Shaw own goal gives Barca advantage over tame United


(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA COACH, ERNESTO VALVERDE, SAYING: "Well, with a good taste in our mouth and, even though we know it was close, and no matter that it was close, there is a second game.

We know how Manchester United are away keeping in mind the last qualifier (against PSG).

And it was a really intense, tough match, as we had anticipated.

There were moments in which we suffered, but we are happy." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA COACH, ERNESTO VALVERDE, SAYING: "(Answering question on how important Suarez is) Very much.

The value of what he does is not dependent on whether a player touches the ball at the last minute or not for it to be awarded to him or not.

You'll still ask me about Luis Suarez at news conferences.

But I mean, he was fighting with all the defence from the start, there was another clear chance to score.

And we are all happy with his work.

Generally, I am happy with the whole team.

There were moments that we suffered, but to win away in Champions you have to suffer some.

You just have to look at the results of the four games." STORY: Barcelona overcame a punchless Manchester United to take the upper hand in their Champions League quarter-final after Luke Shaw's own goal gave them a 1-0 first-leg victory at Old Trafford on Wednesday (April 10).

Shaw deflected a Luis Suarez header into his own net after 12 minutes, handing the Catalans a vital away goal that will make them clear favourites in the return leg.

After United's comeback against Paris St Germain in the previous round, Barca will take nothing for granted, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team will struggle to repeat the trick against a side with a fearsome home record.

Barca have not lost at home for 30 games in the Champions League since 2013 and while United can take credit for staying in the tie, they produced little that will overly worry the Spanish side.
