"We learned against Barca that we have to keep the ball and try to break them down on the counter," he told UEFA.com. "That's something we're good at and if we do it well, we'll get results against many teams."
Wanyama also reflected on his experience of playing against Barcelona midfielder Xavi at Celtic Park.
"He's one of the best in the world, so good! It's hard to match him – he never loses the ball – and it's tough to get around him," said the 21-year-old. "You never get him easy, you have to be sharp to win the ball."
Wanyama joined Celtic from Beerschot AC in 2011.
