Manchester City will visit Zagreb having already qualified to the knockout stage of the competition.

Last time out, thanks to second half goals from substitutes Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden earned City a 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb at the Etihad Stadium.

Sterling swept home a Riyad Mahrez cross from close-range with 25 minutes left, before Foden finished off an excellent counter-attacking move in stoppage time to make it two wins from two in Champions League Group C.

Team News:

Injuries are the tale for City this time around.

John Stones misses the game due to a hamstring injury he suffered against Manchester United. David Silva was also left at home as a precaution after picking up a knock at the weekend.

Sergio Aguero has also not recovered in time, with he and Stones joining long-tern absentees, Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte, on the sideline.

For Zagreb, Sandro Kulenovic (broken foot) is the hosts only injury concern.

Prediction

A probable rotated side could favor Zagreb. I see City eking out a win.

Manchester City 1-0 Dinamo Zagreb
