  • It remains to be seen whether Pep Guardiola will allow Claudio Bravo to continue in goal now City are in the semi finals.
  • Benjamin Mendy, Vincent Kompany, Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden will miss out for the home side.

*Key players:

(IndiaFantasy suggests picking players of Manchester City over Bristol City)

(GK) Bravo (MCI)

(RF) Sterling (MCI)

(ST) Aguero (MCI)

(LF) Sane (MCI)

(ST) Reid (BRI)

(CF) Paterson (BRI)

*(The aforementioned players are selected on the basis of their performance in their last match)

 

IndiaFantasy Prediction:

Manchester City has scored 4+ goals in 38% of their home matches this season, which does not bode well for Bristol City. Since eliminating Manchester United, Bristol City has only won one of the resulting five matches and have lost each of their last three.

Lee Johnson’s side has failed to score in their last two and have shipped eight goals in that time. They are not in great shape ahead of this daunting fixture. The aim for Bristol City will be to at least stay in the tie to have something to fight for in the second leg. Whether they can manage that, is another question.
