Enrique Says No Favourite In Barcelona, Man City Clash

Barcelona are not clear favourites to beat Manchester City and reach the Champions League quarter-finals, says coach Luis Enrique.
The Catalan club are aiming to reach the last eight for a ninth straight season, while City have never gone beyond the last 16.
“I don’t think there is a favourite,” said Enrique, ahead of Tuesday’s first leg at Etihad Stadium.
Barca beat City 4-1 on aggregate at the same stage last season.
Enrique said: “It is dangerous to speak of favourites in the Champions League, you have to demonstrate yourself on the field.”
Midfielder Samir Nasri admitted City respected Barcelona “too much” last year and “were not experienced enough to compete”.
But captain Vincent Kompany said Tuesday’s opponents had “nothing new to worry us”.
