Champions League: 3 reasons why Manchester United can still progress
- We pick three reasons why Manchester United can still progress through to the semi-final of the Champions League this season.
#2 Belief from the turnaround against Paris Saint-Germain
"Mountains are there to be climbed, aren't they?" the Red Devils boss said after his team lost the home leg 0-2 against Paris Saint-Germain. It looked like an impossible task for them to progress to the next round as no team in the Champions League history had qualified for the next round after losing the home leg by 2 goals or more. Furthermore, they found themselves without 10 first-team players for the game in Paris. But the players, as well as the manager, did not stop believing and managed to beat PSG 1-3, performing a footballing miracle.
The Manchester United players will step onto the pitch full of belief against Barcelona. The deficit is not too significant and if they manage to open the scoring, they could well turn the tie on its head.
