Enrique, right and Guardiola

PEP Guardiola’s return to Barcelona, the club where he won the Champions League as both player and manager (twice) makes today’s clash with Machester City the tie of the season so far.

Barcelona have won 12 straight Champions League games at home and with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all primed to play.

Crucially for City, playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and his Nigerian sidekick, Kelechi Iheanacho will be at full fitness too after two draws and a defeat in the last three games.

Captain Vincent Kompany also looks set for a start. Gerard Pique, in the news this week for his controversial role in Spain’s outfit and his ambitions to be Barcelona president, has also scored three goals in the last three games. Guardiola’s men drew with Everton at the weekend.
