Preview

The pair have only met twice competitively, in the knock-out stages of the 2011/12 Europa League campaign.

City booked our place in the last 16 with a 4-0 triumph over Porto, securing a 6-1 victory on aggregate.

It should be an interesting affair considering the style match ups.

A new era and we go forward for a potential title winning campaign.

Team News

Oleksandr Zinchenko is fit again and is available for selection.

Kevin De Bruyne, Aymeric Laporte, Gabriel Jesus and Benjamin Mendy remain side-lined with injury.

Prediction

Manchester City 4-2 Porto
