CONFIRMED: Manchester City line-up v Roma

Stadio Olimpico during a Roma match

Here is the Manchester City team to take on Roma this evening.

Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Mangala, Clichy, Fernandinho, Fernando, Navas, Nasri, Milner, Dzeko

Subs: Cabellero, Sagna, Kolarov, Boyata, Lampard, Silva, Jovetic

It’s all or nothing for Manchester City this evening as they take on Roma for a place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Manuel Pellegrini has been left frustrated by the inconsistency of the team, which has led to this position though the side showed glimpses of what they were capable of in the dramatic win against Bayern Munich.

City will have a difficult atmosphere to contend with in Rome though they have plenty of experience in their team, which should help them see out any rough opening period to the match.

Pellegrini hasn’t been helped by missing key players for this game with Yaya Toure suspended and Sergio Aguero injured last weekend, which leaves the boss without two of his best players for one of the most important matches of his career so far.
