Soccer - Iniesta retains Barcelona belief

Barcelona midfield ace Andres Iniesta, whose side are 8/11 with bet365 to reach the last four, is confident that the Catalans will progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League. Barca have left themselves with work to do after being held to a 1-1 draw by Atletico Madrid in the Camp Nou, but Iniesta sees no reason to lose heart ahead of the Vicente Calderon return. He told UEFA.com: "None of us has any doubts about our capacity to win there, any doubts about our style of play or about our team. "That it will be difficult, we know, but we will go to Madrid with every confidence of making it through." Barca and Atletico are also currently locked in a three-way battle with Real Madrid for the La Liga title. Atleti lead the way by one point from Barca, with Real a further two points back, with the race set to go to the wire as Barcelona and Atletico meet on the final day of the season.

Soccer - United to go on the attack

Manchester United, 6/1 with bet365 to reach the last four, will head to Germany looking for goals in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich. The two sides shared a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening, leaving United knowing that they must find the net in the Allianz Arena on Wednesday 9th April to have any chance of making the semi-finals. Red Devils boss David Moyes promised: "We will go toe-to-toe with them and we will try to come out on top. It is a tough tie, but we all believe we have got a chance. "We need to score. We need to go there and attempt to win the game and get some goals." Four Champions League visits to Bayern have seen United secure two draws, while being beaten 2-1 on two occasions, the last of which came in March 2010 when Ivica Olic netted a last-minute winner for the hosts.
