    Man City vs Barcelona

    This will be the first competitive meeting between these two sides.

    Barcelona are winless in their last five away games against English sides in the Champions League (2 draws, 3 defeats).

    This is the first season in which Manchester City have managed to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League.

    Barcelona, meanwhile, have reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in each of the last six seasons, the longest run in the competition.

    Manchester City have won their last four Champions League games, the best current run.

    Manchester City’s games are the most prolific in the Champions League this season: they’ve produced 28 goals (18 for, 10 against). Their last three games alone have produced 18 goals.

    Manchester City have never failed to score at home in the Champions League (9 games). They’ve only lost one of those games (1-3 v Bayern Munich on 2 October 2013).

    Barcelona have only won one of their last eight games in the knockout stages of the Champions League (4-0 v AC Milan in last season’s last 16 stage).

    Barcelona have failed to win any of their last five away games in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

    Manuel Pellegrini won four of his 18 managerial encounters with Barcelona in La Liga.

    Alvaro Negredo has scored five goals in three Champions League games at home this season.

    Lionel Messi (65 goals) is only six goals away from equalling Raul’s Champions League goalscoring record (71 goals). He’s netted six goals in only three games this season.
