Paul Pogba has told his Manchester United teammates they need to be “ killers ” at Camp Nou if they want to progress in the Champions League .
United lost their quarter – final first leg 1 – 0 at Old Trafford on Wednesday but Pogba believes Barcelona will have doubts after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ’ s team staged a dramatic second – leg comeback against Paris Saint – Germain in the last round.
“ We are 1 – 0 down and now go to the Nou Camp but we believe chances will come over there , ” Pogba said .
“ We have to keep believing. It is a Champions League game and we know we can hurt them as well as they can hurt us . We have to avoid giving them chances and be killers in front of goal .
“ Probably Paris will be in their minds for sure because they saw what we can do against PSG. ”
Luke Shaw’ s early own goal , after deflecting in Luis Suarez ’ s header , was the difference at Old Trafford.
And although United did not manage a shot on target — they have scored just one goal at home in five Champions League games this season — Pogba insists they have nothing to fear next week .
“ We saw a team we can beat, ” Pogba said .
Barcelona were eliminated at this stage last season , losing 3 – 0 at Roma following a 4 – 1 win in the first leg.
“ If you don’ t believe that then you just let them go through . We believe we can beat them . We are Manchester United , they are Barcelona but we are Manchester United and we play in the Champions League like they do and we can go through , of course .
“ It is one leg gone and now we have to give everything in the second one . ”
