​Manchester United interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted that they may need to have a bit of luck on their side if they are to win the Champions League this season. 

The Premier League outfit beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 (3-3 on aggregate) in the return leg to set up a two-legged quarter-final against Barcelona in April. 

Solskjaer has acknowledged that United profited from a decisive call in their favour to beat the Parisians, with Marcus Rashford netting the all-important goal from a penalty awarded for handball with the help of VAR in the dying moments of the match. 

On paper, Barcelona are a much stronger team, and Solskjaer has accepted that his side needs to be a little lucky to go all the way in the competition. 

"I think we've shown against PSG that on any given day we can beat a top team," said Solskjaer, who has turned United's fortunes since taking over from Jose Mourinho, as quoted by France 24

"Then again, there are so many variables and these games will be decided by margins. And of course with that VAR decision, 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."

"So yes, we can go all the way but you've got to be lucky and good along the way," he concluded.
