Ter Stegen: 'We want to show that we are superior to United; we don't want Roma defeat to happen again'
- The goalkeeper admits that the one-goal lead isn't 'a very big advantage'.
- He remains cautious in light of the last year's infamous Roma defeat.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen appears to be pretty determined to finish the Manchester United tie at the Camp Nou stadium this Tuesday. The first leg resulted in a narrow win for Barcelona, however, the Catalans are aware of the Red Devils' abilities to turn the things over. In the previous round, they managed to overcome a two-goal deficit against Paris Saint-Germain in the away fixture.
Diario Sport quote the Blaugrana goalkeeper as saying: "We don’t have a very big advantage. We want not only to defend it but also show that we are superior and we need to have a good game. We want to show that we are better than United and for that we have to beat them, and in our own way."

He also recalls the disastrous AS Roma defeat which saw Barcelona eliminated despite their 4-1 home win: "The Roma defeat was tough but we’re here a year later and (now) we are in this moment. We don’t want it to happen again and for that we have to take it into account, but we have to look forward and try to get a good result tomorrow with our fans behind us."
