Fans fan watch the Manchester City vs. Barcelona football match as the teams face off in with the UEFA Champions League round of 16 on the line.
The match takes place Wednesday at 7:45 pm GMT from Barcelona.
After losing the first leg 2-0, Manchester City must win by two clear goals to avoid elimination. The team is trying to put behind the disappointment of losing out in the FA Cup against Wigan Athletic on Sunday, and they’ll have to do it without manager Manuel Pellegrini.
He received a two-match touchline ban from UEFA after criticizing referee Jonas Eriksson. Once the team arrives in the stadium he can have no contact, so Pellegrini will have to deliver his final pep talk to the Manchester City team the hotel before they leave.
Fans who watch the Manchester City vs. Barcelona football match live online will see a Barcelona team also dealing with some disappointing domestic losses, including a 1-0 defeat to Real Valladolid on Saturday.
FC Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino said he thinks his squad will be plenty motivated.
“We have talked a lot individually and as a group, but this is a different competition, we have a positive result behind us and we played well in Manchester,” he said. “I don’t think the players are not motivated. Every season the players know they have to fight to win a trophy – they know the club and they know what’s expected, so I don’t need to give them extra motivation. We made lots of mistakes against Valladolid and that isn’t normal for this team.”
