I'm guessing you won't give high ratings on this one...

So, yeah... That didn't go according to plan, did it?

Barcelona lost the first match in the Champions League group stage, suffering a bad defeat at the hands of Manchester City, who dominated the second half en route to a comeback 3-1 win, and Pep Guardiola and his men will be very proud of how hard they worked and how they played.

Luis Enrique and his men... well, they won't. Barça played a very poor match in every phase of the game, from the buildup play, to the passing, to the chance creation, to defensive transition; everything was bad, the game plan wasn't sound enough and after a great 30 minutes, the Blaugrana were overwhelmed by the City stars and will leave Etihad Stadium with a bad loss. The good news is Barça still lead Group C, and need just one point against Celtic or Borussia Mönchengladbach to advance to the knockout rounds.

It's all about Tuesday's game though, and we'd like to know how do you rate the Barça players' performances against City. Please fill out the attached form and use the comments section below to share your votes.
