Barcelona's Camp Nou will always hold a special place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's heart, but the Manchester United manager won't regard the famous old arena with quite as much fondness after this frustrating loss.
Sergi Roberto at the far post only for De Gea to redeem himself with a fantastic save. Instead, De Gea let it squirm under his body for 2-0. "The Champions League is a big competition and we'll be fighting to get back in". They've also not conceded a few times in any of those 30 games (15 goals in total) since a 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the 2012-13 semi-finals.
"We are confident but humble enough to know it's our hardest night of the season", he said in a prescient comment just before kick-off.
Luis Suarez nearly got hisgot first Champions League goal of the season on the stroke of half-time, but somehow smashed his shot into the face of De Gea from close range after Rakitic had picked the striker out with a ball across the six-yard box.
"You must have more personality to make a difference and the days that [Lionel] Messi and [Luis] Suarez do not score; he has to step up".
"Messi is one of the best players in the world and he brought his A game tonight".
Fire rips through mobile showers at Coachella music festival
Images of a fire at Coachella circulated early morning Saturday following the first day of the festival's first weekend. According to the Riverside County Fire Department , the cause of the fire is still under investigation by authorities.
In Tuesday's other quarter-final second leg, Ajax travel to Juventus with their tie delicately poised after an absorbing 1-1 draw in Amsterdam last week. The decisive spot-kick 10 minutes from time came against the run of play as West Ham dominated and looked the most likely to win the match. "If you give him space and timing around the goal he will create chances and score".
Messi could have had his hat-trick too after Luis Suarez found him with a superb cutback and there was an nearly comical sequence in the second half when the Argentinian played with his United chasers before finally being bundled over by McTominay.
The Barcelona crowd, which for so long viewed Ronaldo as its main nemesis when he was with Real Madrid, celebrated the Ajax goals when they were announced on the video monitor.
Messi was back in full force a week later. "But then they scored twice in four minutes". It's a rebuilding job but it starts with the coaches, and then the players.
"The attitude was right, we were fighting against a good team and good players out there".
Philippe Coutinho should not have gestured to the Barcelona fans as he did after scoring in Tuesday's victory over Manchester United, according to Rivaldo.
