Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 11/04/2019

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has reacted to his team slim win over Manchester United in the Champions League first-leg quarterfinal.

Barcelona won the game 1-0 via Luke Shaw’s own goal and had an advantage going to the second leg tie at Camp Nou.

"To come here is always really tricky, the stadium is majestic, it's a club with a lot of history, sensational, the fans here push a lot and it's really hard to win," said Pique.

"The first half they pressed but we had the better chances, although there weren't many of them. (In the second half) it was more equal and the few chances were ours, but we did not take advantage of them.

"Details decide that we would win the game, like scoring quickly which kept us calm and after we knew how to play with that advantage. Also not conceding helped us a lot to get a good result.”

Barcelona will entertain Manchester United at the Camp Nou next week.
