Manchester City, Barça’s next rival in the Champions League, also won their Cup match this evening. The men managed by Manuel Pellegrini defeated Leicester by 1-3 in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.
Kolarov opened the scoring after only eight minutes of play. Dzeko bagged a brace on both sides of the break (min 40 and 52). Leicester, who play in the English Championship, pulled one back thanks to a strike from Lloyd Dyer.
