Sergio Agüero talked about Champions League's round of 16 clash versus Barça. He said the blues have learnt from last season's mistakes and he also talked about his friend Leo Messi, not a friend inside the field. Here you have his best statements:

Leo Messi

"It’s clear that friendship has no place in the field. We are both focused in giving our team the best until the whistle blows and that’s the way it should be."

Last season's 4-1

"Barça made it difficult for us last time because they kept the ball so well and that’s one of their main strengths and that made it difficult for us to dominate the game."

"We wanted to attack them more but we weren’t able to reach the final third of the pitch as often as we wanted to."

This season's clash

"This is a new game and we’re are not the same as we were last season and they aren’t, either. Both of teams have had reinforcements that have improved the squad  so we’ll have to see what kind of game it is, but one thing I think I can say with confidence is that they are both going to be great games."

"I said it last year and I’ll say it again -it’s always good to face off against the best and at this stage of the Champions League, there are only tough rivals."

"We’re confident we’ll do well – when many thought we were down and out in this competition, we defeated Bayern and then Roma in Italy. That shows we are growing as a European force and we can do it again."
