team news

City make seven changes from the side that lost to Leeds United at the weekend.

Only Ederson, Oleksandr Zinchenko, John Stones and Bernardo keep their places for the second leg with Borussia Dortmund.

Returning are Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Rodrigo, Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez.

City XI: Ederson, Walker, Zinchenko, Dias, Stones, Rodrigo, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Foden, Bernardo, Mahrez

Subs: Steffen, Trafford, Ake, Sterling, Jesus, Laporte, Torres, Mendy, Fernandinho, Cancelo, Garcia

Probable formation and tactics

It seems 4-3-3 is most likely with now familiar false 9 employed.

De Bruyne, Foden, Gundogan and Bernardo have all played in that role at some point this season, so it remains to be seen who gets the nod this evening.

The back four is more straightforward, with Zinchenko and Walker edging out Joao Cancelo and Dias and John Stones starting ahead of Aymeric Laporte who has recovered from a minor injury.

Expect a similar approach from the first leg, with plenty of City possession and, hopefully, plenty of opportunities.

PEP PREVIEW

“If we want to win, we have to deserve it, we have to go for it. That is going to happen, the way we have done many times this season.

“Of course we have to control emotions, but sometimes you need emotions in the good way to win these games.

“We are not going to do anything special, just go there to win the game and each one will need to be a leader on the pitch.

“The guy who feels comfortable during the game take more responsibility to be more involved in the game.

“For the guys who are more nervous or quieter, do your job, play simple and maybe five minutes later you are ready to make a good performance. We need 11 player and the substitutes."

Eden Terzić preview

"The belief here is great, but that alone will not be enough. We have shown that we can hold out against top teams. It will be a brutally difficult task. We have to work hard and be courageous tomorrow.

"Jadon [Sancho] won't be at our disposal, although he is giving his best to return as best as possible. We would like to have him with us tomorrow but we have to take our time with him so he's not an option."
