Vidal says goalless Barca distracted by thought of United

Vidal says goalless Barca distracted by thought of United

"However, I will line up a tough and fair team for the challenge that awaits us".

Messi's presence in the starting XI serves as a significant boost but the 31-year-old has not scored at this stage of the competition since 2013, a streak spanning 12 quarter-final appearances.

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has warned his side must improve against Barcelona in their Champions League second leg clash.

"We will be true to our style but we are also aware of what they have in attack and the game can't become you attack us, we attack you".

Valverde fielded an nearly unrecognizable starting 11 on Saturday in a 0-0 draw at Huesca, the Spanish league's bottom team.

Suarez came very close to breaking his scoreless streak last week at Old Trafford, when his header deflected off Luke Shaw before finding the net for an own-goal by the United defender in the 1-0 victory for Barcelona.

"Yes, he was a little bit stunned during the game, but he has no problem at all for the game tomorrow".

SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch
SpaceX chief operating officer Gwynne Shotwell flew to Saudi Arabia to reassure them that the Falcon Heavy would be reliable. Air Force 45th Space Wing are predicting an 80 percent chance of good launch conditions for the almost two-hour window.

'Those that start the game will be important but so will those that finish it, ' said Valverde.

Juve only needed a point to be certain of winning the league and Massimiliano Allegri made a whole host of changes, resting Cristiano Ronaldo, Federico Bernardeschi, Mario Mandzukic, Alex Sandro, Miralem Pjanic, Blaise Matuidi, Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini ahead of their Champions League quarterfinal second leg against Ajax. He said: 'With just six days between games I knew I had to do something. We respect them as a team, and the history they have behind them.

The Red Devils are faced with a daunting task to shock the tournament favourites as they look to overturn a 1-0 defeat suffered in the first leg. 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. I am attracted to various ideas in the world of football, and I will take the time to decide. "You usually win the Scudetto with 84-86 points but last term Napoli had 91 - a club record - and still finished second, so our performance that season was extraordinary". Last time it was 5-0 in Porto and 0-0 at Anfield, this time it was 2-0 in Liverpool and think we may have a similar scoreline this time round.

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.

"Of course we always want to win, but there were some exceptional circumstances for us here", Valverde told his postmatch news conference.

United's greatest threat in recent weeks has tended to come on the counter-attack but Solskjaer insists they can not afford to sit back.
