Barcelona host Manchester United in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday at the Camp Nou.

In the wake of his team's goalless LaLiga draw on the weekend, an FC Barcelona star has now insisted the Spanish giants have their sights set on Manchester United, saying the "dream is the UEFA Champions League".

"You usually win the Scudetto with 84 to 86 points, but last term Napoli had 91 - a club record - and still finished second, so our performance that season was extraordinary. We had just played on Wednesday and we have the second leg on Tuesday and I thought this was the moment to make changes", said the Barca coach. They are not used to losing at home'. "But we've had such a remarkable run of results this season that it was more important to focus on the Champions League game coming up".

They suffered a humiliating exit a year ago by losing 3-0 at AS Roma and coach Valverde came in for serious criticism for not resting players in their game with Leganes three days before their collapse in Italy. He made an immediate impact, helping the club sweep the league, Copa del Rey and Champions League, scoring seven goals in Europe.

After the game, there was a pleasant sight to be seen, as Romelu Lukaku's mother asked for a picture with Lionel Messi.

An errant offside flag briefly threatened to spoil Suarez's delight. It's been a downward trend for the former Liverpool player in continental competition. "It is going to be hard to get a good result against Manchester", said Arturo Vidal, one of the few regular players to start for Barcelona.

Pep Guardiola’s two-word reaction to Liverpool’s late victor v Spurs
Tottenham Hotspur welcomed the inauguration of their new stadium with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in the English Premier League. Spurs are now on a five-game winless run in the Premier League with their last victory coming against Leicester City in February.

The early goal should have settled the Catalans into their stride as their dominance of possession touched close to 90 per cent in the opening stages. As such, they'll have plenty of motivation on Saturday. Seeing their eternal rivals, Real Madrid, win four of the last five Champions Leagues is probably not sitting well with the Catalans, and so focusing nearly exclusively on the Champions League at this point in the season makes a lot of sense.

"Manchester United have something special in the last minutes of games".

The incident left the Argentine ace with a bloodied nose and swollen face for the rest of the game.

Back came Barcelona, Dembele getting away from a defender on the edge of the area but he was crowded out before he could get a shot in.

Juventus have won the Champions League twice, most recently in 1996 when they beat Ajax in the final.
