Manchester City will resume their battle with Bayern Munich as they travel to Allianz Arena on Wednesday night for the return leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final. The Sky Blues recorded a splendid 3-1 victory over Leicester City in their last league outing, so we can expect them to be in a rich run of form as they have a three-goal lead on aggregate.

Pep Guardiola will probably opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and is expected to name a strong starting XI. Erling Haaland will continue to lead the line, while Bernardo Silva gets a chance to impress from the right wing.

Ederson will feature in between the sticks for Man City after conceding one goal in his last outing. Guardiola could name a back three, including Ruben Dias, Manuel Akanji and Nathan Ake, at the heart of City’s defence as they try to keep the opposition attackers at bay during the game.

Kyle Walker and Aymeric Laporte will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.


Rodri and John Stones will function in the holding midfield positions, and they will be tasked with shielding the back three.

Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne will operate just ahead of them as they try to dominate the possession in the middle of the park and engineer enough chances for Man City to win this Champions League contest.


Bernardo Silva will function in the right-wing position while Jack Grealish operates on the opposite flank; both of them will have to provide support from the wide areas and cut into the penalty box to create chances in front of the goal.

Erling Haaland will lead the line for the Mancunian giants on the attacking third of the pitch. The Norway international would be eager to get his name on the scoresheet when he laces up to face off against the Bavarians this midweek.

Julian Alvarez will be named on the bench as he awaits his chance to catch the eye in the final quarter of the game if Man City are in need of a goal by then.
