UCL: Solskjaer Hopes For Man United 'Miracle' In Paris
With eight consecutive away victories, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already has his name in Manchester United’s record books.
The club legend is still gunning for even more as he insists that he has not given up on injury-hit Manchester United shocking Paris St Germain in Wednesday Champions League tie.
Given all 106 teams that have previously secured a 2-0 first leg away win in the European Cup have made it through, United have to make history at the Parc des Princes if they are to progress from Wednesday's last-16 clash.
Solskjaer freely admits that they have a mountain to climb, but the caretaker manager was quick to point to their European history and PSG's soft underbelly on the eve of the second leg.
"Of course, everyone knows that we can do it, we have done it - and the results in Champions League in the last few years," Solskjaer said at the Parc des Princes.
"I don't want to call it strange, but last year Juventus lost 3-0 at home against Real Madrid and suddenly they were 3-0 up after 90 minutes against Madrid away.
"The year before that, PSG against Barcelona. We all remember those results. So, there are so many examples of teams who can change results like this.
"Also, as a club, we've done it so many times. The players have been fantastic away from home, beaten Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, which has given us the belief we can do this as well."
That belief, and United's current club-record run of eight successive away wins, is why Solskjaer says this second leg was "never mission impossible".
