Manchester City v Barcelona
When: Tuesday, February 18, 2014
Where: Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England
Last meeting: None
Arguably the tie of the round pits four-time European champions Barcelona against in-form Manchester City, with the first leg taking place in Manchester this week.
La Liga champions Barcelona’s competition pedigree is unquestionable, and they dominated Group H to finish top in December. City, meanwhile, are unbeaten in Europe since a 3-1 defeat by Bayern Munich in October and are currently the second-top scorers in the competition so far with 18.
When it comes to current form, it’s hard to choose between the two: The Catalan club have lost just once in 18 matches, while City have lost just twice at their Etihad Stadium all season.
