Pep Guardiola will return to Camp Nou to face his former club as Machester City battle Barcelona in a top-class friendly match on Wednesday evening.

The encounter was arranged to raise money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research after former Blaraguna goalkeeper Juan Carlos Unzue who previously worked under Premier League winning manager was diagnosed with the disease.

Barcelona are coming into this encounter after earning their first win of the season with a 4-1 win over Real Sociedad last Sunday, while Manchester City comes from behind to hold Newcastle United to a 3-3 scored draw at Saint James Park.

IMPORTANT STATS:

BARCELONA

Xavi Hernadez will be facing his former boss Guardiola for the first time on the touchline as a coach but Barcelona have an excellent record against Manchester City after the La Liga outfit triumphed 5 times in their six meetings.

MANCHESTER CITY

Premier League defending champions have managed only one victory against the Catalan giant as the Cityzen aiming cut the deficit on Wednesday night at Nou Camp.

FCNAIJA PREDICTION:

These are arguably two of the most talented European squads on paper but given that this game does not count for anything Fcnaija tipster tipped both sides to score and over 2.5 goal in the encounter.
