FC Barcelona warmed up for this week's Champions League clash with Manchester City by thrashing La Liga opponents Rayo Vallecano 6-0 this weekend. Messi scored twice, and Neymar returned from injury, scoring once in his brief stint on the pitch. All the Spanish talking heads are adamant that Barcelona will prevail and move on to the last eight teams. The English writers and commentators are certain that Manchester City are deserving of the semi-final place. I cannot see that happening. Manchester City attack as a team, throwing as many as seven players forward at one time. Barcelona will thrive in that system as it opens up the defense for the speedy, and quick passing, counter attacks they are renown for. Should they give Messi and Neymar room, they will pay dearly. I envision a long game for Manchester City, as they are worn down by the possession football, and the sheer speed of the counter attack. Maybe even a red card will be shown, as their frustration mounts.
