Manchester City have it all to do this evening as they head into their Champions League second leg against Barcelona.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side are up against it, 2-0 down and still recovering from the shock of an FA Cup exit at the hands of Wigan Athletic last weekend.

City have no choice but to go after the game in the back yard of a side which has seen its La Liga lead slip to arch rivals Barcelona.

City can’t allow the match to settle into a cagey affair as Barca could simply choose to play possession football and protect their lead, which they’re the best in the world at.
