Barcelona president Laporta: We have more quality than Man Utd

After last night's 0-0 draw, Xavi said: "Looking at the encounter, I believe that we did everything to gain a better result. They were a little conservative, but it is normal when you play away. It was logical and in addition we gave them some concerns.

"In England, we will have more space, because here we did not have that. The Champions League is not the Liga, the players are more motivated.

"The fans were ten out of ten and it was pleasant to play tonight. They know that we still have 90 minutes on their pitch and the key will be to score."

Barcelona president Joan Laporta was more forceful.

He beamed: "When we play our game, we produce the best football in the world. Manchester United has great power, but we have more quality and I hope we demonstrate this over there in England. It will be a game worthy to see.

"I am proud of the team."
