Club Brugge Team News
Eder Balanta, the midfielder for Brugge, has already had three bookings in the Champions League and will be unavailable for this match, therefore Ruud Vormer and Mats Rits should start in midfield.
Noa Lang, a highly rated winger, is suspended for his team’s next league match but is fit to play here, while Stanley Nsoki returns from a domestic ban to take over in defence from Brandon Mechele.
With his game-winning brace at the weekend, Dost has undoubtedly put himself in contention to lead the line, and he may get his wish after Kamal Sowah was nowhere to be found.
Manchester City Team News
With a fractured foot, Ferran Torres is Man City’s primary injury concern, while Aymeric Laporte’s red card at the weekend has no bearing on the Champions League.
Guardiola is expected to rearrange the group ahead of the Manchester derby this weekend, with Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling both set to return to the attack.
Kevin De Bruyne is reportedly in danger of losing his starting spot against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, so Guardiola may be inclined to recall Ilkay Gundogan.
Manchester City XI:
Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko; Gundogan, Rodri, Silva; Mahrez, Foden, Sterling
Club Brugge XI:
Mignolet; Mata, Hendry, Nsoki, Sobol; Rits, Vormer; Lang, Vanaken, De Ketelaere; Dost
