United know how to beat Barca at Camp Nou – Pogba

Manchester United star Paul Pogba

Manchester, April 11: Paul Pogba said Manchester United know how to beat Barcelona at Camp Nou as the Red Devils eye another Champions League comeback.

United lost 1-0 against Barca at Old Trafford on Wednesday (April 10) – Luke Shaw's 12th-minute own goal settling the first-leg quarter-final clash.

Having overturned a 2-0 first-leg deficit to reach the quarters at the expense of Paris Saint-Germain last month, United face another uphill battle away to Barca next week.

However, French star Pogba – who has been linked with Real Madrid – believes in United's chances against Barca.

"It was a good game, obviously we're playing against Barcelona, one of the best teams in the world," Pogba told reporters. "But we gave them some problems as well, they gave us some problems but we know where we can hurt them.

"Now it's one leg gone, we have the other one and we're going to give everything in this one. We're going to do everything we can to make it happen and we believe it.

"They didn't really have a lot of chances, maybe one when David (De Gea) made a great save. But after that they weren't that dangerous, not a lot of chances."

Asked if he expected to see so many cracks in Barca's game, Pogba replied: "That's what we saw in the videos.

"We know that they are a very, very strong team offensively. One of the best in the world of course. But all teams have flaws. We know what their flaws are so we're going to target that next game."

Romelu Lukaku scored twice as United stunned PSG 3-1 in the return leg of their last-16 tie in March, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side progressing on away goals.

Lukaku, who struggled against Barca midweek, knows the LaLiga champions are a different proposition compared to PSG.

"With all due respect to the PSG, we were very lucky that evening in Paris," Lukaku said. "Against Barcelona, it will be much more difficult and we know that we will have to be stronger than we were in Paris."
