Barcelona host Manchester City in matchday three of UEFA Champions League this evening, as Guardiola returns to the club where he made his name.
The clubs met for the first time in a competitive fixture in the 2013/14 round of 16, where Barcelona won 2-0 in England with Lionel Messi and Dani Alves scoring, and that pair struck again in a 2-1 victory back at the Camp Nou, either side of Vincent Kompany’s goal.
Barcelona prevailed again at the same stage in 2014/15. In Manchester, Luis Suárez scored twice in a 2-1 win in which Sergio Agüero also found the net. Back in Barcelona, Ivan Rakiti got the only goal and Marc-André ter Stegen saved an Agüero spot kick.
