Barcelona have a slender one-goal advantage after a tense first leg of their quarter-final clash with Manchester United.

United’s coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sealed his club’s most famous comeback at Camp Nou as a player in 1999, when he scored a late winner as United rallied from 1-0 down to beat Bayern Munich 2-1 and clinch Europe’s premier prize.

“Of course it’s a fantastic memory for me. It’s the only time I’ve been on the pitch here,” Solskjaer said on Monday.

“I dont mind if we score in the 93rd minute again (on Tuesday). If we get to injury time, we are a fit team.”

Lionel Messi has made a full recovery from the clattering he suffered at the hands of Chris Smalling in the first leg.

“He is fine,” said Barcelona coach Valverde. “He has recovered perfectly from the blow he suffered. He was fine after a couple of days.

“It is true that during the match he was a little stunned but he is in perfect condition and does not have any problems ahead of tomorrow’s game.” 

United overturned a deficit in the previous round of the knockout phase when they reversed a 2-0 deficit something Solskjaer feels will boost his side.

“That memory from PSG will help the players and us as a team, that we know we can turn things around,” Solskjaer said. 

“Barcelona here at the Nou Camp is a difficult prospect but the memory will live with the players. It’s not long ago.”
