Man United vs Barcelona : Match Preview
Manchester United produced one of the greatest Champions League comebacks of all time as they went to Paris Saint-Germain and won 3-1 last month, propelling them through to the quarter-finals of the competition on the away goals rule after a 3-3 draw on aggregate.
More recently, however, Barca negotiated Lyon comfortably after a scoreless first leg in France, easing to a 5-1 win at home.
It is a tie that the Red Devils are looking forward to, with centre-back Chris Smalling admitting that they cheered when they were drawn against the Catalan side.
“We also have to trust ourselves and know that if we have a good day we can give them a game.
“Obviously they are in a good moment and they are top of the table in Spain but we are confident that we are Manchester United and we can have two good games and we can qualify.”
“We are Manchester United and we are representing one of the biggest clubs in the world,” he told the Daily Star. “Fear is not the word. Respect is the word.
“Barcelona have never won at Old Trafford I believe and we are going to try and change that.”
