20:45 Manchester City – Bayern Munich

  • This game could barely be set up in more contrasting ways for these two teams, with City needing nothing less than a win and Bayern already guaranteed top spot in the group.
  • City were given a footballing lesson last time Bayern came to the Etihad, and with two central midfielders absent for the hosts, the visitors are likely to control proceedings once again.
  • Even with so many players out, Bayern beat Hoffenheim 4-0 at the weekend, while City were highly unconvincing at home to Swansea.

Team News

Manchester City

  • Man City will be without both Fernandinho and Yaya Touré so their central midfield will be much weakened for the visit of heavyweights Bayern Munich.
  • David Silva could be rushed back to play in this must-win match.
  • Despite their problems in midfield, Manuel Pellegrini could play with an extra midfielder to combat Bayern's midfield strengths.
  • Sergio Agüero and Stevan Jovetic both skipped training on Monday but aren't considered serious doubts.

Bayern Munich

  • Pep Guardiola has plenty of injuries to contend with, but given that his team do not even need a point from the game he could give some squad players a run out.
  • The likes of Sebastian Rode and Xherdan Shaqiri could be given a run out.
  • Jerome Boateng is a doubt after coming off at the weekend and he could be rested.
