Barcelona can be beat, but luck will not be enough for Manchester United

Barcelona can be beat, but luck will not be enough when Manchester United has to see the Catalan side at the Nou Camp in the Champions League

  • Manchester United still has to perform a miracle to make the semi-final
  • Barcelona defeated United 1-0 in the first leg and has that crucial out of goal
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants his players to get inspiration from their PSG victory
  • But after a 2-1 win over West Ham, United needs more than just luck in Nou Camp

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently said that he has given a lot of thought to some of the team discussions that were given by Sir Alex Ferguson in the past.

As a reference point for management in the Champions League, it is not a bad place to start.

When he spoke of large United glories of which he was a part, Solskjaer said to ESPN: "I ask myself:" What did we do to get there? What kind of conversations has he had with his team? & # 39; There was a pattern in what he said. & # 39;

Few of Ferguson's skills surpass his motivation gifts and few can ever hope to pursue his life in that department.

When the Ferguson team flew to Barcelona for what would be their biggest win 20 years ago next month, it was a trip through Concorde and even Roy Keane was impressed.

& # 39; He was always looking for a head start, & # 39; said Keane.

What Ferguson had then was a team of great players. Only if we look back at that victory now that we really realize that.

Solskjaer is not blessed with this, and that is what makes Tuesday the attempt to reach a first semifinal in the Champions League in eight years, so discouraging.

The new United-manager said after an unconvincing 2-1 victory against West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday that his side should not be inspired by what happened twenty years ago, but instead of what happened when winning at PSG in the previous round in March. .

But what he needs more than that is a much better performance. A lot was said about post-Paris about the quality of United & # 39; s play in their 3-1 win.

The more prosaic truth is that the victory in no way reflected the nature of the game, and if United doesn't improve on Tuesday, they go out.

On Tuesday, United stands for a talented Barcelona team, but the Spanish league leaders are not unbreakable.

The Solskjaer team could and should have scored against them by losing 1-0 to Old Trafford.

At the Nou Camp, United has to take what chances are heading their way and they just have to defend better than at any time this season.

Solskjaer will bring a hammer to this team in the summer when he tries to clear the mistakes of those who come for him.

From that point of view, Tuesday represents another free hit. Fortune will not experience United again.

Another miracle only comes if it has the best execution of the time that Solskjaer is in charge of in his heart.
