Solskjaer's men qualified in the Champions League last eight after defeating Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 in the round of 16 second-leg encounter last week.

'Everything has been going well but football kicks you in the teeth sometimes.

"I remember thinking the Old Trafford atmosphere at the time wasn't as loud or boisterous as I'd expected", he said.

"The confidence in the players, it's sky high. We had the final against them in 2009 and 2011 (both of which Barca won) and the semi-final in 2008 when Scholesy (Paul Scholes) scored", Solskjaer said.
