Manchester United will face RB Leipzig and only one point can guarantee a spot in the knock-out stage of the Champions League.

In order to qualify for the next stage,

Manchester United

needs only one point in Germany when they will face

RB Leipzig


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

warns his players to not make silly mistakes and says that this game is a test of character.

Asked if he is relishing the prospect of a do-or-die encounter in Germany, the Norwegian head coach told MUTV :

“Definitely. That’s what the Champions League should be – and is – about. It’s a test of character, a test of how far we’ve come.

"Football is all about performing when it matters and it’s one of those tests. We’ve got to the last game. We’ve done really well to get there and, of course, we need a point.

"We want to go there and put our authority on the game and hopefully win.”

Solskjaer insists United will be going for all three points against Leipzig despite only needing one, but has warned his players not to allow complacency to creep in.

“It’s in your mind, of course it is. We know we don’t have to take silly risks. You just have to make good decisions," he said.

"The mindset has to be to go out there and try to win the game, in a way that is sensible. That’s what we’ll do.”
