The most successful manager in the history of FC Barcelona will be coming back to his old stomping ground this week, as Pep Guardiola brings his new club Manchester City to the Nou Camp for the first of two back to back group games in the Champions League.
The former boss is under no illusion about the size of the task facing Man City either, as he has described his former club as a machine and even though his new side is packed with talents like David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero, Pep has said that his players should expect to have less possession of the ball.
Being at home and with a brilliant European record Barcelona were already strong favourites for the match on Wednesday, but with the IBTimes reporting that the Barca boss Luis Enrique has been handed a double injury boost with both first choice full backs Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto back in training, the chances of City causing an upset have become even smaller.
So with Lionel Messi, Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti having made their own returns from injury at the weekend, the odds being offered on Barca will not be good so if you are going to have a flutter it might be worth looking for a deal such as the no deposit betting offers available by some bookies.
Barca fans know about Pep as well though, so maybe something like both teams to score or the game to have a lot of goals is the way to go. It does look like it is going to be a cracker of a game, so good luck and enjoy!
