The Man City XI to beat Barcelona
Pep Guardiola will be keen to exasperate revenge on former club Barcelona this Tuesday by beating the Catalan giants at the Etihad Stadium. City were humiliated in Spain just a fortnight ago when the Blues suffered a comprehensive 4-0 defeat.
Last weekend witnessed Manchester City end a troublesome period by securing a 0-4 victory over West Brom. However, Guardiola faces a different prospect as he takes on the world-class attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.
Barcelona have suffered mixed fortunes this campaign, and the injury-struck squad travel to Manchester hopeful of ensuring their 100% competitive winning record over City.
The progression undertook since Guardiola’s reign commenced is already evident, but if he is to silence all his doubters and critics, he must guide City to another great European scalp in the Champions League.
For the Blues to have any chance of victory, it’s imperative Guardiola chooses the right starting line-up.
