Barca ace wary of United threat
Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen believes their one-goal advantage over Manchester United is ‘not enough to defend’.
The Spanish champions walked away from the Champions League quarter-final first-leg at Old Trafford with a 1-0 win following Luke Shaw’s early own goal but Ter Stegen is wary of a United side that have already upset the odds this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side trailed 2-0 at the halfway stage of their last-16 fixture against Paris Saint-Germain, only to stage a remarkable comeback at the Parc des Princes to reach the last-eight.
Ter Stegen says Barca are a different animal, but is still wary of the threat United possess, and it would be foolish to sit back on the 1-0.
‘The good thing is that we play differently to PSG but they are really dangerous,’ he said.
‘They are very quick.
You always have to have be alert.
I think it’s the key to win this very difficult game.
‘They know how to play in a very calm way.
They made things really hard for us (in the first leg).
The result we got in Manchester is dangerous because it’s a very small advantage, it’s not enough to defend.
‘We need to step forward and create risky situations.
We have to keep the ball and create good chances and score.’
