Solskjaer: Manchester United are ‘bigger and taller’ than Barcelona

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reckons his side can use their superior height to their advantage during the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Barcelona.

Solskjaer’s side have it all to do tonight in the Nou Camp, with United trailing 1-0 from the first-leg at Old Trafford.

Despite failing to muster a single shot on target during the first meeting between the sides six days ago, Solskjaer is hopeful that if his team can keep a clean sheet, they will be able to score themselves and make it through to the semi-finals.

“We know we can still be in this tie if we keep a clean sheet. In the 93rd minute, if we get a set-piece, we are taller and bigger than them,” Solskjaer told his pre-match press confernce.

“We need to defend well and we need to score. I don’t mind if it is in the 93rd minute.”

Solskjaer also revealed that his side will believe they can overcome Barcelona, after their historic comeback from 2-0 down in the first-leg against PSG in the last round.

“It will have helped us as a team,” the Norwegian added.

“We know we can turn things around.

“Barca here at the Nou Camp is a difficult prospect but that night will live with the players. It was not that long ago and we are one goal better off [than we were then].”
