Manchester City remain England’s biggest hope to progress beyond the round of 16 in the Champions League. Pep Guardiola is a great manager and he has done exceedingly well in this competition, both with Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
The tie against Monaco promises to be a cracker. Monaco are a free scoring side under Leonardo Jardim, and have been a joy to watch this season. They are heading into this match on the back of 1-1 draw with Bastia on Friday, but have maintained their three-point lead at the summit of Ligue 1.
Manchester City, on the other hand, will be looking to bounce back from their 0-0 draw with Huddersfield in the FA Cup on Saturday. City have been impressive at home this season, having lost just once in the league.
Man City team news: Left back, Gael Clichy, has been suffering from a back problem, and he will face a late fitness test. Sergio Aguero is likely to lead the attack, while Willy Caballero could keep his place between the sticks.
Man City predicted starting XI: Caballero, Zabaleta, Otamendi, Stones, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Toure, Silva, Bruyne, Sane, Aguero
Monaco predicted starting XI: Subasic, Mendy, Raggi, Gilk, Sidibe, Lemar, Fabinho, Mourinho, Silva, Falcao, Germain
