Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reaction after Barcelona 3 Manchester United 0

Arsenal celebrate Pierre Emerick Aubameyang's goal against Watford

Barcelona and Manchester United are nearing kickoff in the Champions League Quarterfinals at the Camp Nou.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, shook his head as he walked off the field, while the Ajax players and staff celebrated with their fans long after the final whistle following a 2-1 win in Turin that sealed the Dutch side's first semi-final appearance since 1997. Then Messi stepped into the space, beat Young to the lose ball, nutmegged Fred, cut inside and powered home a flawless left-footed shot into the far bottom corner, where De Gea could only collect it from.

"We have to aspire to get to that level of Barcelona, we can get there but we have loads of work to do".

United need to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the quarterfinal and Messi, who has scored 44 goals in all competitions this season, was one of 10 players rested for Barca's 0-0 draw at Huesca in preparation for the Champions League tie.

Hemedti has also met with other Western diplomats, including the USA chargé d'affaires and Dutch ambassador to Sudan. But demonstrators have pledged to remain on the streets until the military hands power to a civilian administration.


"Messi and Cristiano [Ronaldo] have been the best players in the world for the past decade", said Solskjaer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows he faces a major rebuilding job this summer and beyond in order to re-establish Manchester United among the European elite.

Despite having the bonus of an away goal, Barca goalkeeper, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, said he and his teammates have to maintain their focus.

The goals ended Messi's freakish scoring drought in Champions League quarter-finals that had reached 12 matches dating back to 2013.

Babcock's options as replacements for his third-line centre include Marleau and William Nylander , but neither scenario is ideal. It would stink, it would be worthy of criticism, but you move on and bring him back next season without thinking twice about it.


Solskjaer had urged his strikers to be more lethal here but it felt ominous that even before kick-off, Rashford, Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez had hit 42 goals this season, while Messi on his own had 43.

Young was undoubtedly to blame for Lionel Messi's 16th-minute opener as he carelessly gave the ball away and then missed his tackle. Young had a pass deflected by Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic. Fred and Scott McTominay closed in on Coutinho and the ball spilled out to Messi, whose dribbling shot with his right foot should have drawn a routine save.

They were in command after the mercurial Argentine master put them 2-0 up, although they had to ride their luck a bit in the opening exchanges as United threatened a stirring comeback. Barca's less so, especially in recent years where they have had to take a back seat to fierce rivals Real Madrid's trailblazing antics in Europe.
