Barcelona and Manchester City will face off in the Champions League 2016-17 group stage on Wednesday.

This is the game everyone has been anticipating since the Champions League draw took place. The idea of see Pep Guardiola back at the Camp Nou yet again undeniably has many salivating. He went there two years ago as the manager of Bayern Munich only to lose in the semifinal.

Now he returns as the head honcho of Manchester City with a club that is coming off a 3-3 draw in this competition at Celtic.

Barcelona has endured for the past few weeks without Lionel Messi. He did not play in the team's 2-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach, a game that saw Arda Turan impose his potency.

Who Wins? Prediction

If Messi is at his best, this could turn into a no-contest rather quickly. But Pep Guardiola will be determined to win the group and manage a 1-1 draw in Barcelona.

Start Time, Date, Location

Barcelona and Manchester City kick off at 2:45 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.

Where to Watch - Live Stream and TV Info
