Barca make mockery of crisis talk with City rout

Reuters and AFP, MANCHESTER, England

Of more immediate concern to Pellegrini, rather than where he watches the game from, will be to devise a way City can turn the tie around after conceding two goals at home without scoring themselves.

One blessing in disguise is that he will not be able to play Demichelis, because the defender will be banned for the second leg.

Despite the setback, Pellegrini’s side have had a superb season and are still in contention for an English treble of Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup trophies.

City should have Argentine striker Sergio Aguero back for the second leg, but even that may well be a case of too little, too late.
