This was the first time Solskjaer played or managed at the Camp Nou since he won the tri-clinical winner for United in the final seconds of the 1999 Champions League against Bayern Munich.
Twenty years after the target he saw a "million times" since then, lightning did not hit twice for Norway.
"We are confident but enough to be the hardest night in the season," he said in a conscientious opinion just before the start.
United aim was to cancel another first instance deficiency after their epic efforts come back from 2-0 down to beat Paris Saint-Germain's goals away in the last 16.
But, most importantly, Marcus Rashford met the great opportunity to give a lead to United within 40 seconds and it wasn't long before Lionel Messi sent the connection beyond reach Solskjaer.
Lionel Messi expanded his incredible record of torture Premier League clubs in the Champions League.
Messi has now reached 24 goals in 32 games in the Champions League against England opponents, more than any other player in the contest.
Messi was given too much space by Fred Smalling, United United, on the outskirts of the area and getting faster from Fred and took full advantage of an excellent low shot which ended David de Gea in the 16th minute.
It was a sweet revenge for Messi, who suffered a facial injury in the first leg after hitting a Small.

Four minutes later, Messi bought Barca's return to the semi-finals for the first time since 2015, with the help of the United keeper De Gea, who failed to try to stop Argentina's weak slip under his body.
Messi has 45 goals in 41 games in all competitions this season, with 10 in the Champions League in 2018-19.
With Messi on his side, it is not surprising that Barca has no need now in the homepage of the Champions League 31 game.

Philippe Coutinho suffered a difficult time since he moved to Barcelona for 142 million ($ 185 million) in January 2018, but former Liverpool faced his timely quality with a fantastic strike to take up victory.
Instead of winning Barca recently over Rayo Vallecano at the Nou Camp, Coutinho's disappointing low form reached a new low when a small number of his own fans whistled him.
But Brazil began against United as one of Barca's first three instead of Ousmane Dembele, who has come back from a slight injury, and finally showed an insight into the talent that left him preferred United competitors at Anfield.
With Barca already well on the way to the last four minutes by 61 minutes, Coutinho had nothing to lose when he left a majestic curling effort to go into the upper corner from 20 rod.
Coutinho took the opportunity to emphasize that the suspected people will not interfere with him, celebrating the goal by sticking his fingers in both ears while staring at the crowd in bondage.
