Confirmed: Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach line-ups

City Of Manchester Stadium

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

Manchester City welcome Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach to the Etihad Stadium this evening as the Blues attempt to climb above Juventus and finish top of their Champions League qualifying group.

That will be easier said than done with City two points behind the Italian club and Juventus knowing they have things very much in their own hands.

The likelihood is that City will finish second in Group D and potentially face a much tougher opponent in the next round, but if the Blues want to win this competition they will need to face the great and the good of the game between now and the final anyway.

City are in the midst of an injury crisis but they still have plenty of quality players to call on and they will want to get back to winning ways after suffering a shock 2-0 defeat to Stoke City in the Premier League at the weekend.
