Suarez hopes to end CL scoring drought as Barca faces Man U

"You usually win the Scudetto with 84-86 points but last term Napoli had 91 -- a club record -- and still finished second, so our performance that season was extraordinary".

"It is very hard over the course of a season to always be at the highest level", said Valverde.

The return leg is at the Nou Camp on Tuesday (20:00 BST kick-off).Referring to his aerial challenge on Messi, Smalling added: "I didn't realise at the time that I'd actually caught him like that."Suarez [came up to me] after the game as well".

It was only SPAL's second ever win against Juventus but marked their third successive home victory after they beat Roma and Lazio.

Barca are well on course to lift an eighth Spanish league title in 11 years after beating nearest challengers Atletico Madrid 2-0 last week, and Vidal said Tuesday's second leg against United was their priority. It was a test for the players that played, and I think they did well.

"We paid a little for our inexperience", said Allegri. He is available to play but maybe not for 90 minutes'.

As for Barcelona, they'll enjoy themselves here more than you'd expect, given it's a tough quarter-final match and my money is on "you know who" being the one doing the damage.

Dembele also saw a shot go just wide, but overall it was a tiresome game with Huesca unable to seriously challenge Ter Stegen in the Barca goal.

'We don't want them to score but our game plan as always will be to try to score, anything else would be absurd'.

Barcelona manager, Ernesto Valverde, has admitted that Lionel Messi was left stunned by his treatment at the hands of Manchester United last week.

How the Reds have really changed (some might say improved) is in how they can play different ways this year and that 0-0 at home to Bayern Munich was a good example of that. "If we get to injury-time we are a fit team".

And the Norwegian manager has revealed that the Scotland global was kept fresh ahead of United's Champions League game against Barcelona in midweek.

The early goal should have settled the Catalans into their stride as their dominance of possession was close to 90 percent in the opening stages.
