The Premier League champions travel to the Allianz Arena for the second leg of their quarter-final clash with the European champions having played out a 1-1 draw in the first encounter at Old Trafford last week.

However, the Red Devils’ record signing believes that his team-mates have enough quality to be able to score in Bavaria and so make it through to the semi-finals.

“We are Manchester United and I’m sure we can make it through!” said Mata.

“The victory at Newcastle gives us a lot of energy for our game in Munich on Wednesday. In the first leg, it was a great night with our supporters giving us the power to cope with such a tough game.

“On Wednesday I’ll be supporting from home, in front of the TV, aware that the Allianz Arena is one of the toughest stadiums in Europe… but Newcastle was a key victory to try to climb on the table and to go to Germany full of confidence.”
