The 'perfect game' is key to beating City - Rakitic.

Barcelona must be at the top of their game to seal a win over Premier League side Manchester City when they play in the Champions League, says Ivan Rakitic. The La Liga giants sealed a 4-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday, thanks to Rafinha's brace and goals from Luis Suarez and attacking ace Lionel Messi. However, Rakitic is convinced Luis Enrique's side have to play a "perfect game" against Pep Guardiola's men on Wednesday night.
