Barca must beat Liverpool at Nou Camp - Zambrotta

Barcelona defender Gianluca Zambrotta admits he would happily settle for a 1-0 victory over Liverpool in Wednesday's Champions League clash at the Nou Camp.

Barca, the reigning champions, host the team they succeeded in the first leg of their last 16 tie, and Zambrotta insists it is vital his side get some sort of lead to take to England for the second meeting.

'It is important to win. To win 1-0 would be a good. Liverpool are a team who are very difficult to play against and who play very well at their ground.' said the Italy defender.

'It is very important to make the most of this first game at home.'

Barca suffered only their third league defeat of the season last night after going down 2-1 at title rivals Valencia.

However, Frank Rijkaard's side still kept hold of top spot in the standings despite that result, and Zambrotta doubts the defeat will have much bearing on the upcoming Liverpool match.

'It is a different game because we are playing at home, in front of our fans,' he said.

'To play at the Nou Camp is to our advantage. Against Liverpool, we have to enjoy ourselves.

'It is important to win at home because the Reds are very dangerous at Anfield.'
