Manchester City vs Barcelona starting line-ups

Manchester City and Barcelona are set to square off in Champions League action this afternoon. Both squads have revealed their starting line ups.


As expected, Manchester City will be without top scorer Sergio Aguero.

“He is not in the squad list,” Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini said, via ESPN FC. “We will see if he can be fit on Saturday, but maybe that is also difficult.”

Just about ever player Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino praised is in the line up.

“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,” Martino said. “They have great players from all over the world like (Yaya) Toure, (Sergio) Aguero and Fernandinho.”
