team can make it a hat trick.

“We will use the PSG match, we will use the Juventus away,” said Solskjaer.

“We have beaten some good teams away from home this year, and played against some great players.”

Nemanja Matic and Alexis Sanchez travelled with the squad Monday and could feature, but Ander Herrera is likely to miss out as he continues his recovery from injury.
