Its easy to blame Martin Demichelis for bringing down Lionel Messi.
Or, to wonder why Jonas Eriksson couldn’t see it was outside the box.
But, the real architect of Barcelona’s opening goal at Manchester City was Andres Iniesta.
So far there are no GIFs celebrating Andres Iniesta’s wonderful vision at the Etihad.
And, it will no doubt get lost in all the gnashing of teeth about the penalty.
But, Andres Iniesta is a genius and to play a ball bisecting Vincent Kompany and Demichelis perfectly, should be celebrated.
What. A. Player.
Unbelievable pass from Iniesta, still don't believe he's given the credit he fully deserves

The powers of Iniesta and Messi. Wonderful run and pass. Goodbye City.
