Manchester City?
The UEFA 5-year Club Ranking 2020 leader, who became the Spanish champion after a 3-year break, after losing 1-2 in first leg at home in the round of 16 will face a difficult away match against Manchester City, leader of the Global Club Soccer Rankings by Soccer Power Index. 


The Soccer Power Index ranks domestic soccer teams in the world based on goals scored, adjusted goals, shot-based expected goals, and non-shot expected goals. These criteria produce offensive and defensive ratings for each team which are then converted to an overall score on the Soccer Power Index.
