Man City vs Liverpool: Champions League Preview, Team News, Lineups & Prediction

Manchester City hosts Liverpool tonight in the Champions League second leg with the hopes of progressing after being well beaten by the Reds last Wednesday.

Man City vs Liverpool, Who will win? Who will progress?

In my own opinion, I expect Manchester City to win this game, But, to qualify, I doubt if Manchester City can make it.

Judging from previous encounters, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are have shown they have the capacity to contain Guardiola’s fluid playing Citizens. Liverpool are therefore my heavy favourites to progress.

The Argentine striker missed the first leg due to injury.

Long-term absentee Benjamin Mendy is the only player sidelined for the Sky Blues.
