thumbnail Hello,

The Finland international feels that the Amsterdam giants would face an impossible task if they show their opponents too much respect when they travel to Camp Nou

Niklas Moisander thinks that Ajax must try to play their own game against Barcelona in Wednesday's Champions League encounter at Camp Nou.

The Eredivisie champions start their European campaign with an away game against the Spanish giants and the Finland star feels they would not stand a chance should they travel to Spain with fear on their mind.

"We shouldn't show Barcelona too much respect and must try and get a good result," he told De Telegraaf. "We cannot afford to be afraid of them, because you will definitely lose if you show fear."

The Finland international went on to stress that Ajax must improve on their performance against Zwolle on Saturday if they are to stand a chance against Barca.

"If we allow Barcelona as much space as we allowed Zwolle, Lionel Messi will have 10 one-on-ones with our goalkeeper," he warned.

"If we defend at Camp Nou like we did against Zwolle, every chance will be a goal."

Wednesday's match will be the first time that Ajax and Barcelona meet in an official game.
