"I think all of us who played today, and those who didn't were thinking about the game on Tuesday". Joao Cancelo's shot deflected off the outstretched foot of the 19-year-old forward and into the left corner of the goal.

Despite walking away with a goalless draw, Barcelona went in without their key players which included Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Gerard Pique, Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets.

"I don't know what the team of United's is going to do, but we do know that we have examples of what they have done in the Champions League away from home this season".

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde was happy with his youngsters for their 0-0 draw with Huesca.

Ole Solskjaer's men were beaten at home 1-0 in the first leg of their quarterfinal clash against Barcelona at Old Trafford.

"It is true that during the match he was a little stunned but he is in ideal condition and does not have any problems ahead of tomorrow's game".

They host Ajax in the second leg of the quarter finals on Tuesday night and even if Barzagli feature in the game, he will still no doubt play a vital part in the dressing room in using his vast experience to help motivate his teammates.

"Juventus, compared to other teams, has the strength to play all games to get three points, because otherwise, if you only win the head-to-head games, you don't win Scudettos", he said. We respect them as a team, and the history they have behind them.

"It was a hard situation because lots of new people came in, but I knew it's what we had to do today". He promises that in this season they are going to do all that they can to bring to Camp Nou the handsome come. "It's the only time I've been on the pitch here", Solskjaer said. It could be one of those games where the visitors are chasing the ball for much of the game and the players may cut some pretty frustrated figures by the end of it.

"We are recovering from the bad times".

However Rashford also failed to make proper contact with his big chance early in the second-half when Ter Stegen could only punch a cross into his path.

They suffered a humiliating exit previous year by losing 3-0 at AS Roma and coach Valverde came in for serious criticism for not resting players in their game with Leganes three days before their collapse in Italy.

'We don't want them to score but our game plan as always will be to try to score, anything else would be absurd'.
