Paul Pogba has warned Barcelona that it is only half-time in their Champions League quarter-final tie as Manchester United look to stage a repeat of their comeback against PSG in the last round.

A 12th-minute own goal from Luke Shaw saw the Spanish champions secure a 1-0 win at Old Trafford in the first leg and take a precious away goal back to Camp Nou.

But PSG netted two away goals in the last 16 before United pulled off a dramatic turnaround at the Parc des Princes, and Pogba is backing his team to do the same again.
