Barcelona v Man City - Wednesday 19:45, BT Sport 2
What a game we have in store here as Pep returns to the Nou Camp for the biggest match in Gameweek 3 of the Champions League. After stuttering in Glasgow, City will have to take at least four points from their two games against Barca if they are to top the group and avoid the big boys in the Last 16. Both of these sides have stuttered a bit in recent weeks. The Catalans have won just three of their last six in La Liga while City have picked up just one point in their last two in the Prem.
Barcelona have won all 12 of their Champions League home games since Luis Enrique took over in 2014/15, leading at the break in nine of these victories and scoring 36 goals whilst conceding just six. They’ve beaten the likes of PSG, Bayern, Atletico and Man City themselves in that time and with that in mind there’s an argument that they’re too big a price to win at 1.57 with Betfred.
We’ve got Barca ranked as the best team in Europe, though their lead over Madrid and Bayern is minimal, and if history repeats itself it could be a long night for the Citizens. English teams have lost 12 of their 20 trips to number one-ranked sides in this competition, though they netted in eight of the games. Back Barca to Win with both teams scoring at 2.70 with Hills.Bet £10 get £20
