The La Liga champions face their Premier League opponents in the second leg of their round-of-16 tie at Camp Nou as huge favourites to make it through to the last eight of Europe’s premier club competition after winning the first encounter 2-0 at Eastlands in February.
And it was in that first encounter that the little Argentina international’s contribution proved decisive once again after the front man was brought down by compatriot and City centre-back Martin Demichelis when clean through on goal early in the second half in what turned out to be a match-changing incident.
Messi himself then stepped up to put away the resulting spot kick, while the City central defender saw red for his actions.
