Pep Guardiola

There are mouthwatering Champions League ties and then there's this. Pep Guardiola returns to the Camp Nou for the first time on the opposition benches as he brings his Bayern Munich side to his former hunting ground.
Guardiola  amassed a record 14 titles in his time as Barcelona manager but he's unlikely to allow nostalgia to cloud his judgement this evening as he looks for a result to take back to Munich in six days time. His Bayern side have suffered a poor run in terms of injuries so will his makeshift back four be able to cope with the threat of Suarez, Messi and Neymar?
All will be revealed at 9.30pm
