Manchester United host Barcelona on Wednesday in the first-leg of Champions League quarter-finals, and the clash between two of the greatest clubs in history is definitely one fans across the world relish.

The Red Devils surpassed the expectations of many during the round-of-16, handing Paris Saint-Germain a 3-1 defeat in the second-leg in France having lost the first-leg at Old Trafford 2-0.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope his players can go into the double-leg fixture against Barcelona with the same motivation they played with at the Parc des Princes a few weeks ago, and assistant manager Mike Phelan has sent out a message to the squad through a tweet.

The La Liga giants are one of the favourites to win the Champions League this season, and they proved what they are capable of during the week, coming back from 4-2 down – having earlier gone 2-0 up – to secure a 4-4 draw with Villareal with two late goals.

United, on the other hand, saw Wolverhampton Wanderers deal a huge blow on their top-four hopes following a 2-1 loss at the Molineux on the same day.

There is a lot to play for on Wednesday, and the Red Devils have a lot to prove against one of the best sides in the world at the moment.
