Read on for a preview ahead of Wednesday's European tug-of-war, complete with all the essential viewing information to ensure you don't miss a minute of what promises to be one of the season's must-watch matchups.Barcelona vs Manchester City: Predicted line-ups, kick off time, how and where to watch on TV and onlineBarcelona will welcome Manchester City to the Camp Nou on August 24 for a charity match promoted by Juan Carlos Unzue, which will raise funds for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) research.
The former Barcelona goalkeeper was diagnosed with hte condition two years ago, and club legends Xavi and Pep Guardiola will face off to help the Luzon Foundation continue their research. The clash comes at an unusual time for both clubs following the start of their league campaigns, with Barcelona currently on four points after two matches, while City have earned seven from their first three Premier League mathches.
Robert Lewandowski scored his first two Barcelona goals in that bounce-back win, including his first 44 seconds into the game. Xavi has a wealth of attacking options to support the Polish striker, and it'll be a roll of the dice each game to figure out which trio he'll go with on the day. There are no injuries currently for the Barca boss to work around, although the status of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is up in the air given the possibility of his departure to Chelsea. Despite not yet being registered for La Liga play, defender Jules Kounde could feature as the match is not an official league competition. Sergio Busquets was suspended for the match against La Real but he could return in midfield in place of Frenkie de Jong. Below is the club's last starting lineup for the weekend's La Liga match against Real Sociedad: Barcelona most recent starting lineup (4-3-3): Ter Stegen (GK) — Balde, Christensen, Garcia, Araujo — Gavi, De Jong, Pedri — Dembele, Lewandowski, Torres. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola assured fans that the club would deploy a strong starting lineup, telling reporters upon the announcement of the match, "We're going to bring all the big guns, don't worry.
" However, there are a few injuries for the Premier League side to contend with. Most notably, Nathan Ake picked up an early injury against Newcastle on Sunday and did not travel with the squad to Barcelona, replaced by Ruben Dias on Tyneside. Aymeric Laporte is reportedly close to returning from his long-term ACL injury, but is not yet available. Jack Grealish missed the Newcastle game with a knock, and while he traveled to Spain for the match, his status is unclear. Below is the club's last starting lineup for the weekend's Premier League match against Newcastle, which resulted in a 3-3 draw. Man City most recent starting lineup (4-3-3): Ederson (GK) — Cancelo, Ake, Stones, Walker — Gundogan, Rodri, Silva — Foden, Haaland, De Bruyne.
Also in line to start in Catalonia is City striker Sergio Aguero, who sent a message to Argentina team-mate Lionel Messi ahead of the clash, per Spanish newspaper Sport:All we can hope is that he has a bad day and our defence plays the game of its life. It’s that difficult because Leo is the best in the world. Playing against Messi will be something special. We are the same nationality and we are friends too. For that reason I didn’t want to to get Barcelona in the draw but sometimes fate plays a part and there’s nothing you can do. Nigerian prodigy Kelechi Iheanacho could be the man who drops out of Guardiola's XI in order for Aguero to come back in, although it's possible the manager may give them a rare chance starting alongside one another.
Each team should feature a strong starting lineup, as the two clubs look to put on a show in support of a mutual friend and colleague.
