Barcelona took a big step towards the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 2-1 win over Manchester City at the Etihad on Tuesday.

The Blaugranas, who suffered a surprising loss to Malaga in La Liga at the weekend, appeared to regain their confidence as Uruguay forward Luis Suarez scored a brace before Sergio Aguero pulled one back for the hosts in the 69th minute.

Elsewhere Juventus will take a 1 goal advantage into the second leg after beating Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in Italy.

Former Manchester United forward Carlos Tevez opened the scoring in the 13th minute but Jurgen Klopp’s men equalised 5 minutes later thanks to Marco Reus.

Alvaro Morata eventually sealed the win just before half time with both sides meeting again on March 18.
