Manchester City vs. Barcelona sells out over a month in advance

All tickets for Manchester City vs. Barcelona in the Champions League on November 1 have today sold out over four weeks in advance, the club have confirmed.

Pep Guardiola recently asked for full houses in the Champions League and his wish will be granted when his former club come to town. Though City sell out most or all tickets for Premier League and FA Cup games, Champions League and League Cup fixtures have often been under full capacity, except for the glamour fixtures.

The Champions League qualifier against Steaua drew a respectable 40,064 for a tie that was already over after City won 5-0 in Romania, but largely because the fixture was postponed by a day due to torrential rain, the home game against Borussia Mönchengladbach drew just 30,270, over 20,000 shy of capacity.

Because of UEFA regulations, stadium capacities are reduced for the Champions League, but somewhere in the region of 53,000 fans can be expected when the Blues attempt to beat Barcelona for the first time in a competitive fixture this November.
