The Catalans face Manuel Pellegrini’s side on Tuesday evening…
Barcelona star Gerard Pique believes that Lionel Messi is ready to lead the Catalan club to a victory against Manchester City on Tuesday night, reports the Sun.
The Nou Camp outfit travel to Manchester to play the Citizens on Tuesday evening, and they will be hoping to replicate their performance from last season. They beat the Sky Blues 2-0 at the Etihad in the same stage of the Champions League last year.
The 28-year-old said, “Leo is our big weapon. He’s the best player in the world and he will be leading us at City and helping us win. I hope our reaction against City is the same as we had after losing to Real Sociedad and we get very good results against them.”
Barca recently lost for the first time in 11 games against Malaga. They are still only second in La Liga despite the long winning streak, with Real Madrid continuing their unbelievable season at the top of the division.
