Manchester City Team news and predicted XI vs Bayern Munich

The Cityzens play host in the Champions League first leg on Tuesday

Manchester City will be hoping to continue their hopes of lifting a first Champions League trophy as they host Bayern Munich at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night, bringing Pep Guardiola back into contact with Thomas Tuchel.

The German got the better of his opponent last time they met, with Tuchel the Chelsea manager in the 2021 Champions League final, and he will be hoping to repeat his success two years later against the Premier League champions when the two European heavyweights collide.

Both coming into the game in fine form and with weekend wins in domestic competition, it promises to be a mouthwatering affair.

Read on for the latest Manchester City team news, and how we expect Guardiola to set his side up for the clash.

Predicted XI

Team News

The headline news for Manchester City will be the continued absence of Phil Foden, with the youngster currently out having suffered an appendix issue while on international duty with England last month.

Haaland, who also withdrew during the international break, returned to action against Southampton with a brace and will almost certainly lead the Manchester City line once more. He will be hoping that a change of club will help him reverse his awful record against the Bavarian giants, who he has faced seven times and been on the losing side each and every single time, despite scoring five goals.
