Solsjkaer's men did not manage a shot on target in the first leg and they will come up against some serious firepower in Spain on Tuesday evening

An own goal was the only strike of the game at Old Trafford in last week's first leg of this Champions League quarter-final tie as Luis Suarez's header was deflected in by Luke Shaw.

The Manchester United defender will be missing on Tuesday night through suspension, but Suarez will start for Barcelona as he looks to end a run of over year without scoring in the Champions League.

The Uruguayan is the second-shortest priced player to net at the Camp Nou behind Lionel Messi, who will look to add to his tally of eight goals in this season's competition.

Latest odds

Messi is offered at just 11/25 (1.44) with William Hill to get his name on the scoresheet and the 31-year-old has scored seven of his eight European goals this term in Barcelona.

The Argentine can also be backed at 2/1 (3.00) to open the scoring and at 23/10 (3.30) to net two or more goals - odds that reflect just how highly fancied Messi is to enjoy himself against United.

Just behind him in the betting is Suarez, offered at 4/5 (1.80) to score, while the shortest priced United player to score is Romelu Lukaku at 19/10 (2.90).

United more prolific on the road

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have managed just a single goal in five home Champions League matches, but on the road however it has been a different story with the Reds scoring in all four of their games, netting nine goals in the process.

The hero in Paris in the previous round was Marcus Rashford and the England international is priced 12/5 (3.40) to find the back of the net in Catalonia.

As well as winning in the French capital, the Premier League outfit have also won in Turin this season where Juan Mata scored a vital goal against Juventus. The Spaniard is offered at 6/1 (7.00) to net on his return to his home country.

Tips and predictions

The price of 9/2 (5.50) for Messi to score in both halves looks tempting for a value bet, while he is also available at 13/10 (2.30) to score Barcelona's first goal which seems like a logical selection.

The hosts' number 10 has netted in four Champions League matches this season and has been his side's first scorer in three of those.
