Arturo Vidal says Barcelona were thinking about Manchester United against Huesca

Arturo Vidal reckoned Barcelona’s minds were on Manchester United during Saturday’s goalless draw at Huesca.

Ernesto Valverde rotated his team heavily for the game and handed youngsters such as Jean-Clair Todibo, Moussa Wague and Riqui Puig starts.

The team did enough to secure a point at La Liga’s bottom side, but Vidal says they were distracted by the upcoming Champions League quarter-final second leg.

“I think all of us playing are thinking about Tuesday’s match, and those who stayed at home too,” he said.

”The Champions League is a dream for everyone. It’ll be difficult, but we earned a good result in Manchester.

”We’ll go step by step. First we have Manchester United and then we’ll go for another three points in the league.”

Barcelona face Manchester United on Tuesday at the Camp Nou leading 1-0 from the first leg and should be fairly fresh after giving plenty of their regulars a breather on Saturday.
