Manchester City vs CSKA Moscow: Team sheets

Published Add your comment

Manchester City face CSKA Moscow knowing that a win is likely to put their Champions League fate into their own hands, something they gave up in the corresponding fixture between the teams a couple of weeks ago.

Manuel Pellegrini's side were seemingly cruising after going into a 2-0 lead in Russia, but a late dubious penalty to hand the home side an equaliser meant the initiative was handed to AS Roma. Though the Italians were busy getting thrashed 7-2 by Bayern Munich, City will now have to go to Rome and get result to have any chance of qualifying.

After a good performance in the derby win over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, Manchester City will be buoyant playing in front of their home fans against a team they should really be defeating comfortably.

Pellegrini can take no chances, so he was expected to field a strong side - and so he has. The team that faced Manchester United were obviously so impressive for the Citizens' boss, that he is sending out precisely the same starting XI as Saturday.

The Team

Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy, Navas, Fernando, Toure, Milner, Jovetic, Aguero.

Subs: Caballero, Sagna, Boyata, Mangala, Fernandinho, Nasri, Dzeko.
