Manchester City v Barcelona highlights

Barcelona beat Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester tonight to leave themselves with more than one foot in the quarter finals.  A converted penalty from Lionel Messi and an injury time goal from Dani Alves secured the win for the Catalans.

City’s cause wasn’t helped by centre back Martin Demichelis being sent off after he took down Lionel Messi for the penalty.  Barcelona keep the ball better than anybody, getting the ball of them with a man less makes for a difficult evening.

City now need to score at least twice in Barcelona in the second leg to have any chance of progressing.  It is a daunting task.
