Barcelona's valuable 2-1 away against Manchester City was proof that they have what it takes to go all the way in this season's Champions League if fully focused on the task in hand. Reassuringly, the Blaugranas looked like a completely different team from the one that struggled to break Malaga's back-line and walked away with a deserved 1-0 home defeat in their last La Liga game.

While the return of Javier Mascherano and Ivan Rakitic to Luis Enrique's starting 11 brought back much-needed muscle,...

MANCHESTER, England -- For weeks he's been providing the service. On Tuesday, he suddenly provided the goals.

He arrived as the guy with the bad reputation, banned for another bite, following a previous suspension for racial abuse.

But Luis Suarez has been playing at Barcelona not only as if, just as he promised, it's been his personal ambition to do so for years and years but also as if he's a fan of the club.

Barcelona stay top as Juventus take advantage of Chelsea's slip

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop reveals his latest power rankings for this week which feature Barcelona on top despite a 1-nil loss to Malaga.
The ESPN FC crew discusses the potential backlash from a winter World Cup, why English teams aren't thriving in European competition and whether Barcelona and Real Madrid will meet in the Champions League final.

It's been a week of little movement in the Power Rankings. Barcelona stay on top but there is a jump for Juventus, who leapfrog the Premier League leaders.

1. Barcelona (no change)

The Catalan giants retain top spot despite losing in the league last weekend. That's because they then went out and taught Manchester City a footballing lesson with a supreme Champions League performance. Sure, Lionel Messi missed a last-minute penalty but, that aside, Barca's display was as professional as they come.

MANCHESTER, England -- The agony the Champions League annually brings to Manchester City was only partly eased by the sight of Lionel Messi having his injury-time penalty saved by Joe Hart and his header of the rebound sliding by the post.

There were smiles among those home fans who had stayed behind. A moment of levity, perhaps even a glimmer of a chance for the second leg, but not one to disguise that at this level, in this competition, City again look short of the quality required to progress...

For seven consecutive seasons, Barcelona have reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League while Manchester City have never reached that stage in their history, and Tuesday's 2-1 Barca win means it is unlikely those trends will be bucked after the second leg in Camp Nou.

However, Barca will kick themselves that the gap is not wider, with a last-minute penalty conversion by Lionel Messi would have left it safer for the Blaugrana, who had only 10 men to face in the final 17 minutes after...

MANCHESTER, England -- Three quick thoughts on Barcelona's 2-1 win over Manchester City in Tuesday night's Champions League round of 16 first leg at the Etihad Stadium.

1. Barcelona exude supremacy

It was a night when Barcelona touched their best, but Manchester City never looked so far away. The gap between these teams seemed so much more distant than the Catalans' 2-1 winning margin, and it's hard not to think the tie is over.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini got his tactics badly wrong, and City will...
