|After a deadlock at the Nou Camp last Wednesday, Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson promised his side would make the most of their lost counter-attacking opportunities this time round.|
“The game starts at Old Trafford,” he said. “At home, it will be quite different.” In the first leg, Barcelona had the majority of possession and the most chances on goal after Cristiano Ronaldo missed an early penalty kick.
“I’ve scored a few penalties and today I didn’t score,” the Portuguese winger said after the match. “But I will score at Old Trafford, no problem.”
Alex Ferguson confessed that Man U didn’t play aggressively enough on the counter-attack in the first leg, but promised a more attacking game.
