(Video) Claudio Bravo pulls off super double-save to deny Barcelona second

Manchester City threatened to get back into their showdown with Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night, but Claudio Bravo was forced into this crucial save.

The Chilean shot-stopper was unable to prevent Lionel Messi from giving the hosts the lead, but he was called into action when the Barcelona ace sent Luis Suarez through.

Suarez saw his effort initially blocked by Bravo before he had to remain alert and regather himself to prevent the ball from looping over him and into the back of the net.

It may yet turn out to be a decisive save with the visitors hoping to get back into the encounter after the interval, although Pep Guardiola will be disappointed that his side haven’t got on the scoresheet already.

John Stones and Ilkay Gundogan had two great opportunities to grab an equaliser, but neither were able to convert with a frustrated City boss left to consider what might have been on the sidelines.
