It may not have been a familiar seat for the managerial great, but Sir Alex Ferguson surely would have enjoyed the result as Barcelona beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad.

The former United boss was in the crowd last night as he continued his Champions League tour - last week he was at the Parc des Princes to see Chelsea draw with Paris Saint-Germain.

Luis Suarez scored twice in the opening 30 minutes as Barcelona took a firm hold of the tie, but City are still in it thanks to a Sergio Aguero goal and a late penalty blunder by Lionel Messi.

Former Manchester United players Ryan Giggs, currently Louis van Gaal's assistant, and Nicky Butt were in the crowd, sitting next to Liverpool pair Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana.
