Preview

Pep Guardiola’s men won three of five November games, advancing to Champions League Round of 16 in the process.

Porto won all five of their games in all competitions in November, including successive European victories over Marseille.

Having already secured progression to the Round of 16, Pep Guardiola’s men will secure top spot in Group C with a win or draw at the Estádio do Dragão.

Should Porto avoid defeat (or if Olympiacos beat Marseille), the Portuguese side would also progress. A great match is in store.

Team News

City’s injury situation is improving, with Pep Guardiola confirming that Nathan Ake and Sergio Aguero will be the only absences.

For the FC Porto, Ivan Marcano, Pepe, Mouhamed Mbaye are out. Marko Grujic will serve his suspension for a red card.

Prediction

Manchester City 2-0 Porto
