Barcelona's Pique warns teammates to put Manchester United away if given chance

Man Utd news Barcelona Lionel Messi Champions League

"I wouldn't say that these teams don't score goals, both teams have it in them to score".

'I expect a game where we have the ball and they will try and hit us on the counter-attack with fast strong players like (Marcus) Rashford and (Romelu) Lukaku.

Ahead of Wednesday's fixture, Rakitic spoke of the respect he has for United, having grown up watching Sir Alex Ferguson's side flourish in domestic and European competition.

The last time Guardiola reached the final of Europe's biggest club competition was with Barca in 2011, when Messi was among the scorers to help the Spanish giants beat Manchester United 3-1. We have to be on our guard and look out for set-pieces from corners into the box.

Pique was briefly teammates with current United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during his time at United and he has fond memories of the Norwegian, who has turned the English side's fortunes around since replacing Jose Mourinho in December. "It's a special game for me". "We know we have to defend well against them". 'This is where I went from being a youngster to a man. "I learned a lot and I left a completely different person".

'I had some insane times here as well. I left my family and friends and lived here on my own.

'When the draw came out I was really pleased.

"I don't think they have that many players as good as them but still they've got some real quality".

'It's been a number of years.

"In the Champions League the officiating is more similar to that in LaLiga". There is a sense of nostalgia. This time I'm wearing a different shirt, one I've worn always all my life and I try to win. "I think [at Old Trafford], PSG played better".

Meanwhile, Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho named two of the Manchester United players as the biggest dangers to the Catalans, in the upcoming games.

"It's complicated to describe what you have to do to win against this team".

"I believe they could win the other three trophies but, on top of everything else, the Champions League could be too much for them".

'You can see it both on and off the pitch, the fans are into their team.
