Manchester City will welcome Sevilla at the Etihad Stadium this Wednesday night as both sides try to get the better of each other in this UEFA Champions League clash. Man City managed to grind out a narrow 1-0 victory over Leicester City last weekend. In contrast, the Andalusian outfit suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Rayo Vallecano recently which has hampered their momentum ahead of this game.

Manchester City vs Sevilla: Talking Tactics

Pep Guardiola will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could instruct his men to control the flow of the game and engineer some clear-cut chances to win this home contest.

Jorge Sampaoli will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to ask his players to sit deep and soak in all the pressure before trying to expose the home side’s weaknesses on the counter.

Jesus Corona, Tanguy Nianzou and Youssef En-Nesyri will be sidelined for this game due to injuries. Fernando is also a significant concern ahead of this encounter at the Etihad and will be in a race against time to be fit in this midweek game.

Sevilla Predicted XI

Dmitrovic; Navas, Gudelj, Marcao, Acuna; Rakitic, Jordan; Januzaj, Isco, Gomez; Mir

Key Men

Manchester City

Phil Foden will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for Man City in the final third in the absence of Erling Haaland. The defensive performance of Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake could go a long way in determining the fate of this game.

Sevilla

Ivan Rakitic and Adnan Januzaj have to find a way to create some decent chances for Sevilla on the counter. Marko Dmitrović will be expected to make a few solid saves at the back if the visitors are to have any chance of containing the Man City attack.
