UEFA Champions League : Manchester City vs FC Barcelona – Preview

Manchester City were humiliated by Barcelona in their 4-0 defeat when they visit Camp Nou for the matchday-3 fixture. Now they have a chance to seek revenge in the space of two weeks when the teams meet again at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday, 1st November 2016.

Lionel Messi was the start of the show in the matchday 3 clash between the two sides on 19th October. The Argentine maestro scored the first three goals for this team with Neymar adding the icing to the cake in the final minute of the match. The Brazilian also missed a penalty in the 87th minute.

The first leg clash between the two sides also saw two sending offs. Man City goal-keeper Claudio Bravo was sent-off in the 53rd minute for alleged foul outside the penalty area when the score was 1-0. While Barcelona’s French defender Jeremy Mathieu picked up two yellow cards and received his matching orders in the 73rd minute.

Barcelona remain top of the group with three wins from their three matches, while City are second with 4 points. The third placed Monchengladbach has 3 points and could go second if they manage to defeat Celtic in their matchday 4 fixture. The pressure is surely on Manchester City.
