Manchester City are looking to bounce back from yet another season of Champions League heartbreak as they post FC Porto on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola’s side returned to winning ways in the league over the weekend as they defeated Arsenal in the Premier League.

Porto have made an underwhelming start to their domestic campaign picking up just seven points from their first four games.

Last season’s Portuguese champions have lost and drawn their last two ahead of Wednesday’s trip to the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City vs FC Porto: Match preview

Manchester City and Pep Guardiola are back for another shot at the Champions League following yet another year of heartbreak.

After knocking out Real Madrid, City once again were eliminated from the Champions League at the quarter-final stage.

City were stunned by Lyon who won the knockout tie 3-1 to face Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.

Ahead of their Champions League return, City got back to winning ways in the league by edging past Arsenal 1-0.

Raheem Sterling’s first-half goal proved enough to clinch Guardiola’s side all three points.

Porto’s poor start to the season

Porto have so far collected just seven points from a possible 12 this season.

In their previous two outings, they were defeated 3-2 by Maritimo and drew 2-2 with Sporting Lisbon.

Despite their slow start, Porto are currently second in the Liga NOS, five points behind leaders Benfica.

Porto return to Europe’s elite competition following a year in the Europa League last season.

They were unable to make it past the round of 32 stage as they were eliminated by Bayer Leverkusen.
