Can Aguero spearhead City to an historic victory?
Here’s the side we think City boss Manuel Pellegrini could start with tonight against Barcelona at the Nou Camp…
GK) Joe Hart
Of course, Hart will start between the sticks for City barring a late injury.
DR) Pablo Zabaleta
The Argentine right-back is one of the first names on the team sheet, but will have to be careful to tame his attacking instincts with Pedro or Neymar possibly starting down Barcelona’s left.
DC) Vincent Kompany
City’s captain put in a heroic display during the first leg, but it wasn’t enough to stop his side falling to a 2-0 defeat. He’ll know if his side have any chance of progression, he’ll have to play even better tonight.
DC) Joleon Lescott
Martin Demichelis is suspended after he was sent off for fouling Lionel Messi in the first leg, meaning with Matija Nastasic also rated as doubtful, Pellegrini has little choice but to deploy Lescott alongside Kompany. He has the unenviable task of dealing with the Argentine sensation.
DL) Aleksandar Kolarov
Pellegrini could also select Clichy on the left of the back four, but we think he’ll go with the Serbian who offers a more direct counter attacking option down the flank.
