Manchester United’s trip to Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League is the focus of many newspaper back pages in the United Kingdom on Tuesday.

The Times back page leads with Solskjaer warning his side that “we can’t fall asleep again” while the Daily Mail says the United boss has issued a rallying call as they “search for a miracle” in Spain.  

Solskjaer has urged his strikers to make the difference against the La Liga leaders. According to The Guardian’s back page United’s forwards must “step up” and in the Daily Star Solskjaer backs his attacking players to “Gunn them down”.

In The Daily Telegraph Nicklaus says that Woods is “hunting me down”. Meanwhile, The Guardian says that “after the miracle of Augusta Woods can go strength to strength”.
