Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen believes their one-goal advantage over Manchester United is "not enough to defend" ahead of tonight's return leg of the Champions League quarter-final.

The La Liga champions came away from Old Trafford with a 1-0 win but Ter Stegen is wary of a side that have already upset the odds this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side fought back from 2-0 down to progress past Paris St Germain in the last round.

Ter Stegen said: "The good thing is that we play differently to PSG but they are really dangerous.

"They are very quick. You always have to be alert. They know how to play in a very calm way. They made things really hard for us (in the first leg).

"The result we got in Manchester is dangerous because it's a very small advantage, it's not enough to defend. We need to step forward and create risky situations. We have to keep the ball and create good chances and score."
