Barcelona are ahead of a golden opportunity to qualify for the next round of the Champions League, a necessary step to continue to challenge for the treble this season. While the favourable 1-2 win achieved at the Etihad Stadium in the away match does give the Catalans the edge, not taking the game with the seriousness it deserves would be a huge mistake.

As explained in my Manchester City prematch article, nothing but qualification for the next round will do. Cules are right to expect a squad with the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez to perform under pressure and overcome the challenge that Manuel Pellegrini's team are likely to bring.
