Manchester United will be hoping for another miracle on as they look to beat Barcelona and progress to the Champions League semi-finals.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side lost 2-0 against Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their last 16 tie.

However, they managed to come back in France, winning 3-1 to progress to the last eight.

Their reward for defeating PSG was a tie against the Spanish giants and they again go into the second leg with a deficit.

An own-goal from Luke Shaw means United trail 1-0 going into their tie at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night.

Many sides have fallen to the 'Drake curse' in recent weeks.

As bizarre as it is, when the Canadian rapper takes a picture with a footballer, their team goes on to lose the next match.

In recent weeks, footballers including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Jadon Sancho, Sergio Aguero and Layvin Kurzawa have fallen to the curse.

Could the same now happen to Barcelona?

While Drake hasn't recently been pictured with any Barcelona stars, Manchester United's official Spanish account are trying to do their bit.

Luke Shaw's own-goal separated the two sides at Old Trafford

Ahead of the game, they posted an image of Drake in a Barcelona shirt, accompanied with a 'fingers crossed' emoji.

It seems unlikely at this current moment but, if Barcelona do go on to lose against Manchester United, it will be another bizarre coincidence.

The Drake curse has gone to such an extent that football teams are now banning their players from taking an image with him.

Roma's tweet when viral yesterday night when they said the team's players were banned from taking pictures with Drake until the end of the season.
