Piqué: 'We must go out with knives between our teeth'

FC Barcelona centre back offers his views ahead of Wednesday's must-win fixture away to Bayern Munich

No sooner had the FC Barcelona squad arrived in Munich than Gerard Piqué was speaking to media about Wednesday’s crunch 9.00pm CET kick-off against Bayern.

Here's a selection of the choicest quotes:

Approach to the game

“Just because of what’s at stake, we’ve got to go out there with knives between our teeth.”

“The way we are right now, and knowing that we have to win, this is a chance to convince ourselves of what we’re made of.”

“We have to take our chances. We have to play a practical game. We have to go for them and put them under pressure on their own ground.”

“Our last two games against this team didn’t go the way we hoped, but all that is now in the past.”


Not conceding goals

“We have to focus on what we know we can do. The first thing is to keep a clean sheet, or at least not let in too many goals.”

“How do we stop Lewandowski? By keeping him away from our area. Robert's a very, very good player and I think it’s his goals that make the difference in his team. We have to play in their half.”

Current situation

“Right now we aren’t where we’d like to be either in La Liga or the Champions League. But the team is doing things that it hasn’t done for a long time. There are still a lot of shortcomings, but this is a long process and won’t happen overnight.”

“There are things like winning back possession in the opposition’s half. I am sure that our football and our goals will eventually come. The team still has all the intensity and desire to win trophies.”

“Winning here and qualifying for the next round would improve our situation. And there’s still a long way to go in the league.”
