Manchester City face a daunting task on Wednesday when they head to the Camp Nou having to overturn a 2 goal deficit to continue their run in the Champions League.

Argentina’s Sergio Aguero, who missed the first leg, should be in the starting line-up while Joleon Lescott is likely to come in for the suspended Martin Demichelis.

The Blaugranas are close to full strength and will be looking to give their fans something to cheer about after a surprising 1-0 defeat at Valladolid at the weekend left them four points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid.

Elsewhere Bayer Leverkusen have a mountain to climb after their woeful first-leg performance against PSG on home soil.

Sami Hyypia’s men were unable to trouble the French side and eventually lost 4-0 with the in-form Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring a brace of goals.

The visitors will be without the injured Lars Bender and Jens Hegeler while centre-back Emir Spahic will miss out after being sent off in the first leg.
