Real Madrid great Guti revealed he wanted Barcelona to stage a remarkable comeback to beat Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. Luis Enrique's men are on the verge of a last-16 exit, trailing 4-0 on aggregate ahead of the second leg at Camp Nou on March 8.

But Guti, a Madrid great who won five La Liga titles and three Champions Leagues with the club, hopes to see a comeback. And the Madrid youth coach would also like to see Barca defender Gerard Pique, outspoken in his criticism of Real, be the hero.

"I want Barcelona to come back against PSG in the Champions League that way they won't be able to focus on La Liga as much," he told El Chiringuito. "I want Pique to score the fifth goal because he deserves it, he is the only one facing the situation head on, despite getting criticised by all sides."

Madrid is in control of its Champions League tie after a 3-1 win over Napoli in the first leg. It is also a point clear of Barcelona atop La Liga, and has a game in hand.
