Former Manchester United boss David Moyes insists that the Red Devils can overcome Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Former Manchester United boss David Moyes has insisted that the Red Devils can overcome Barcelona to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Friday's draw paired United with Barca in the quarter-finals and the Spanish champions are regarded by many as the favourites to land the trophy this season due to the form of Lionel Messi.

Moyes has admitted that it is "an incredibly tough draw" for United, but has said that the 20-time English champions will be full of confidence after overcoming Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16.

"It's an incredibly tough draw but after beating Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United can take anyone on," Moyes told Sky Sports News. "You are expecting to play one of the big boys at this stage.

"United are one of the really good teams left in the competition and they won't fear anyone. The Barcelona game is a great one, I still see them as favourites for the competition. It will be a good match. Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] going back to the Camp Nou will be big for him.

"It's the sort of occasion Manchester United are used to. I think it's a good draw for Manchester United. It's a tough one but it's the sort of games they are used to playing in."

Should United overcome Barca, they would face either Liverpool or Porto in the semi-finals of the competition.

The first leg of the last-eight tie will take place at Old Trafford on April 10, before the pair meet for the return match in Spain on April 16.
