Luis Suarez takes kicking from Neymar ahead Manchester City clash

It would seem the prospect of a Manchester City victory at the Camp Nou on Wednesday does not warrant any form of anxiety for Barcelona's players, if their exploits today were anything to go by.

Judging from the photos taken from Barca's training session at Ciutat Esportiva, it seems that for Neymar and Luis Suarez in particular were in high spirits ahead of the Champions League last-16 second leg.

The two team mates were caught messing around during a training session ahead of the pivotal match against City, with the Brazilian appearing to kick Suarez whilst the latter had taken a tumble.

Dani Alves appeared unable to resist the temptation of joining in with the fun, as he took over kicking duties once Neymar had presumably grown bored. 

Rest assured, there is no tension between the two attackers, as playmaker  Xavi looks on laughing in the background whilst a floored Suarez looks on despairingly and in (some) discomfort.

It was Suarez who scored twice at the Etihad Stadium three weeks ago to place Barcelona firmly in control of the tie, taking a one-goal advantage to Catalonia and, most importantly, two valuable away goals.

Barcelona are the clear favourites to do what is required to reach the quarter-final of the competition and City face an uphill task to overcome Luis Enrique's side.

Barcelona fans: do you think your side will win the Champions League this season?
