Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has been trolled by football fans ahead of the Red Devils' Champions League quarterfinal clash against Spanish giants Barcelona.
After the quarterfinal draws for the 2018/19 Champions League was done last week Friday, March 15, football fans around the world have been debating on the team that will win the title.
The tie between Manchester United and Barcelona is considered as the biggest clash in the Champions League last eight.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's only hope of winning any title this season is now in the Champions League and his wards are expected to make him proud.
But currently, one of the trending footballers is Chris Smalling as the England international will be in action when Man United lock horns with Barcelona in the two-legged knockout tie.
Chris Smalling will be tasked to prevent Lionel Messi and his teammates from scoring against the Red Devils when they meet.
And even without kicking the ball yet against Barcelona, many football fans have been trolling Smalling on social media as they believe it will be hard for him to stop Messi.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Lionel Messi took out time to speak on Barcelona's 4-1 win over Real Betis in a La Liga clash on Sunday night.
The play-maker netted a hat-trick, his fourth of the season and 33rd in La Liga, but his third goal was simply out of this world and will not easily fade off in memories of football followers.
In the buildup to the goal, Messi was looking away from goal, but somehow managed to chip the ball over Pau Lopez from a tight angle for his hat-trick.
