David Beckham has claimed that the current Barcelona team are 'the best ever', but believes his Paris Saint-Germain can defeat the Blaugrana.

The Ligue 1 side face Tito Vilanova's team in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, with the first-leg at Parc des Princes next Tuesday.

And the veteran midfielder is confident that his side can overcome the Catalan club.

“It will be very hard,” he told Le Parisien. “Following their defeat to Milan, a lot of people said that they were already finished.

“But Barcelona are not just individual talents, primarily they are a team – perhaps the best ever.

“But we have the players and the mentality [to do well]. [PSG is] a great club and is aspiring to go even further in this competition.”
