Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has urged his side to make sure they do not leave Manchester United room for another heroic comeback in the Champions League when they visit Old Trafford in Wednesday's eagerly-awaited quarter-final first leg.
"Two clubs with great history, who are very attractive to watch and have fantastic players in both teams".
"Here [at Old Trafford], I think PSG played better and in the second half they scored and they could have scored some goals."If you can beat them [by] scoring a lot of goals, you have to do it. 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.
"We have given ourselves a great chance to challenge for top four with the results just before Christmas, nobody would have thought that".
I feel that United's focus has been diverted slightly by talk of a summer clear-out of players.
"I was here from 17 to 21 and I picked up a lot of experiences required to become a professional". I played in good games alongside great players and also had some insane times off the pitch.More news: PSG forced to wait to clinch title after being held by Strasbourg

"It's a special game for me", he explained. I left my family and friends to come here and I returned to Barcelona an adult.
The central defender also had words for Real Madrid: "It is not a surprised. Real Madrid have won the Champions Leagues that they have won these years, but we have also had success". He's one of our, of course, big performers and on a big stage.
"The Champions League throws up unusual results".
"We would feel pressure if we hadn't won the competition in 20 years". Barca enters as the favorite as it continues to dominate most matches, while United has stumbled a bit as of late in the Premier League and looks to bounce back. We have done things well this season and that's why we are where we are: [11 points] clear in La Liga, in the Copa del Rey final and in the last eight in Europe.
