Vincent Kompany has drawn belief from Manchester City's famous win over QPR as he seeks another fightback in Barcelona.

City trail 2-0 from the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie and no team has ever overturned this deficit in a two-legged tie in this competition.
Barcelona have not been at their imperious best in recent weeks, but the Nou Camp remains a daunting venue for any visiting team.
The damning stats have not deflated Kompany, who simply recalls how City's title dreams appeared to have been dashed until last-gasp goals from Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero snatched the Premier League title in 2012.
"It would be great, but I've told you I'm a very difficult guy to convince of this doomed fate in this kind of situation," he told Sky Sports.
"Just because I was two goals down with five minutes to go to win the league after 38 games. This game still gives us belief until today.
"We've kept winning stuff, playing big games, big finals, we've been progressing in the Champions League - people are forgetting that - and our time will come. Hopefully tomorrow, but our time will come.
"Never forget QPR."
City have already been denied one piece of silverware after Sunday's shock 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat by Wigan and Kompany admits the team have lost their 'mojo' in recent weeks.
But the Belgian believes it's only a matter of time until City regain their best form and hopes it happens on the biggest night of their season so far.
"The weight is off our shoulders and we need to find out mojo back which has made us a special team in the beginning of the season. What has actually made us a special team until up to three weeks ago, it's still there and someone is going to experience us coming back to full form," he said.
"This is our period and we'll get ourselves out of it, there's no doubt about it. It needs to happen hopefully on a big night or else it will happen soon."
