The UEFA Champions League roars back into action Tuesday with a high-caliber clash at the Etihad: Manchester City host Barcelona (live, Tuesday, FOX Sports 1, 2 p.m. ET) in one of the most eagerly-awaited fixtures of the Round of 16. It is a critical test for both clubs and their managers, and with change swirling in the air, it would be foolhardy for any to make a prediction.
Manchester City enter the match on the back of sweeping aside title rivals Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup. It was a surprisingly routine win given that the Blues had skunked City just twelve days prior in one of the games of the year. Yet, in spite of being without Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho, City did fall into the same trap. It took them only a quarter of an hour to seize the game by the scruff, and from thereon out, it was routine. via | FOX Sports on MSN
