Barcelona defender Jordi Alba has waxed lyrical about his side’s performance against Premier League giants Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League last eight tie.
Spanish champions Barcelona have put themselves in a fantastic place after they defeated the Red Devils 1-0 away from home.
In his recent interview as monitored by Goal, Jordi Alba told reporters about his excitement at the way his Barcelona side controlled their first leg clash with Manchester United.
The Spanish international left-back expressed his delight at the win before stating that the same approach is needed for the second leg.
Manchester United have their work cut out if they want to continue to play Champions League football beyond the quarterfinal stage.
With the Red Devils trailing 1-0 from their home leg, they will have to beat Barcelona to stand any chance securing a semifinal berth.
It’s a difficult task for Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players but they can draw inspiration from their PSG heroics.
Manchester United were in a similar position in their last 16 tie clash with PSG when they lost 2-0 from their home leg but they were able to secure a last eight spot via the away goals rule after beating the French giants 3-1.
