Manchester City face off against Barcelona in the Champions League once again, and Pellegrini's men will be hoping that they can go one better than last year and get past this stage of the competition. They consistently find themselves getting tough draws in Europe's top competition, but as the Premier League champions they also need to perform to a higher level too. Barcelona come into this week's game having lost on the weekend against Malaga, and they have been very inconsistent this season to date. Manchester City can't claim to be hitting their best every week, but they did hammer Newcastle on the weekend by 5-0, with David Silva looking in particularly good form, setting the scene for an exciting European tie.
