Tonight’s the night. Manchester United v Barcelona in the Champions League quarter finals. Soak it in.
This is going to be a tough test and we could be heartbroken by 10pm, but that won’t stop us believing.
Hopefully lessons have been learned from the home defeat to PSG in the previous round and we can at least get a first leg win to take to the Nou Camp.
Assistant boss Mike Phelan has urged the fans to play their part.
He sent a message on twitter this morning.
Morning all… enjoy your day 😉 bring it on.

Former United captain Gary Neville is also excited, and referenced the fact United will have to be at their best defensively.

Of course United’s defence at their best might not even be enough to shut out Lionel Messi.
Goalkeeper David de Gea will have to step up and produce one of his unbeatable performances.
The thing is, you never know in football what’s around the corner.
Nobody expected United to reach the quarter-finals, nobody expected Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to land the job full time.
Yet here we are. It’s time to believe.
