Pep Guardiola who was once the guardian angel for Barca returns to Camp Nou as their biggest nemesis as The Citizens takes on FC Barcelona in Champions League’s group stage fixture this Wednesday.
This is Guardiola’s second visit since departing on a sabbatical in early 2013; the first being with Bayern Munich in 2015 which ended badly for him with an aggregate 6-2 defeat.
The founder of the tiki-taka movement can be expected to sport just three players in the back; the same tactic he employed in a match against Everton on 15th October. This move can be detrimental to their success against the top-notch MSN (Messi, Suarez & Neymar).
Another player set to make a return to his old club is Claudio Bravo, whose relationship with Catalonia ended on a sour note.
While Barca stands firmly on top of the table, their recent form suggests otherwise; they have looked painfully inconsistent this season under the leadership of Luis Enrique and will look to emulate their legendary form of 2014-15 season which won them the treble
Can Guardiola turn things around this time, or will the Catalonia club prove that they are better off without the Spaniard?
