Manchester City defender had just been praised for an excellent first-half display, too…
Lionel Messi subsequently converted the stonewall penalty…
Messi one-on-one with Martin Demichelis. Pretty much the one thing City didn’t want to happen.

That’s the Demichelis I know.

Partial standing ovation for Demichelis after his red card for bringing down Messi. Bit of a mis-match that one.

Demichelis. It was just f****** predictable.

The disaster waiting to happen just happened. Demichelis out of the second leg.

Demichelis off, brought down Messi. Poor defending. Penalty. Messi v Hart. Messi wins. 1-0 to #fcb. (nb why didn't Lescott start)
