NOU CAMP: FC Barcelona's home

Everything you need to know about our Champions League opponents, FC Barcelona...

After falling at the quarter-final stage to beaten finalists Atletico Madrid last season, Enrique’s Barcelona have made several summer changes and will be looking to reclaim the trophy they have won five times, with the last in 2015.

2015/16 Champions League top scorer

Luis Suarez (8 goals)

2015/16 league position 

1st in La Liga

Manager

Luis Enrique – Winning the treble in his first season as coach of the Spanish giants was major success for the man who made over 200 playing appearances for the club.

Stadium

Nou Camp. The 99,000 capacity is seen as a cathedral of football but it’s not been a great stomping ground for the Blues.

City links

Pep Guardiola, Txiki Begiristain and Ferran Soriano all worked together at Barcelona during arguably the Catalonian’s most successful period ever. Current Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez played at City between 2011-13. As well as this, Claudio Bravo has just joined City from FC Barcelona.

Previous meetings

The teams have been drawn together twice in the Round of 16. In 2013/14, Barcelona won 2-0 and 2-1 in the two legs. In 2014/15, Barcelona again won both legs – 2-1 at the Etihad and 1-0 in Spain.
