Both sides enter the Catalonian showdown in contrasting fortunes, with Barca having thrashed Deportivo La Coruna 4-0 and City only managing a 1-1 draw at home to Everton, but Guardiola feels his former club are “amazing”,regardless of form.“Barcelona are special in the way they play. They’re a machine,” he told BBC Sport. “For the last decade, the last 50 years,Barcelona dominate football matches. I love the way they play.“They have three amazing players - Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar - up front. “They are amazing on the counter-attack.They have a good build-up. They are a good team.”
