Barcelona forward Ferran Torres has warned his Barcelona teammates that they will have to run ‘like there is no tomorrow’ to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The two European giants are set to go head-to-head in the second leg of the Europa League play-off round on Thursday.
The two teams fought hard last week with a 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou.
Both sides must win to advance to the next round of competition.
Torres will undoubtedly know what it takes to win at Old Trafford from Pep Guardiola’s experience at Manchester City.
United’s ground has become an impregnable fortress in recent games. United have won 14 of their last 15 games in all competitions at home.
Ahead of the highly anticipated bout, Torres said, “I have to run like there’s no tomorrow. It’s going to be a game of patience and knowing how to suffer.”
“The Premier League is a very physical league. It is true, but we have a lot of talent and that is important.”
“We will do everything we can and above all, go with young people who are ready to take on the world.”

In a 2-2 draw, Torres started on the bench and only came on as a substitute.
Torres put in a great performance in Blaugrana’s 2-0 victory over Cadiz at the weekend, earning him praise from manager Xavi Hernández.
Reports from Spain indicate that Torres’ performance against Cadiz has put him in the starting line-up for Thursday’s game against United.
