Manchester City’s first ever appearance in Champions League knock-out stages hasn’t exactly gone to plan so far, having lost the first leg of their last 16 meeting with Barcelona at the Etihad Stadium two weeks ago.
The prospect of overturning a 2-0 deficit at the Nou Camp will not be an attractive one for Manuel Pellegrini’s men, although if there’s a team capable of plucking victory from the depths of defeat, it’s certainly City’s Superstars.
Barcelona have been somewhat out of sorts of late, but their recent dip in form should not have them in a panic at the Nou Camp this evening.
Here are tonight’s confirmed starting line-ups for both sides…
El once del Barça: Valdés, Piqué, Fàbregas, Xavi, Iniesta, Messi, Neymar, Mascherano, Sergio, Alba, Alves #FCBlive
