Solskjaer got mad after match with West Ham

On Saturday, Manchester United played their 33rd match of the English championship, in which they minimally defeated West Ham. Thanks to the victory, the red Devils improved their positions in the tournament table and continue claiming the top four.

On Wednesday, Solskjaer’s team had its first match against Barcelona within the framework of the Champions League quarter-finals. The team from Manchester did not manage to score at Old Trafford, while the Catalans scored one goal and on Tuesday already will host Solskjaer’s side at Camp Nou.

After the match of the championship, Man Utd’s Norwegian manager was extremely dissatisfied with his team playing two matches with Barcelona in less than a week. Man Utd’s new manager expressed his thoughts in anger at a press conference on the UEFA’s address on that matter,

“Someone has to explain me, why do we play on Wednesday and Tuesday and others on Tuesday and Wednesday?

We tried to google it, but found nothing. The UEFA must change this, 100%.”

On the other hand, Manchester United knew what they were getting into. The team has not advanced to the stage for quite a long time. The victory over PSG away undoubtedly was Solskjaer’s merit, who gave the right mindset to the team. Whereas Barcelona are not PSG and Man Utd have little chance to advance at Camp Nou, although the Catalans won the first match only 0:1 and not 0:2 like the Parisians.

Bookmakers understand that very well; therefore the odds on the Red Devils to advance are 9,00, while on Barcelona this indicator is 1,07. At the same time, the main markets for the match are evaluated as follows: the odds on Barcelona’s victory are 1.43, on a draw 5.15 and on the guests’ victory – 7.90.

The situation can absolutely be explained by Bailly, Valencia and Herrera not playing for Man Utd and therefore it will not be difficult to get to de Gea’s goal, although Suarez is unlikely to play for Barca.
