We limited them to a couple of half chances and if DeMichelles hadn't been a mentalist and just let the dude score, we would've got something out of that.
Please, someone take Dzeko. -_-
Yeah I never know why defenders nearly always take the player out when they know they are going to be sent off. I guess he just thought he could get the ball. I thought Kompany's moan after the match was rather funny. You would think the guy had never played in the Champions League before, everybody knows that refs blow for more stuff in the Champions League.
Overall I think Barcalona showed City a lot of respect and even after they scored the first goal they were far too passive and looked like they were happy to go home with the 1-0. At times it seemed like Alves was the only player willing to attack. They certainly don't look like the world beaters they used to under Guardiola, despite the masses of possession they barely troubled Hart and City were hardly ever called on to do some last ditch defending. If it had remained at 1-0 I would have given City a chance at the Camp Nou.
