(SportyLeagues)
The Reds were beaten 1-0 in the first leg at
Old Trafford last week and fly to Catalonia
this Monday morning, determined to stage a
comeback to earn qualification to the

competition’s semi-finals.

Solskjaer has named a large group for the trip
that notably includes Matteo Darmian,
Nemanja Matic and Alexis Sanchez, who have
all recently been missing due to injury.
 
Luke Shaw is among the travelling players,
 
despite the fact he is suspended for the
match after picking up a yellow card against

the Spanish league leaders last week.

Our travelling squad to Barcelona:David De
Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant, Diogo Dalot,
Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young, Phil Jones,
Victor Lindelof, Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling,
Luke Shaw, Fred, Nemanja Matic, Scott
McTominay, Andreas Pereira, Paul Pogba,
Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial,
Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Marcus
Rashford.

 

 

COMING UP ON MONDAY

We can confirm that Solskjaer and a member

of the squad will hold a joint press conference

at the Nou Camp from 16:15 BST, before

training on the pitch from 17:00 BST. You can

follow live coverage of both events in our

Official App.

Meanwhile, Barcelona head coach Ernesto

Valverde and a player will hold their pre-

match press conferences from 14:45 BST.

Our opponents will then train in front of the

media from 18:00 BST.

 

ANOTHER COMEBACK IS NEEDED

United secured a famous turnaround against

Paris Saint-Germain in the previous round,

losing 2-0 at Old Trafford before earned a 3-1

victory in France to go through on away

goals. 

 

That success gives everybody confidence

that another fightback can be staged against

Barcelona, but Marcus Rashford has

suggested Barcelona pose a different threat

to PSG.

 

“We’ll always take confidence from that but

we also understand that it’s not PSG, it’s a

different match, a different atmosphere, it’s

a completely different ball game,“ he told us.

“We go there confident but if we’re going to

win it’s probably going to be different to how we did it in Paris. For us now we need to

forget about the past. We know we’ve done it

before, but all the focus has to be on how

we’re going to do it again because they’re. Strong team.”
