City keeper Joe Hart made the save on Messi's shot, with the Argentine unable to head the rebound into goal that would have given Barca a dominant advantage heading into the second leg. The miss only showed us he's human, and he easily remains one of the best players in the world.

Suarez's first game back in England since his summer transfer to Barcelona was a bang, helping the Spanish giants to two huge away goals against the 2013-14 EPL Champs.
