UEFA Champions League: FC Barcelona Drawn with Manchester City in Round of 16

Harold Cunningham

The UEFA Champions League Round of 16 is completed and it has determined that FC Barcelona will have to overcome a tall task in order to continue to contend for the most prestigious club trophy. Manchester City, arguably the strongest unseeded team in the draw, will be Barcelona's opponent. Both teams are loaded with talent and this tie could be one of the best Round of 16 match-ups in recent history.

Both sides are loaded with talent up front, but with both teams struggling on the defensive side of the ball we could be in for a goal fest. The first leg will be played on 18 February at Etihad Stadium with the return leg being played at the Camp Nou on 12 March 2014.

The tie will have a familiar feeling for plenty of City players as several of them have faced Barcelona before, including Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas. But to no one will this feel more special than Yaya Toure who wore Barcelona colors for three seasons before joining the Premier League club.

Prepare yourselves Cúles, this one is going to be tough.
