      Pep Guardiola returns to Barcelona aiming to get one over his former employers with Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday.

      PRE-MATCH FACTS

      -City and Barcelona have faced each other four times in a competitive environment and City are yet to beat the Blaugrana. The meetings came at the Round of 16 stages of both the 2013/14 and 2014/15 Champions League tournaments.

      -City boss Pep Guardiola will be returning to the club he represented as a player for 11 years and managed for four years.

      -If selected, goalkeeper Claudio Bravo will make his first appearance at the Camp Nou since swapping Barcelona for Manchester this summer.

      -City have won ten of their 13 matches across all competitions this season while Barcelona have won nine of their twelve matches.

      -Sergio Aguero still requires two goals to overtake Francis Lee as City's sixth all-time leading goalscorer.

      -City will have to be wary of Lionel Messi, who is second in the list of all-time top goalscorers for the Champions League with 86 goals.

      Do you think Pep Guardiola will defeat his old team?

      Judging by City's recent slump,  i am compelled to believe a Barcelona victory would not be out of question. Barca however will most likely  be undone by their unreliable defence. Umtiti's presence should give us a needed layer of security.

      For what it's worth, this will be Umtiti's biggest test so far.
