Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has warned his team-mates not to take anything for granted when they play Manchester United in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
The Spanish giants take a 1-0 lead into the game at the Nou Camp and are the warm favourites to progress to the semi-final fir the first time since 2015.
Despite holding a 4-1 lead from the first leg against Roma a year ago, Barcelona were beaten on away goals and Ter Stegen admits the game serves as a reminder to the team ahead of the visit of United.
"We don't want that to happen again. We need to bear it in mind and look forward. It was hard of course but it's another year on, we got over it," Ter Stegen told a pre-match press conference.
United reached the quarter-finals after staging a remarkable comeback against Paris Saint-Germain and the Barcelona shotstopper is aware of the threat they possess.
"The good thing is that we play differently to PSG but they are really dangerous," he went on. "The result we got in Manchester is dangerous because it's a very small advantage - it's not enough to defend. We need to step forward and create risky situations. We have to keep the ball and create good chances and score.
"United are very quick. You always have to have be alert. I think it's key to win this very difficult game tomorrow.
"They know how to play in a very calm way. They made things really hard for us. Tomorrow we want to go out and master the game, have the ball as much as possible.
"We are facing this team who is eager and so are we. They have had some games away they won and of course the advantage is not so big for us.
"We want to defend it and uphold it but we want to state our superiority and for that we need to play a good game."
