Manchester United will approach Tuesday’s Women’s Champions League qualifier as their biggest ever game, says manager Marc Skinner.
United will make their debut in the competition when they host Paris St-Germain at Leigh Sports Village (20:00 BST).
The winner of the two-legged second-round tie advances to the group stage.
“We want to be at this stage, we want to continue for our fans and win things for this club,” Skinner said on Monday.
Asked if the fixture was the club’s biggest ever game, the United boss added: “We will approach it that way with our energy and our commitment, but also if you put it on a mantle it will be too big.”
United finished second in the Women’s Super League last season, two points behind winners Chelsea – who have already qualified for the group stages along with holders Barcelona, plus Lyon and Bayern Munich.
“I’m under no illusions as to how difficult this is but there’s something special about Manchester United and Champions League nights,” Skinner said.
