Barcelona director Javier Bordas said next month Turkish midfielder Arda Turan will make the difference for the team besting Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final after losing in the same round in 2014.
Bordas, who represented Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw in Nyon, told Anadolu Agency on Friday, "Barcelona lost to Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final in 2014 when Arda Turan was playing in Atletico Madrid. Now he plays for us."
"This is a great opportunity for our team with this pairing against Atletico Madrid, as Arda Turan is now a Barcelona player," Bordas said.
"Arda fits into Barcelona very well and we are happy to have him," he added.
Europe's top international club-level football tournament draw was held on Friday in Nyon, Switzerland.
Turkish football star Turan's former Spanish team, Atletico Madrid, have been drawn against his new Spanish club Barcelona in the quarter-final.
Champions League quarter-final games will be played on April 5 and 6, and April 12 and 13.
