Houghton, James and Howey to star on Red Star Matchday Live

David James, Steve Howey and City captain Steph Houghton will be special guests on our Red Star Belgrade Matchday Live Show.

The Treble winners begin the defence of our Champions League crown by welcoming the Serbian outfit to the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday 19 September, with kick-off scheduled for 20:00 (UK).

Locking horns with the current Serbian SuperLiga champions represents our first match in the competition since last season’s epic final against Inter where Rodrigo’s famous goal secured a 1-0 win in Turkey.


We enter the Group G clash buoyed by extending our 100% start to the Premier League season with a 3-1 win against West Ham last time out.

However, against Barak Bakhar’s side who went an entire league season without defeat last term, an opening European success is far from a formality.

It’s certainly gearing up to be an intriguing night in the Champions League with Houghton, James and Howey offering their expert insight before, during and after the action.

They’ll join Chris Latchem in City Studios to discuss the victory at the London Stadium and deliver their verdict on Guardiola’s starting XI which those with notifications turned on in the official Man City app will be alerted to one hour before kick-off.

Our guests will reconvene for a short half-time debrief before returning for more in-depth post-match analysis.
