Barcelona will aim to dominate United says Ter Stegen


(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA GOALKEEPER MARC ANDRE TER STEGEN, SAYING: "The team we are facing tomorrow is keen and so we are.

They have won some away games and our advantage is not very big but we not only want to defend it but show that we are better than them in these two games and in order to achieve this we need a good match." 2.


(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA COACH ERNESTO VALVERDE, SPEAKING ABOUT LIONEL MESSI, SAYING: " He is OK, perfectly (recovered) after the knock he sustained.

He was already good after two days.

It is true that he was a bit stunned during the match but he is perfect and with no problems for tomorrow's game." 4.


(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA COACH ERNESTO VALVERDE, SAYING: "The result... we scored one goal away but it is not a definite result.

We have to play our game so we don't have to speculate with the result, we will try to prevent them from scoring and obviously they will try to prevent us from scoring but we have to respect our style.

Our idea is to win the match." STORY: Barcelona will try to dominate Manchester United in the Champions League quarter-final second leg on Tuesday, according to goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

The Catalans hold a 1-0 lead from the first game at Old Trafford last week but Ter Stegen said on the eve of the return that Barca will not sit back and hope it was enough to progress.

Barcelona have been knocked out in the quarter-finals three seasons running, throwing away a 4-1 first leg lead to lose 3-0 at AS Roma in the return and go out on away goals last year.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde said Lionel Messi was fit to play after his knock in the first leg from Chris Smalling.

Messi and several other first team players were rested for the Catalans' 0-0 draw at Liga bottom side Huesca on Saturday.
