Pochettino hints who will scale through between Barcelona, Man United



Mauricio Pochettino

Manchester United have been drawn against Spanish giants Barcelona for the quarter-finals of the Champions League after the Red Devils were able to defeat Paris Saint Germain in the round of 16.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has tipped the La Liga outfit ahead of his Premier League counterpart to go ahead in the quarterfinals and to go ahead to win the Champions League.

Should the Spanish giants lift the Champions League, it would be the sixth time they will be doing that in their history.

However, Man United were earlier tipped to repeat the magic when they clash against Barcelona having returned to winning ways under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since he took charge in December last year.

Pochettino has not agreed with this opinion as he insists that the Red Devils have got a lot of work to do to be able to compete with Barcelona, stressing that they have got a number of players who are of a higher quality.

However, Pochettino is also expected to lead his Tottenham squad to face Man City in the quarterfinals tie. He has noted that the Citizens have been pointed to as the favourites ahead of the game but stated that his team will do all they can to win at the end of the day.
