Manchester City vs. Barcelona: Tactical Preview of Champions League Game | Bleacher Report


Tuesday sees Manchester City and Barcelona lock horns in one of the most enticing UEFA Champions League encounters on offer in the round of 16. It’s a rematch of last year’s bout, when Manuel Pellegrini’s men fell to a delightful Lionel Messi-led outfit in disappointing circumstances.

Per UEFA, Yaya Toure sees out the final match of his three-game suspension, while Edin Dzeko, Sergio Aguero, Pablo Zabaleta and Gael Clichy are all a booking away from a ban.

That may prompt Pellegrini to play Bacary Sagna, who is a better one-on-one defender than Zabaleta, at right-back to deal with Jordi Alba, but Clichy will likely get the nod over Aleksandar Kolarov due to his recovery pace. via | Bleacher Report
