Barcelona played better in the first half
Guardiola has his victory over Barcelona. Manchester City manage to overcome a difficult situation after an early Messi goal and played better in the second half. De Bruyne and Aguero were so dangerous in the counter-attacks, but it was Gundogan who showed clinical eye in front of goal with two good goals.
Barcelona scored first. It was Messi who got the ball, gave it to Neymar in the counter and then just needed to wait for the ball to come back and beat Willy Caballero with his left foot.
Manchester City equalized with a goal from Gundogan. Sergi Roberto made a mistake in the build up and City didn't forgive this time. There finished Barcelona's dominance. It was 40 minutes for the scarlet and blues and the final 50 for the English team.
In the second half Kevin de Bruyne did an amazing performance, scoring the second goal with a free-kick and leading his team to the victory. Gundogan scored the 3-1 after an assist from Navas.
City beat Barcelona in their sixth match against the Catalans. They had lost the previous 5.
