Manchester United face a mammoth task to turn around a 1-0 deficit against Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final second-leg match at Camp Nou.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have already defied the odds once previously in the competition with a 3-1 victory away to Paris Saint-Germain pushing them through to this stage on the away goals rule after they had previously lost the home encounter 2-0.

In Barca, though, they face a side with an enormous European pedigree, well rested and full of confidence after an 18-match undefeated sequence.

Rafinha and Thomas Vermaelen are both absent, while Jean-Clair Todibo, who made his first start at the weekend, is ineligible.

Lionel Messi is “in perfect shape” after suffering a facial blow in the first leg.
