Preview

Flu boast the win over African champions and played really well in that match. A player of note is German Cano who is an experience striker and one who could present trouble.

City should be able to dissect this side as the gulf especially in midfield should show itself.

It may come down to individual brilliance on the attacking front.

It should be an interesting match.

For FLU, no real injuries of note.
