Carragher ready to expose Barca's weak points

Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool can continue their unbeaten record at the Nou Camp tonight and take advantage of Barcelona's 'weaknesses' in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 match.

Both sides' preparations for the eagerly-anticipated clash have been hampered by internal problems but England defender Carragher believes the Reds, winners in 2005, will be able to transfer their work on the training pitch onto the Nou Camp turf.

'Barcelona are a top side but, as with every side, they have weaknesses and that's what we've been working on trying to exploit,' said Carragher.

'We know what we have to do on the night and now it's up to us to enjoy playing in one of the world's great stadiums and make sure we get the right result.'

Carragher, who has an encyclopaedic knowledge of European football, knows all about the Spanish game and has seen a lot of Barcelona in action recently.

'I watch some of the big Spanish league games on TV on a Saturday night and it's a good way to relax after our game.

'I always like to watch top teams like Barcelona and Real Madrid, and the players who play for them, because there are always things to learn,' he said.

'I've been watching Barcelona a lot lately and I don't see much wrong with them. They controlled much of the game against Valencia (which they lost 2-1 on Sunday) and were probably a bit unlucky.

'They're still top of their league and are also champions of Europe, so there can't be that much wrong.'

Liverpool have played three games at the Nou Camp and are yet to concede a goal - a record that the central defender believes the Reds can continue tonight.

'We've had some good results in the past and I'm sure 0-0 would be considered a good score this time as well. We're playing against the European champions and against a side who went close to becoming world champions as well, so we know it's going to be difficult,' he said.

Carragher did not witness the incident between team-mates Craig Bellamy and Jon Arne Riise at last week's training camp in Portugal, when the Welsh striker was alleged to have struck the Norwegian defender with a golf club, but claimed that there is a good atmosphere within the squad.

'We've had 10 days since our last match and we went to Portugal to prepare for this game, so we are ready,' he said.

'I wasn't there, so I can't comment on what happened, but there is a good atmosphere at the club and we are all looking forward to it.'

Carragher will start in central defence for Liverpool, while Denmark international Daniel Agger is likely to be preferred to Finnish centre-back Sami Hyypia.

Riise also looks set to start, despite his involvement in last week's fracas in Portugal.

Manager Rafael Benitez looks set to opt for a 4-4-1-1 formation, with Dutch striker Dirk Kuyt alone up front.

Kuyt will be expected to hold the ball up in attack and will receive support from captain Steven Gerrard, who will be asked to play just behind the former Feyenoord man.
