Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at FC Barcelona (UCL Quarterfinals)



Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that side was very lucky to escape with a win at home versus West Ham United yesterday. Solskjaer also said that had his side been playing FC Barcelona on Saturday, they would not have been able to pull off a result.

That pretty much tells you everything you need to know about why United were so thoroughly out-played by the Irons at Old Trafford on the weekend- their collective heads were in the Barca tie. United will need another against all odds, no one saw this coming kind of performance, like they achieved at Paris Saint-Germain in the last round on Tuesday night.

If not, their European campaign ends in Catalonia.
