Win or bust (with a little help from elsewhere) for City tonight then and Roberto Mancini has opted for an attacking line-up with Samir Nasri and david Silva behind Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko. Elsewhere, Stefan Savic is a surprise inclusion at right back whilst Bayern are hit with injuries and do not field Toni Kroos, Arjen Robben, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Frank Ribery or Mario Gomez.
Here are the teams:
City - Hart, Savic, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy, Yaya, Barry, Nasri, Aguero, Silva, Dzeko.
Bayern - Butt, Rafinha, Boateng, Contento, Badstuber, Pranjić, Alaba, Gustavo, Tymoshchuk, Petersen, Olić
