Lineups are in:
TEAM NEWS @MCFC: Hart, Zabaleta, Clichy, Demichelis, Kompany (C), Fernando, Yaya Toure, Navas, Milner, Jovetic, Aguero— Manchester City FC (@MCFC) November 5, 2014
CSKA XI vs. Man City: Akinfeev; Mário Fernandes, Ignashevich, Berezutski, Schennikov; Wernbloom, Dzagoev, Eremenko, Natcho; Musa, Doumbia.— Squawka Football (@Squawka) November 5, 2014
City remain unchanged from the derby victory at the weekend. There is definitely a risk to that. Which players would you B&Bers prefer to see in the XI instead?
No surprises in the CSKA lineup either. All of the usual suspects and the heavy hitters are there.
As a reminder here are the group standings at the moment:
1. Bayern, 9 points, +8
2. Roma, 4 points, -2
3. City, 2 points, -1
4. CSKA, 1 point, -5
Roma are at Bayern today in the group's other game. If the Germans win, they'll have already sealed progress to the next round AND first place in the group, which could affect City's meeting with them on matchday 5.
