Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen believes their one-goal advantage over Manchester United is “not enough to defend”. The Spanish champions walked away from the Champions League quarter-final first-leg at Old Trafford with a 1-0 win following Luke Shaw’s early own goal but Ter Stegen is wary of a United side that have already upset the odds this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side trailed 2-0 at the halfway stage of their last-16 fixture against Paris Saint-Germain, only to stage a remarkable comeback at the Parc des Princes to reach the last-eight. Ter Stegen says Barcelona are a different animal, but is still wary of the threat United possess, and it would be foolish to sit back on the 1-0. “The good thing is that we play differently to PSG but they are really dangerous,” he said.
“They are very quick. You always have to have be alert. I think it’s the key to win this very difficult game. “They know how to play in a very calm way. They made things really hard for us (in the first leg). The result we got in Manchester is dangerous because it’s a very small advantage, it’s not enough to defend. “We need to step forward and create risky situations. We have to keep the ball and create good chances and score.”
