Manchester City's poor Champions League discipline continues

Barcelona's Luis Suarez notched a brace, but Sergio Aguero's second-half strike gave Manchester City a lifeline heading into the second leg.

The story of Manchester City's Tuesday evening was simple. The 2-1 loss to Barcelona finished better than it should have but, equally, worse than it could have too.

The Catalan giants ran rings around the hosts for the first half and, had they been more ruthless in front of goal, they'd have had a bigger advantage at the break than a 2-0 lead.

However, the Blues had chances too. If Edin Dzeko's heading was better or if Wilfried Bony hadn't fallen over Fernandinho's ankles, Manuel Pellegrini's side...

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.

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...

Clinging to small mercies is an occupational hazard for football fans. With 93 pulsating minutes on the clock, the score at 2-1 for Barcelona and Lionel Messi stepping up to take a penalty, Manchester City fans could have been forgiven for thinking the game -- and the tie -- was finally up.

Messi, who had spent the evening showcasing his unique balance and touch, chose to smack his penalty to Joe Hart's left, and the City goalkeeper stopped the shot. In an act of clemency toward Pablo Zabaleta,...

Luis Suarez the star as Barcelona push Manchester City to the brink

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...
