Lionel Messi and company will be heading to Manchester once more after City drew Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League.
In a repeat of last season’s draw, Manuel Pellegrini’s men will welcome the Catalan club to The Etihad in February before travelling to the Nou Camp in March.
Messi was inspirational for Barcelona in both of those games, winning 2-0 in Manchester before wrapping it up in Spain with a 2-1 win to secure a comfortable 4-1 victory over two legs.
Here is the reaction of City fans after drawing the Spanish giants:
Man City with Aguero will beat Barcelona. Home and Away
