Pique wants packed stadium for Inter clash
Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has urged the public to fill the Camp Nou stadium and cheer on the Spanish side during their UEFA Champions League semi-finals second leg against Inter Milan.
"I hope the Camp Nou makes history. I hope it will be a Camp Nou as it has never been seen before, that there is not one empty seat and when the players enter the pitch they hate their profession for 90 minutes," he told a news conference on Monday.
"What I want is for the fans to encourage Barcelona and that there be zero violence. That the fans be with us and so they will feel alone," the Spanish international added.
Barcelona are looking to overcome their 3-1 loss to Inter Milan during the first leg. Pique said the match will be "the most important game of the recent history of Barcelona" but he believes his side can bounce back against the Italian side.
He said playing at home gave Barcelona an advantage and declined to comment on Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho. "Once the game begins, Mourinho is on the bench and can do nothing because it will be 11 players facing off against 11 players," he said.
