According to reports in 90mins, Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has claimed that the team need to improve if they are to have any chance of beating Barcelona in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals.
Barcelona host United at Camp Nou with an away goal advantage, having beaten the English side 1-0 at Old Trafford last week, but they will still be aware that the visitors are capable of turning it around in the second leg, similar to how they did against Paris Saint-Germain.
De Gea, however, believes that the team will have to do a lot better to have any chance, especially considering they needed two penalties to get their win against West Ham United on Saturday.
“Of course it’s difficult, but if you want to be a top team you have to play big Champions League games, and the weekend after it’s the Premier League,” De Gea said, according to Goal. “So you have to be focused and ready for a difficult game again. I think we didn’t play well [against West Ham], we have to improve a lot and now we have a big challenge on Tuesday.
“We will try to fight and win the game. We can go with more confidence after the three points. It’s a big challenge, a special occasion, in Spain, against Barcelona, a Champions League night, so it’s going to be an amazing game.
It remains to be seen who will come out on top, and if United indeed do the comeback again, then they can be reasonably confident they can go all the way.
