Champions League: Solskjaer predicts team that will win trophy after Man Utd exit




Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said Barcelona will win the Champions League this season.

Solskjaer’s United were bundled out by Barca in the quarter-finals, after Lionel Messi’s brace secured a 3-0 second-leg victory on Tuesday.

Philippe Coutinho’s long-range stunner following the interval sealed a 4-0 aggregate success and kept their treble hopes alive.

Asked about Barca’s Champions League chances ahead of a semi-final against either Liverpool or Porto, Solskjaer told reporters: “I think Barcelona will win yeah.

“With the quality they have in the front three. They’ve got [Ousmane] Dembele and Malcom, players there to put on.

“I wouldn’t bet against them, even though I don’t bet.

“But for me they will be favourites to win the whole tournament.”
