Hoffenheim will go to the Etihad
Heavy schedule and accumulating fatigue begin to affect even such a powerful team as the current squad of Manchester City.
The wards of Pep Guardiola suffered their first defeat in the Premier League on Saturday, and now they have to receive Hoffenheim.
Pep Guardola sadly told that there were only fifteen people left out of his team at the press conference.
Initially, fans hoped to see Kun in the final match of the UCL, but the Argentinean had a relapse and is close to returning on the field now.
It is good that in the group, the Citizens have already solved almost all the problems.
Even in case of Lyon’s victory in Kiev, the British will simply fall into second place – an unpleasant option, but also very unlikely.
Man City: Ederson – Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Delph – B. Silva, Gündogan, Fernandinho, D. Silva (c), Sterling, Sane
Out: Aguero (groin), Bravo (Achilles), De Bruyne (ligament), Mendy (knee), Zinchenko (nose)
Coach: Pep Guardiola
Hoffenheim: Baumann – Bicakcic, Vogt, Hübner, Kaderabek – Zuber, Demirbay, Schulz – Kramaric – Belfodil, Joelinton
Out: Nordtveit (foot), Otto (foot), Rupp (cruciate ligament), Szalai (suspended)
Coach: Julian Nagelsmann
