ENERSTO VALVERDE WARY OF POWERFUL UNITED



Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde says he is wary of "powerful" Manchester United ahead of the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
The two sides go head-to-head at Old Trafford on Wednesday for the 12th time in Europe but the first since the 2011 Champions League final at Wembley, which Barcelona won 3-1.
Despite only losing three of the eleven meetings between the teams, the Spanish giants have never beaten United away from home, something Valverde is well aware of but is hoping to change.
"They are a powerful team. They are going through a good run, even if they lost their last match (against Wolves in the Premier League)," he said.
"Physically they are really strong and they know how to put pressure on their opponents. They have players who are physically very powerful, and they can be dangerous strategically as well.
"This match is a classic in European football. Barcelona have never won at Old Trafford I believe and we are going to try and change that."
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his assistant Mike Phelan were in attendance at the Nou Camp as Barcelona beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 on Saturday.
