Stung by a chastening 4-0 defeat at Camp Nou two weeks ago, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola makes a second attempt to outwit his former club Barcelona Tuesday.Guardiola's men were undone by the second-half dismissal of goalkeeper Claudio Bravo on Oct. 19, when Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick to propel his side five points clear of City at the Group C summit.Having scored twice and made a goal for Ilkay Gundogan, striker Sergio Aguero is expected to keep his place in the starting XI, after being dropped for the trip to Barcelona.Barcelona are aiming for a sixth successive victory over City, who they eliminated from the Champions League in both 2013-14 and 2014-15 .French defenders Samuel Umtiti and Lucas Digne are due to fill in for Pique and Alba, with Arda Turan, Rafinha, Denis Suarez and Andre Gomes vying for the right to take Iniesta's place in midfield.
