Well they had two seasons together with a poor coach in two ridiculously tough groups. Last year for example with Napoli ( who outplayed the team who will later be the champ- Chelsea, and with Bayern who made it to the final ) and this year with Madrid and Dortmund who will likely make the semi-finals.
So yeah..

And lol if you think Barca will lose to PSG at the Camp, then you dont really know about crap about footbal.

Even without Messi ( who should make it as sub at least ) they should easily dominate PSG.

And I'm sure you said the same to Chelsea fans last year. You can lose while dominating.

Of course i did. I said to Inter fans in 2010 too. And to United fans in 2008. Because thats what i do. Im a fan of a team that even when we lose we are the better side. I also said that in 2006, 2009, 2011 and guess what? We won. And we will this year again.

City desperately needs a winger, Silva and Nasri always drift inside and Nasri isn't very good anyway. He shouldn't be allowed start for a Team with Citys ambitions.
Yaya Toure became very overrated in recent years, he's good offensively great passer but considering his physical presence he should be much better on the defensive end.

So why exactly are you telling the guy he knows nothing about football if the result he posited is possible?

Barca is not always the better side when they lose or even when they win. we've outplayed them at various points this year, as have teams like Valencia and Sociedad during their golden period.

The notion that Barca is never outplayed is merely one of the clubs conceited "holier than thou" atmosphere.

So yeah..
And yet, they some how got shit on, blowing a 3-1 advantage the next game. I guess losing=outplaying these days.

You are just itching to jump on the City bandwagon. They aren't that good. Joe Hart screwed up again last night, he was nowhere close to punching the ball and left his goal wideopen. Yaya is pretty good, not a top 10 midfielder in the world.

If we are talking about box to box midfielders with defensive prowess there is no better than Yaya Toure.

Arturo Vidal is better than Yaya especially defensively.

i agree that yaya is not of the best, he is still great thought, but he just fits good city, has a lots of space... and thats one of the reasons why city arent that good... because you just dont give yaya a lot of space... as a barca fan i know this.

I think Vidal is there.

I find it difficult to label Yaya a box to box midfielder when he's become so damn lazy on the defensive side and Mancini always switches him to AM.

Vidal is up there, but the list pretty much ends with those two.
