Barcelona sell less than 1,000 tickets for Manchester City trip

Barcelona have sold just 750 tickets for their trip to the Etihad Stadium on November 1, when they face Manchester City in the Champions League.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan giants were offered 2,900 tickets in the South Stand, but only requested and sold 750 due to low demand.

This isn’t too unusual, as away contingents in Spanish football are known to be small, but it is still a low number for a club as big as Barcelona. Mundo Deportivo considers it a big disappointment, especially with the added intrigue of former Barca boss Pep Guardiola in charge of the Premier League side. The lack of novelty for this fixture, which has taken place several times in recent years, is mentioned as a possible reason for the poor sales.

All home tickets for the fixture have sold out well in advance.
