Champions League Quarter-Final

Man Utd-Barcelona

Man Utd-Barcelona

United return to Premier League action on Sunday against Everton as they look to finish in the top four and qualify for next season's Champions League.

Messi's magical run came after Red Devils right back Ashley Young failed to clear the ball.

Almost 20 years ago at the Camp Nou, Solskjaer was part of the United team that pulled off one of the most spectacular comebacks in Champions League history.

Manchester United goalkeeping coach Emilio Alvarez says David De Gea has done "super special preparation" before facing Barcelona's Lionel Messi in Tuesday's Champions League encounter at Camp Nou.

MANCHESTER United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted the club must take their lead from Lionel Messi's Barcelona after a humbling defeat last night.

The goals were Messi's first in the Champions League quarter-finals since April 2013 as Barca moved into a last-four meeting with either Liverpool or Porto. Instead, De Gea let it squirm under his body for 2-0.

He added Messi's majestic display underlined why is he regarded as the best player in the world alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.

Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba are the superstars on show in this one, but there's a lot more talent on both sides and the urgency to win from the two teams will make this a fantastic European night. We want to get back toUnited's true traditions and challenge the likes of Barcelona'.

"You never know what can happen in football, they [United] have a very good team and they could have caused us problems, so we made sure we were focussed and played with intensity so we would make it through". We were cold and nervous for the first five minutes.

"Messi always gets us out of trouble and we're not going to apologise for having him", Valverde told a news conference.

"You have to lift them (the players). But the memory of what we did in Paris will live with the players because it's not long ago".

2 - Ajax have been eliminated on two of the three previous occasions they have drawn the first leg of a Champions League knockout tie at home, most recently in the 2005-06 last 16 against Inter Milan.
