(SOUNDBITE) (English) OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER, SAYING: "There's so many examples of teams that can change results like this.

Us as a club, we've done it so many times, the players have been fantastic away from home.

We've beaten Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham away from home which has given us belief that we can do this as well." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER, SAYING: "Never 'Mission Impossible', of course more difficult but as I said here earlier we've got to get the first goal then anything can happen.

Football is a, yes it's a technical and tactical game, but it's also a mental game.

Suddenly goals always change games, if we get the first one we'll be believing even more so and they might start doubting themselves, but it's important that we get the first one." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER, SAYING: "If there's half an hour left and there's only one goal in it anything can happen.

But we need a good plan, it needs to be put in place and we need to perform on the night of course because they are a team full of quality." STORY: Manchester United's away form gives them hope they can overturn a two-goal deficit when they face Paris St Germain at the Parc des Princes in their Champions League last-16 second leg, caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Tuesday (March 5).

Premier League United lost 2-0 at Old Trafford and they face an uphill battle on Wednesday to reach the quarter-finals as PSG have only lost one game at home this season -- a French League Cup quarter-final two months ago.

In Ligue 1, they have won all their 14 home games, scoring 50 goals and conceding five while they won two and drew one at home in the Champions League's group phase.

"The players have been fantastic away from home," Solskjaer, whose side have won all eight away matches under the Norwegian, told a news conference.

"We've beaten Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham away from home which has given us belief that we can do this as well." Solskjaer said it will be crucial for United to score first.

United travel to France without several key players as midfielder Paul Pogba is suspended while Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez are all injured.
