Nolito: We’ll make Barca sweat

Benfica midfielder Nolito has warned ex-club Barcelona they'll have to 'run and sweat' to win tomorrow night's Champions League game.

The Spanish winger, who played for Barca's B side from 2008 to 2011, is part of an Eagles side that are currently top of the Portuguese League and not lacking in confidence.

“It's a pretty nice game,” the 25-year-old grinned in a pre-match press conference. "It's not every day you play against Barca.

“The goal is to win, of course. Football is eleven against eleven. Barca is a great team, but tomorrow they will have to run and sweat a lot to win the game.”

The Blaugrana go into the game top of Group G having won their opening fixture 3-2 against Spartak Moscow. Benfica meanwhile, sit second, following their scoreless draw with Celtic in Glasgow.
