Posted on by Sreya

Manchester City vs Monaco

Manchester City vs Monaco – Manchester City hosts AS Monaco at the Etihad on 21st February, Tuesday in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie.

Manchester City finished second behind Barcelona in Group C to set up a meeting with Ligue 1 club AS Monaco who finished top of Group E ahead of Bayer Leverkusen and Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester City have a relatively easy draw in the Round of 16 and with Arsenal, the other English club in the competition all but knocked out, Pep Guardiola’s side going through would be crucial for the English teams’ co-efficient ranking.

Team News

Vincent Kompany, Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan are sidelined through injuries while Gael Clichy is listed as a doubt. Jemerson is suspended for the visitors while Boschilia is injured.

Manchester City Possible Starting Lineup: Willy Caballero, Pablo Zabaleta, Nicolas Otamendi, John Stones, Aleksandar Kolarov, Yaya Toure, Fernandinho, Leroy Sane, Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero.

AS Monaco Possible Starting Lineup: Danijel Subasic, Djibril Sidibe, Andrea Raggi, Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva, Joao Moutinho, Fabianho, Thomas Lemar, Valere Germain, Radamel Falcao.

“To be here is not easy. I want to convince the players to enjoy that moment. It is beautiful. People can think Manchester City have to be here but a lot of big clubs are not here. We are lucky guys. All of Europe will watch us, to analyse us, to kill us if we don’t win or say how good we are if we do.”

– Pep Guardiola, Manchester City.
