Our football match prediction:
Barcelona rolled over Celtic in the opening match of their Champions League campaign and the Catalan giants came from behind to beat Borussia M’gladbach in their second group game in the elite competition. The Catalan giants returned to winning ways in La Liga at the weekend as well, with the team beating Deportivo La Coruna 4-0 at their Camp Nou and they are high on confidence ahead of the Champions League derby against Manchester City. Leo Messi is a major doubt, but the likes of Luis Suarez and Neymar are likely to make life difficult for the opposition defenders in Wednesday’s football match. The Citizens head into the game following a 1-1 draw with Everton, but you should bear in mind that they missed two penalties in the Premier League game. Man City struggle on the travels and considering that they conceded three goals in the draw with Celtic in their previous away game in the Champions League, we predict that Barca will emerge triumphant in the Camp Nou showdown.
