City should be quaking in their boots, trumpets Catalan press
After Barça's 4-0 win over Depor, there was renewed optimism in the Barcelona dailies ahead of Manchester City's Champions League visit.
The Catalonia-based press savoured Lionel Messi's goalscoring return for Barcelona as the Spanish champions got back to winning ways in LaLiga this weekend ahead of their European clash with Manchester City.
Barcelona bounce back from Celta loss
Having lost 4-3 at Celta Vigo before the international break, Barça resumed league duties on Saturday with a morale-boosting 4-0 thumping of Deportivo La Coruña at the Camp Nou.
A double for Rafinha Alcántara and one from Luis Suárez left Luis Enrique's men 3-0 up at the break, before Messi scored in the second half, soon after being brought on for his first appearance since suffering a groin injury in September.
"Start trembling City"
With Los Azulgranas hosting club legend Pep Guardiola's Sky Blues in the Champions League on Wednesday, Sport declared: "Messi's back, start trembling City".
La Vanguardia also celebrated the Argentine ace's comeback, while El Periódico de Catalunya added: "Barça enjoy Messi once more".
"The show returns"
Meanwhile, Mundo Deportivo described the performance as "top form from a team that's ready for the visit of City," proclaiming: "The show returns".
