Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has said that Barcelona will relentlessly attack in the second leg of the Champions League Quarterfinals.
Barcelona carry a slender lead against Manchester United from the first leg, thanks to an own goal from Luke Shaw. The Blaugrana did not look at their best, but they got the job done by bagging the all-important away goal at Old Trafford last week.
Despite carrying an advantage, Barcelona’s goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has sounded out that the team will be looking to attack from minute one to progress to the next round of the competition.
“We don’t have a very big advantage,” the German told reporters Monday. “We want not only to defend it but also show that we are superior and we need to have a good game.
