Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his side “can go all the way” in the Champions League after drawing Barcelona in the quarter-final.
The draw sees caretaker boss Solskjaer return to the Nou Camp 20 years on from scoring an injury-time winner there in the 1999 Champions League final.
United would meet Liverpool in the semi-finals should both sides progress.
“I think we’ve shown against Paris St-Germain that on any given day we can beat a top team,” said Solskjaer.
“Any team can beat anyone of the eight. There’s still top, top quality. Of course, with Cristiano [Ronaldo] still in it I don’t think it’s opened up that much.”
Solskjaer’s side became the first team to overcome a 2-0 or greater home first-leg deficit in the Champions League as they defeated PSG 3-1 to progress from the last 16.
The away-goal victory was sealed by Marcus Rashford’s injury-time penalty, which was awarded by the video assistant referee (VAR) following an anxious wait.
“There are so many variables and these games will be decided by margins. Of course that VAR, even though for me it’s a penalty, you can still be unlucky and not get it in the last minute and then we’d be out and no one would really remember the PSG performance.
“I believe that you get what you deserve in life, in sports. If you put the work in, if you work hard, show the right attitude, if you go in every single day and do the right things you can maximise your chances.
“So yes, we can go all the way but you’ve got to be lucky and good along the way.”
