Passed through the lines well and won the free­kick clev­erly for De Bruyne’s goal. Ser­gio Aguero 8/10 Why didn’t he start at the Nou Camp? Aguero was ex­cep­tional as al­ways and never gave Barca a mo­ment to rest.

BARCELONA

Marc-Andre ter Ste­gen 6/10 His range of pass­ing was inch per­fect through­out but could be blamed for his po­si­tion­ing on De Bruyne’s free­kick. Sergi Roberto 4/10 Played a blind pass to al­low City to equalise and al­most re­peated the mis­take in the sec­ond half. Javier Mascher­ano 5/10

5/10 Strug­gled to stem City’s at­tack when they broke and was taken on too eas­ily by Aguero at times. Andre Gomes 5/10 Re­placed the in­jured Ini­esta and missed a fan­tas­tic chance to equalise when he thumped the ball against the bar. Lionel Messi 7/10 His work for the open­ing goal was ge­nius as he started and finished a sub­lime counter at­tack. Luis Suarez 6/10 Had a num­ber of chances through­out and should have found the net with at least one of them. Ney­mar 5/10 Did re­ally well for the open­ing goal but faded as the game went on.
