UEFA Champions League 2016-17: Manchester City vs Monaco Match Preview
It has been one of those stop-start seasons for the Blue half of Manchester as they have failed to maintain the consistency in their performance. They did make a great start to the season in the domestic league but lost way in the middle. And recently they are once again back among the likely title contenders. However, the UEFA Champions League is a completely different kettle of fish, and Pep Guardiola and his men did get a taste of that when they played in the group league matches.
Monaco, on the other hand, has managed to get onto the top of the league table in the French Ligue 1 and are in good form of late. Radamel Falcao has been in good touch this season and will be a threat for the home side up front. Also, Joao Moutinho has been in good form and has played an instrumental role in the team’s good show this season.
Monaco finished at the top of the group E in the UEFA Champions League with 3 wins in 6 matches and the only defeat coming in the match against Bayer Leverkusen which they lost by a margin of 3-0. Manchester City, on the other hand, finished as the runner-up in Group C managing only two wins 6 matches. But very much like Monaco, have lost only one encounter drawing the rest of the matches. So it will be really interesting to see these teams fighting it out tonight for an advantage before the final leg which is scheduled to be played in France.
UEFA Champions League 2016-17: Manchester City vs Monaco Team News
Both teams have got some injury issues. Monaco will be without the services of their midfielder Gabriel Boschilia who has been ruled out of the team for the rest of the season due to a cruciate ligament injury. Manchester City will not be getting the services of Vincent Kompany who is still under rehab process in a bid to getting fit from the injury which he sustained way back in the month of November.
However, eyes will be on Radamel Falcao who will be making a comeback to England where he failed to shine. It remains to be seen whether he manages to punish Manchester City who are also in trouble with goalkeepers. The goalkeepers have kept Pep Guardiola worries and only time will tell whether Claudio Bravo will play under the woodwork or Caballero gets a chance ahead of Bravo. As things stand now, Pep will perhaps go for Bravo ahead of Caballero despite the not-up-to-the-mark performance.
Manchester City (probable line-up): Bravo, John Stones, Alexander Kolarov, Bacary Sagna, Fernandinho, Yaya Toure, Kevin de Bruyne, Silva, Raheem Sterling, Nolito and Sergio Aguero.
Monaco (probable line-up): Subasic, Jemerson, Mendy, Kamil Glik, Almany Toure, Joao Moutinho, Bernardo Silva, Fabinho, Thomas Lemar, Radamel Falcao and Valere Germain
