The former Liverpool striker, who moved on to the Nou Camp last summer, has not scored so freely in Spanish football as he did in the Premier League.

But he is relishing a crack on Tuesday night at unlocking Champions League rivals City's backline, picking it out as the soft spot in Manuel Pellegrini's team.

He said ahead of the Etihad Stadium last-16 tussle that City have quality "in midfield and up front, but they also have weakness at the back".

I think when you play against the big teams you never know what they're doing on the pitch.

They have really good players and really good quality with the ball but we are Barcelona and we know what we can do against City.
