Barça managed to win the Champions League Round of 16 first-leg match 

Luis Suárez Manchester

Great first half by Barça, they pressured very well against City and scored two goals at the first half. However, the second half was as not as good, for Manchester City went on willing to set the match back. The home team lost one player after he was sent off and apparently Barça should had the advantage but they couldn't manage to do it. Messi even missed a penalty at the end of the second half.
