In a special midweek encounter, football fans at Camp Nou will be treated to a top-class friendly as Barcelona host Manchester City on Wednesday.

The match was organised to raise funds for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research after ex-Barca goalkeeper Juan Carlos Unzue, who previously worked under current City boss Pep Guardiola was diagnosed with the disease.

After a disappointing opening to their La Liga campaign, drawing Rayo Vallecano 0-0, Barca’s new-look attack took out their frustrations on Real Sociedad this weekend, winning 4-1, ending a four-match domestic drought without a goal or victory, dating back to least season.

When Xavi took over from Ronald Koeman, Barcelona were a team in shambles, sitting ninth in the table, losing four of their last six games under the soon to be new Dutch manager.

The former World Cup champion with Spain has an embarrassment of riches to call upon in the attack, and the expectations are that this team might be the only Spanish side capable of unseating Real Madrid for the La Liga crown.

In a short period of time Xavi has proven to be a pragmatic manager since returning to Barcelona, a club he helped capture eight Spanish league titles as a player, three with Guardiola as his coach.

The 42-year-old has also shown that he can adapt well to situations thrown his way in games, while making intelligent, tactical shifts to change his team’s fortunes.

Even though they have their share of star players, who have generated a lot of excitement amongst their fans, this is a team with a solid young nucleus of talent who should be able to learn a lot from the veterans who have entered the fray.

In six previous meetings against Man City, Barca have only lost once, winning all three matches played at the Camp Nou by a combined score of 7-1.

Ruben Dias replaced Nathan Ake after the Dutchman sustained an early injury against the Magpies, and John Stones made his first appearance of the season on Sunday.

Bernardo Silva started in place of Riyad MahrezAymeric Laporte has an ACL injury and new signing Sergio Gomez was on the substitutes bench.

Barcelona possible starting lineup:
Pena; Garcia, Pique, Alba; Kessie, Gavi; Roberto, Torres, Pjanic, Dembele; Braithwaite

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ortega; Gomez, Stones, Dias, Lewis; Palmer, Phillips, Grealish; Foden, Alvarez, Mahrez
