So, it's all come down to this. 90 minutes to decide the fate of two of Europe's biggest clubs -- a chance for a season to be defined in just one night. Failure to progress could signal a disaster for either club and as such, the pressure is on. FC Barcelona might have the Copa del Rey and La Liga title races to fall back on, but surrendering a commanding first-leg lead to be knocked out tonight is unthinkable and would prompt an inquisition of epic proportions from the media, and indeed the fanbase as a whole.

Manchester City on the other hand look to be all but out of the title race in the Premier League after a series of poor results against less than stellar opposition. They're out of the FA Cup. They didn't win the League Cup; a loss tonight almost seals a season without a trophy, and for the amount of money they have pumped into the club that is inexcusable. Manuel Pellegrini is under-pressure, and while he assured us that his immediate future is not in jeopardy irrespective of the result tonight, this tie will have a huge say in whether he is kept on for the new season.

Therein lies the $64,000 question: can Manuel Pellegrini engineer an impressive European comeback to overcome this first-leg deficit, or will FC Barcelona continue their march towards the treble by securing their progression?
