Xavi: Barca can conquer Old Trafford

Published Add your comment

Barcelona midfielder Xavi led the chorus of rallying cries in the Catalan ranks as Frank Rijkaard´s players remained confident of reaching the final of the Champions League despite Wednesday night´s stalemate with Manchester United.

Rijkaard´s side could only draw 0-0 at home in the semi-final first leg, but Xavi, Samuel Eto´o and Gabi Milito all insist the club can prevail at Old Trafford on Tuesday to qualify for next month´s final in Moscow.

"The only thing missing was the goal and that leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. We dominated the 90 minutes. We are happy with the image we gave, but not the result," he said. "This team is capable of going to any ground and winning, so I have no doubt we can make the final."
