Manchester United and Barcelona are set to go head to head in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today, Tuesday, 16th April at the Camp Nou. And a Barcelona legend has some words of advice for United.
Ronaldinho has revealed what Manchester United need to do against Barcelona to stand a chance of making a comeback in the tie and qualify for the semifinal. This won’t be the first time that United overturn a first-leg deficit in the Champions League this season as they did the same against Paris Saint-Germain.
He said that if the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side score first, then they could make Barcelona uncomfortable and stretch the tie till the end.
“The truth is that Barcelona should have finished the game in Manchester – but at just 1-0 Manchester United will still believe that they are in this tie,” Ronaldinho claimed.
“With the way that Barcelona have been playing and the amount of goals they have been scoring, I do expect them to progress. I see them even winning comfortably in Barcelona. It will all be on the first goal.
“If Barcelona score it then it will be a long evening for Manchester United. But if they (Man Utd) can score the first goal then it’s going to make the stadium nervous – and you never know what can happen then.”
