Manchester United warned ahead of Barcelona test
In their Champions League first leg quarter-final match, United suffered a 1-0 defeat and will be keen to overturn the deficit tonight. Mata believes they will face an entirely different challenge away from off but has tipped his side for a better performance against the Catalans.
"At the Camp Nou Barca will be at their best. The first leg wasn't a classic for the supporters, they were on top until they went ahead but after that, we found a foothold in the game," Mata told Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.
"At times we were better than them but we didn't create too many opportunities. I expect Barca to be on their game at home, looking to dominate possession," he added.
The match will kick off at 10:00 PM EAT.
