Borussia Dortmund v Manchester City: Predicted line-up

Published 1 Comments

Football News

Manchester City have already been eliminated from the Champions League, but they take on Borussia Dortmund tonight looking to salvage a little pride.

Roberto Mancini's side face a huge challenge - Dortmund's record at the Westfalenstadoin is hugely impressive - and the Premier League champions will have to do without David Silva, ruled out with a hamstring injury.

The diminuatitive Spaniard is a doubt for next Sunday's Manchester derby as well, and the 26-year-old has not travelled to Germany as he continues his rehabilitation process.

After three draws and two defeats, City have no chance of progressing, while Bundesliga champions Dortmund can clinch top spot in Group D with a draw against Mancini's side.

That would be a tremendous achievement for Jurgen Klopp's young team, who have earned themselves the reputation of being one of the most exciting teams to watch in the competition.

They've already qualified for the next stage, but will fancy their chances of taking three points in the final game, especially as City will also be without Yaya Toure - the Ivorian is suspended after his booking against Real Madrid.

Mancini will also have to do without Aleksandar Kolarov and Gael Clichy, both left-backs are struggling with injuries, and James Milner is a doubt after picking up a hamstring problem against Wigan.

So, with the game less than six hours away, GMF has a go at predicting the Manchester City line-up.

Hart, Maicon, Kompany, Nastasic, Zabaleta, Barry, Rodwell, Nasri, Sinclair, Tevez, Dzeko
