UEFA Champions League Starting XI: Monaco vs Manchester City

By Keegan Kruger - Mar 15, 2017 08:35 PM @KeeganKruger

Ligue 1 leaders Monaco welcome Pep Guardiola's Manchester City to the Stade Louis II for the second leg of their Round of 16 UEFA Champions League tie – here's how the teams will line up.

The Premier League outfit beat their French opposition 5-3 at the Etihad in the first leg, but the three away goals they conceded will concern them.

Monaco have been impressive in this campaign, and considering they have scored 123 goals in all competitions this season, they will have confidence that they can get back into this tie.

City will go into this game with a bit of confidence themselves, though, as they have never lost to French opposition in European competition.

Monaco, however, have a great record against English opponents in the knockout phase of this competition, as they have come out on top in their past three matches against them (Manchester United in 1997/98, Chelsea in 2003/04 and Arsenal in 2014/15).

The second leg is expected to see plenty of goals again as both sides have been able to keep only one clean sheet in this year's competition.

In team news, City will be without Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan due to injury, while the French side will be missing Boschilia, Guido Carrillo and Kamil Glik.

Here are the starting line-ups:

Monaco: Subašic; Sidibé, Jemerson, Raggi, Mendy; Fabinho, Bakayoko, Silva, Lemar; Germain, Mbappé.

Manchester City: Caballero; Sagna, Stones, Kolarov, Clichy; Fernandinho; Sterling, Silva, De Bruyne, Sané; Agüero.

What's your prediction for tonight's game? Have your say in the comments section below.

End of the road for the Pep. Three goals away plus the absence of Toure could work for Monaco
