Giggs fired up for Barca showdown

Ryan Giggs has told his Manchester United team-mates to seize the moment when they face Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals at Old Trafford tomorrow.

With a place in Moscow awaiting the winners, the atmosphere will be electric with the scores locked at 0-0 after last week's first leg.

Giggs, a member of the triumphant 1999 side and a veteran of 102 Champions League appearances, lives for such nights and expects others to do the same.

He said: 'It is a European Cup semi-final at Old Trafford, that's why you become a footballer. These games don't come around too often, so you have to go and make the most of it and enjoy yourself.

'I am sure we will. Every player is looking forward to this game. It is a massive match and we will be up for it. You have to do what you do best. If you are a defender, defend. If it is attacking, taking on players and scoring goals, do that.

'We defended brilliantly against a very good Barcelona team last week and have to do the same again.

'With the crowd behind us, we are noted for our attacking play and creating chances and I am confident we can do that.'

United are determined to make amends for last season, when they went out to AC Milan at the same stage.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson reacted by bringing in Owen Hargreaves and Carlos Tevez, as well as promising pair Anderson and Nani, in the summer.

And Giggs believes they can go one step further at least this season because of the quality in the squad.

He said: 'You look at the enthusiasm of the young lads and it is infectious. That's why we have been so successful this season.

'We have a good mix of experience and youth. The experienced players can use that experience in big games.

'We have players who have played in European Cup finals before.

'In addition, we have players who didn't get there last season and want to make up for that setback.'

Midfielder Darren Fletcher is quietly confident United can secure a place in the final against either Liverpool or Chelsea.

He said: 'We know if we win at Old Trafford we will qualify. It's going to be a great night and the fans will get behind us.

'If you can't get lifted for a Champions League semi-final in front of your own fans, what can you get lifted for?'
