What’s in stake for Barcelona against Manchester City

After that masterclass display and 0-2 win in the Ethiad roughly 3 weeks ago, we’ll get to see another Barcelona vs Manchester City, this time counting for the second leg of the UEFA Champions League last-16 round. The two teams are not exactly in the peak of their form right now, but Barça‘s recent situation might actually be a more dramatic than Man City‘s. The Blaugrana lost two of their last 3 games for La Liga and with that, they’ve seen Real Madrid ascending to the top of the league and leaving them 4 points behind.

Tato Martino‘s men seem to have lost the hunger to win and when that happens, even less talented teams seem to be capable of edging Barça with more or less difficulties. This Wednesday night, Barcelona will lock horns with Manchester City at the Camp Nou, and the English side is anxious to redeem themselves from the very poor performance they pulled out in the first leg played at home. Their main sin has been to pay too much respect for Barcelona, which ended up costing them the game and probably most of their chances of still going through into the competition’s quarter-finals. You can watch Barça vs Man City live this Wednesday night on Sky Sports 1 in the United Kingdom, and online through several live stream links available on Ronaldo7.net.

Turning over a 2-goal deficit at the Camp Nou and doing it on a knock-stage in the UEFA Champions League might seem like an herculean task to many of us. Nevertheless, Man City certainly have hordes of talent in their ranks and even though they will also step on to the Camp Nou tomorrow night slightly wounded from their recent loss and elimination in the FA Cup against Wigan, they’ll have nothing to lose. Barça‘s game has been quite messy over the past months and if Manchester City does manage to score an early goal, we might very well witness a shocking outcome at the end of the night.

It’s hard to preview what exactly will happen in Barcelona after the season, but one thing is certain by now: a lot will change! The club has recently gone through a series of very difficult situations, including the President’s Sandro Rosell resignation after the big controversy over Neymar‘s transfer and contract irregularities. Andrés Iniesta has also lost his unborn son just last week, while Lionel Messi seems to be playing his worst football since he started accumulating FIFA Ballon d’Ors roughly 5 years ago. In the other hand and despite the weekend upset against Wigan, Manchester City could end up having the psychological edge during the game, especially if things don’t start going Barça‘s way in the first 20 minutes of the game. Sergio Aguero is back and together with David Silva, Nasri, Touré and company, they have what it takes to strike the final blow in Barça‘s hopes this season and turn their life into a nightmare.

Probable line-ups for Barcelona vs Man City (March 12, 2014): UEFA Champions League Round of 16, 2nd leg:

Barcelona: Valdés; Jordi Alba, Mascherano, Piqué, Daniel Alves; Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta; Neymar, Lionel Messi and Alexis Sánchez.

Manchester City: Joe Hart; Zabaleta, Lescott, Vincent Kompany, Clichy; Fernandinho, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Samir Nasri; Sergio Aguero, Negredo.

Barcelona likelihood to go through: 85%

Man City likelihood to go through: 15%
