Barcelona were unplayable during their first meeting this season and the Spanish champions picked up a 4-0 win over Pep Guardiola‘s side at Camp Nou.
Manchester City have been very inconsistent lately and despite their 4-0 win over West Brom during the weekend, they will need to be very careful against Barcelona. The win over the Baggies was City’s first in six matches. The Premier League side had conceded 9 goals in 5 matches before keeping a clean sheet against West Brom.
This is a vital match for City. They are just one point ahead of Gladbach in the standings and the Germans could overtake them if they lose again.
It will be interesting to see how Guardiola sets up for this game. His men were battered by Barcelona earlier this season and the world class manager might need to change his approach this time.
