For this second meeting of group A, Manchester City receive the Club Brugge for the 4th day of Champions League. After the heavy victory of Citizens (5-1) in the first leg, the Belgians have a revenge to take, but facing one of the favorite teams for the final victory the task looks very complicated.

Drawing : "LdC: Manchester City - Brugge, predictions, line-ups, match channel"

After a cup elimination and a defeat this weekend against Crystal Palace, the Citizens stay on a series of 2 games without wins. Pep’s men Guardiola therefore did not prepare well for this Champions League match. It is therefore possible to see changes in the starting composition with why not the starters of Mahrez or from Gundogan in the 11 holder. Nevertheless, Manchester City knows how to face Brugge, during the first leg the English had inflicted a correction on the Belgians! For City which aims for first place in the group, victory is imperative at the risk of seeing PSG move away at the top of the group. In case of victory, the English would take a very big step towards the 8th final.

On the Belgian side, the start of this European campaign is rather successful, in a strong group, Brugge was able to win against Leipzig and draw against PSG. These two good results allow the Belgian club to be able to believe in a qualification in the round of 16 or at least in 3rd place, synonymous with the Europa League.. If the Belgian team wants to qualify, a victory or a draw at theEtihad Stadium is mandatory, but facing a team that gave him enormous problems in the first leg it seems complicated. By winning last weekend against Sint-Truiden with a score of 2 to 1 Brugge prepared well for this trip to Manchester.

For this return leg between Manchester City and Brugge, the English should win this meeting without too many problems. After two straight setbacks, the men of Guardiola must wake up and the Belgian club seems to be perfect prey!

Editors’ prognosis: 3-1

In a match that promises to be very open with two teams that advocate attacking play, the show should be there. Even though Manchester City’s victory seems very logical, there is a good chance that Brugge will score a goal as well. The score of 3 goals to 1 in favor of the English therefore seems possible.

Probable compositions

Manchester city : Ederson – Cancelo – Dias – Laporte – Zinchenko – Gundogan – Rodri – Silva – Mahrez – Foden – Sterling

Brugge : Mignolet – Mata – Hendry – Nsoki – Sobol – Rits – Vormer – Lang – Vanaken – De Ketelaere – Dost
