Barcelona defender Lilian Thuram has warned his team-mates not to think they have got off lightly by drawing German side Schalke in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

In being paired with Schalke, who are making their debuts at this stage of the Champions League, and avoiding the powerful English quartet of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United, many will feel Barca have done well out of Friday´s draw in Nyon.

However, French international Thuram insists they cannot be complacent against a Schalke side who were Bundesliga runners-up last season and are currently fifth this campaign.
