Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that the Red Devils can spring a surprise on Barcelona during the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final at the Camp Nou. The Red Devils suffered a slender 1-0 during the first leg at Old Trafford last week, but they produced an impressive performance which kept the Blaugrana attack at bay.
United’s most recent away triumph came at Parc des Princes where they secured a shock 3-1 triumph to oust Paris Saint-Germain from the Champions League. However, they were handed some lucky breaks due to some frantic defending from the hosts and it remains to be seen whether they can trigger a similar urgency from the Catalans to induce mistakes.
Nonetheless, their task remains much more difficult than the one in Paris, considering Blaugrana have remained unbeaten for the past 30 European games at the Camp Nou. Moreover, they have been handed an extended week rest with the majority of the starting XI rested for the recent game against Huesca and that should offer them with the added edge in terms of the fitness. United go into the clash following a 2-1 win over West Ham United at Old Trafford. They were far from impressive, but got the result after being handed a penalty in either half.
