Barcelona 2 Manchester City 1 - player ratings: Lionel Messi top dog again but which City player got closest?
All the player ratings from the Nou Camp
Thursday 13 March 2014
Manchester City tried their best to come through a seemingly impossible task against Barcelona to reach the quarter finals of the Champions League but ended up well beaten, so how did each player do on the night?
Sergio Aguero only had a handful of touches in the first half and was replaced by Edin Dzeko at half time.
It was a tale of two centre backs for Manuel Pellegrini's side as Vincent Kompany put in City's best performance on the night and was rewarded with a goal whereas Joleon Lescott will be having Messi filled nightmares for days.
The Argentine genius was superb once again but Neymar and Xavi also put in quality shifts and ensured Barcelona a place in the quarter finals.
