The hosts from Barcelona are sitting top of Group C table coming into this fixture, having won both games played in the competition to date. Head coach Luis Enrique’s tutored side started with what should be their easiest home match of the European campaign against Brendan Rogers’ Celtic and so it proved to be, with a 7–0 trashing of the Scottish champions. Barcelona followed this up with a narrow 2–1 away victory over Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany, coming back from a goal down to win the game. As regards Barca’s injury news, the comeback of the skipper Lionel Messi at the weekend went according to plan, but Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba are still sidelined.
Meanwhile, Manchester City were comfortable winners in their group opener, overcoming Monchengladbach 4–0 at home turf, thanks to goals from Sergio Aguero and Kelechi Iheanacho. However, Pep Guardiola’s side struggled when they travelled to Scotland to take on Celtic and were happy to come away with a draw, having came from behind twice in the game, only to pull the score back to 3–3, which is how the match finished. As for the visitor’s squad update, such bug guns as, Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, and the City’s captain Vincent Kompany are all fit to play after making a comeback at the weekend’s match against Spurs.
