Man Utd will face Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals, and there is undoubtedly mixed feelings among their fans.
The draw was made on Friday and it pits the Red Devils against the reigning La Liga champions who saw off Lyon in the last round.
Meanwhile, United launched a thrilling comeback against Paris Saint-Germain to advance, and they’ll be hoping to take inspiration from that into this one too.
However, they will of course have to find a way to silence Lionel Messi as well as the other world-class stars around the Argentine icon in order to progress to the last four.
The 31-year-old has been in stunning form again this year, scoring 36 goals and providing 21 assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.
With that in mind, Barcelona will likely start the tie as favourites, but ultimately as this competition this year has shown us, anything can happen given the sensational comebacks we’ve seen.
Further, the pressure will be on the Catalan giants after their disappointment last year having been knocked out by Roma at this stage of the competition, and so they will be desperate to advance.
United have been resurgent under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but this will undoubtedly be his biggest challenge yet. Nevertheless, there were some confident fans reacting to the news on Twitter, as seen below, with many remembering that the Norwegian tactician has some rather fond memories of playing at the Nou Camp…
