Pep Guardiola will be dreading his return to Camp Nou this week. Manchester City are in a bit of crisis right now and the Etihad outfit have failed to win any of their last three matches in all competitions. The last away game they played was against Tottenham earlier this month and they were beaten 2-0. Guardiola’s men struggled to cope with the pressing from Spurs back then.
The Premier League giants will be up against a much better side away from home on Wednesday and Barcelona are better at pressing as well. City missed two penalties during their 1-1 draw against Everton on Saturday and they will be completely devoid of confidence heading into this game. Captain Vincent Kompany and right-back Bacary Sagna are the only injury worries for Pep Guardiola at the moment.
Barcelona have an impressive head t0 head record against Manchester City. Manchester City have failed to win any of their last three matches and have conceded 6 times. Barcelona have scored 9 goals in their last 2 Champions League games. A high scoring game is likely here. Despite their current form and record against Barcelona, they have lost just once in their last 11 outings in Europe.
