How to watch Man City vs Club Brugge on TV

7

Manchester City will be looking to quickly put Saturday’s shocking Premier League loss to Crystal Palace behind them when they return to the Champions League on Wednesday.

Club Brugge are the visitors at the Etihad Stadium just a few weeks after City crushed the Belgian champions 5-1 in the reverse match on match day three of the competition.

Another victory here would give City nine points in four games and a great chance to reach the knockout stage. However, anything else can make them vulnerable, as Bruges is only two points behind entering it.

This is all you need to know about the game …

Ferran Torres (foot) is still the only confirmed injury absence for Pep Guardiola, who may consider some rotation given the one-sided nature of the reverse match and the upcoming Manchester derby this weekend.

Aymeric Laporte is eligible to play here, with his red card against Palace not affecting European games.

Eder Balanta has been suspended for Bruges due to his last yellow card, which will force the Belgian champions to a change after appointing the same starting eleven in every match so far.

Man City: Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Ake, Zinchenko; Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Gundogan; Mahrez, Palmer, Sterling

Club Brugge: Mignolet; Mata, Hendry, Nsoki, Sobol; Sowah, Shapes, Zipper, Long; Vanaken; De Ketelaere

Last month’s match was the first and only time Manchester City and Club Brugge met.

Even with a certain suspicious squad rotation, there is enough quality in the City line to ignore Club Brugge, especially at home.

It may not be as one-sided as it was in Belgium, although there may be an opportunity for winger to impress and bet their respective claims on more permanent places after the disappointment over the Premier League loss over the weekend.

Prediction: Man City 2-1 Club Brugge
