De Gea insists Man Utd capable of Champions League comeback

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea feels they're capable of defeating Champions League opponents Olympiacos tomorrow night.

The Reds have work to do in the second leg of the Champions League last 16 tie against the Greek champions after falling to a tame 2-0 defeat in Athens.

"We know we didn't play a good match in Greece," the goalkeeper told UEFA.com. "They were better than us and they won.

"But now there is the return leg at Old Trafford and I think that, with our fans behind us, we have to go onto the pitch and fight and attack from the first minute. By playing and pressing well, we still have a good chance.

"We will give everything we have and play a lot better than we did there. With the atmosphere and the team we have, we can succeed and hopefully reach the next round."
