The UEFA Champions League tournament has returned and Manchester City is hosting Barcelona in the first leg of the round of 16. This match up might be the toughest match up in this round, at least according to Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino.
“For the last six seasons Barcelona have made it to the semi-finals and the fans are used to that,” Martino said, via Sky Sports. ”It will be difficult to understand if we don’t go through but it is the tightest tie of all.”
Martino was also quick to praise the City team.
“I don’t think City are a mini-Barcelona or a mini any team. I think they are one of the greatest teams in the world.
“They have great Spanish players like (Jesus) Navas and (David) Silva, but it is not only Spanish players. They have great players from all over the world like (Yaya) Toure, (Sergio) Aguero and Fernandinho.”
