Confirmed: Juventus and Manchester City line-ups

Juventus fans

Here is how Juventus and Manchester City will line up this evening:

Manchester City take on Juventus this evening with Manuel Pellegrini’s men already safe in the knowledge that they have reached the knockout stages of the Champions League with two games to spare.

City are currently one point clear at the top of Group D with nine points from their first four matches, while tonight’s opponents are one point behind them.

Juventus will know they too can secure qualification for the next phase tonight, and may even do so with a defeat if Sevilla do not take all three points against Borussia Monchengladbach, but the Serie A club will want to win in front of their own fans and make it a double over the Blues.

City suffered a shock 4-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool at the weekend and they will be desperate to get that setback out of their system at the first available opportunity, but Juventus are a tough prospect in their own backyard so only time will tell how this one pans out.
