Barca Players Want Manchester United Or Porto In The Champions League
The La Liga outfit obviously won’t say it publicly but it’s claimed they’ve expressed their preference ahead of Friday’s Champions League draw.
Both Manchester United and Porto advanced to the next round of the Champions League in dramatic fashion.
The Portuguese club beat AS Roma after extra-time with United producing an incredible comeback versus Paris Saint-Germain.
After trailing from the first-leg, United beat PSG 3-1 with Marcus Rashford scoring deep, deep into stoppage time.
Of course, Juventus made a huge impression in the last-16. They overturned a two-goal deficit against Atletico Madrid to book a spot in the next round.
Cristiano Ronaldo fired Juventus into the quarter-finals as he bagged a stunning hat-trick including a 86th minute penalty.
Meanwhile, Ernesto Valverde was pleased with Barcelona‘s European victory on Wednesday.
“It was a Champions League game and in these type of clashes it’s normal that we have moments of tension and pressure because they’re usually very tight games,” he said.
“[The first half] was extraordinary. We dominated the game, we scored two goals and we could have got more.
“In the second half, Lyon risked more, they pressed us up top, but our lads up top solved the game.
“We’re all very focused on the Champions League, Leo as well. The amazing game Leo had today was incredible.”
