Barca star: Two ways in which Man United could hurt us

Sergio Busquets has named two ways in which Manchester United can overcome Barcelona.

Barca are favourites for the Champions League quarter-final tie and third-favourites to win the competition overall, behind Manchester City and Juventus.

The reigning and soon to be defending La Liga champions have been knocked out at the quarter-final stage in each of the last three seasons, and will be wary of a United side that beat PSG in sensational fashion in the last 16.

Busquets believes that United – soon to be drifting into mid-table obscurity – could “take advantage” of Barca at set-pieces or counter-attacks.

“It’s not the most difficult path but nor is it the easiest,” he told The Guardian.

“If you’re telling me we can get to the final, tell me where to sign.

“United are better under Solskjaer. They don’t mind letting you have the ball. Their opponents might be better technically but, as we saw with PSG, they counter-attack well and they’re good at set-pieces.

“If you make any mistakes, they’ll take advantage.”

Will they beg for mercy like Wayne Rooney though?
