Barca are red hot Âfavourites to reach the final in Munich next month â but Mata is definitely not intimidated at the prospect.
âThey are a great team,â the Spaniard, who signed for ÂÂ£23.5million last summer, told the Sunday Mirror.
And with a clear Âreference to ÂLionel Messi, he added: âAnd you all know they have one of the best players in the world. But in football, nothing is impossible.
âWe have to be clinical when we get chances and we have to be Âcompact and defend as a team. We have to be Âtogether.
âBut maybe that will make it Âbetter for us. We know that if we play well, we will have Âopportunities to qualify. It is true that Barcelona have a lot of players with experience in this kind of game â but we do as well. And we have also reached a lot of Âsemi-Âfinals in the last eight years.â
