Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is aiming to bring home a win from Nou Camp as City takes on his old team in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Guardiola, 45, spent the majority of his playing career with Barcelona and also managed the team for four years, picking up a slew of titles. He’s going to be back at Nou Camp, and he’s looking to get a win over his former side. The Spaniard stressed the importance of picking up points after only getting a draw against Celtic in the last game.

“I have never thought about the next game thinking a draw would be a good result,” Guardiola said.

“Of course it is complicated. No win in Glasgow means we have to take points off Barcelona there or here [at the Etihad Stadium], and especially in Germany [against Borussia Moenchengladbach] as well.

“We have four games left, we have to win two. We have to make six points to be in the next step.

“We are going to try to win the first points in the next game. That is sure.”

Asked whether a draw on the road against Barcelona should be seen as a good result, Guardiola said: “I don’t know. It depends on the game.

“When you play like Saturday [1-1 draw with Everton] then it is not a good result.

“But, if Barcelona play much better than us, maybe it is a good result.”
