Real Madrid legend Guti wants to see Barcelona eliminate Paris Saint-Germain from the Champions League to distract the Catalans from their La Liga challenge.
Barca lost the first leg of their last-16 tie against PSG 4-0, which makes a comeback in the second leg highly improbable, but Guti is hopeful they can pull it off.
Los Merengues enjoy a one-point lead over Barca at the top of La Liga with a game in hand, and Guti hopes the Champions League will keep Barca distracted from their domestic league title challenge.
“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.”
