Likely lineups

Manchester City and Leipzig will face each other in the return leg of the Champions League round of 16. Kickoff at 9 p.m. at the Etihad Stadium. On the one hand, the English will try to give continuity to their four consecutive league victories while the Germans will want to confirm themselves as potential “outsiders” in this edition.

Guardiola is not expected to make any major changes from the first leg match. In front of Ederson will be Walker, Aké, Dias and Laporte. In attack Haaland will be supported by Grealish, Mahrez and De Bruyne.

The guests, on the other hand, will have to do without bomber Nkunku. In the offensive phase, therefore, space for André Silva with Szoboszlai. Forsberg and Werner in the three-quarter. In the back row ballot on the left flank between Raum and Halstenberg.

Likely lineups.

MANCHESTER CITY (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Aké; Gundogan, Rodri; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Grealish; Haaland. All. Guardiola

LIPSIA (4-2-3-1): Blaswich; Henrichs, Orban, Gvardiol, Halstenberg; Laimer, Kampl; Szoboszlai, Forsberg, Werner; André Silva. All. Rose
