24 Feb Man City v F.C.B
As the UEFA Champions League enters the round of the sweet sixteen, the teams are being whittled down to the cream of the crop. Today Tuesday February 24th 2015 at 20:45 the dynamo English team Manchester City will play the first leg against the Spanish powerhouse Barcelona FC at the Etihad Stadium. This time last year Barcelona derailed Manchester city with a 2-0 win in the round of 16, and are looking for a repeat scenario that will bring them to their eight straight Champions League quarter-final. Before losing on Saturday 1-0 to Malaga, Barcelona was on a whopping 11 consecutive winning streak in all competitions, showing leadership, teamwork and a hunger to win. On the other hand, although Yaya Touré is still not able to play due to his sanction from expulsion at CSKA Moscow, the English team also feels fit and ready to compete. Confidence is seen in the players and Man City striker Sergio Aguero told the club website that “This is a new game and we’re not the same as we were last season and they aren’t, either”. Watch these two football titans battle it out for the prestige of making it to the next round of Champions League. And where better to do that than Flaherty’s Irish Bar Barcelona?
The second leg of the round of 16 will be played at Camp Nou Wednesday March 18th 2015 at 20:45.
