Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed what the Old Trafford side lacked in their 1-0 defeat to Barcelona on Wednesday night.
A Luke Shaw own goal in the 12th minute was enough to seal the win for the Catalan side with the second leg coming up next Tuesday at the Camp Nou.
Speaing to COPE after the game, Lukaku said: ‘Barca are not PSG, they have more experience.
‘We have to be confident and go to the Camp Nou with passion and generate more chances.
‘We lacked confidence with the ball, I hope that next week we will play better than we did today.’
United were dominated during the game as expected, but were able to hold their own for the greater part of the match.
Going into the second leg, Barcelona will have to be cautious because United have nothing to lose as the score stands.
The Catalan side will probably dominate the second leg at the Camp Nou, but they will have to watch out for the likes of Lukaku and Marcus Rashford on the counter.

The performance of Chris Smalling against Lionel Messi on Wednesday night was quite interesting and it will be very crucial for the club if they want to advance to the semi-final.
It will be difficult for United to repeat what they did against Paris Saint-Germain in the last round of the competition, but this tie against Ernesto Valverde’s men is far from over.
If United can stop Messi once again and avoid mistakes in defence, the Old Trafford side may just be heading for the semi-final for the first time since 2011.
