Welcome to Etihad Stadium! And it's a giant game!
Manchester City hope to get a very famous European win as they face Barcelona in their second Champions League group stage matchup today, and this will be a very fun football match. Two amazing teams with amazing players and amazing coaches will play each other in an amazing stadium, and hopefully we get an amazing crowd as well.
Pep Guardiola wants to erase the image from that 4-0 loss two weeks ago at Camp Nou, and after breaking a winless streak at West Brom, the confidence is back in the Sky Blue side of Manchester. He'll have to create a perfect game plan to beat Barça, but he certainly can do it. Messi, Suárez and Neymar will come hungry for goals, but City have their firepower as well and could definitely get a great victory that we'll remember for ages.
This will be fun. Very fun.
