A man down and behind to a Messi Penalty.
It was only a matter of time before the pressure – which City had so bravely absorbed – eventually got the better of them.

Barcelona showed glimpses of being back to their “Pep” best and were irresistible at times.
One of the stand-out performances was full-back Daniel Alves. The Brazilian is well known for his attack-minded approach and unparalleled engine as he motors up and down the right flank.
Alves was rewarded for his impressive display with a goal in the 90th minute at the Etihad Stadium
An uphill challenge now faces City when they travel to the Camp Nou in a couple of weeks.
Barca are back!
