  • Barcelona Will Have Many Chances To Beat Man Utd – Andres Iniesta

Manchester United players cheered when the draw for the Champions League quarter-finals pitted them against Barcelona, according to defender Chris Smalling.

"I watched both their games",
revealed Pique.

Manchester United never know when they are beaten and must not be underestimated by Barcelona in the Champions League, says Gerard Pique. If you can beat them by scoring a lot of goals you have to do it, because they have a great team and have great history. His chemistry with Lionel Messi could play a large part in this as the Argentine has a large influence due to being the best player as well as the captain, and the two of them have a strong connection on and off the pitch.

"It's a great example for us, we have to be very concentrated from the first minute to last minute of the tie".

It's probably also a good thing for United to have the first leg at home.

Having been at Manchester United earlier in his career, he reflected on what it was like to play at Old Trafford and to have Ole Gunner Solskjaer as a teammate.

Since their last Champions League success in 2015, Barcelona have been eliminated in the quarterfinals at the hands of Atletico Madrid, Juventus and AS Roma. "I came here alone, without my family, I learned a lot and I left a completely different person", he recalled. "He knows the game against PSG was not his greatest moment so he is only focused on playing well tomorrow against Barcelona".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned that global banks and businesses "have a clear duty" to not work with the organization. Iran's top security council designated U.S. military forces a "terrorist organisation" in reaction to Washington's decision.

"In the summer of 2015, Paul Pogba was playing in Turin and we simply told Juve that, if one day they decide to sell the player, we would be interested", he told ESPNFC.

"It's a special game for me", he explained. "He's one of our, of course, big performers and on a big stage", Solskjaer said.

"We would feel pressure if we hadn't won the competition in 20 years". They've scored two goals in eight of their last nine games, and it seems likely that they'll find the net here in this one.

"We cheered and then we got on with training".

"There is a lot of excitement, not pressure".
