MCI vs MAR Dream11 Prediction Team News, Injury Report, Starting Lineups
Manchester City Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Pep Guardiola’s hands are full as far as the availability of players is concerned. Almost all the players are available for selection. That said, super striker Sergio Aguero will still need an assessment ahead of the MCI vs MAR Dream11 Team Prediction match.
Expected changes: With the last-16 already done and dusted, expect City head coach Guardiola to ring in changes.
Aymeric Laporte, who has been dropped for the last four games for City, could be recalled back into the playing 11 with either Garcia or Dias his partner in the heart of the backline.
Expect few fringe players and academy prospects to get the taste of the Champions League action here.
Phil Foden is likely to operate from the left side of the attack, while Silva on the right and Torres in the middle of the front three.
Manchester City Starting XI (probables):
Steffen / Ederson (GK)
Walker / Cancelo

Injury Report, Unavailability: Nemanja Radonjic is nursing an injury and won’t be available for selection.
Morgan Sanson is a doubt due to a knock and will be a game-time call as a result.
Expected changes: Leonardo Balerdi is back in contention after serving his one-game suspension in the last round.
Marseille Starting XI (probables):
MCI vs MAR Dream11 Teams
GK: S Mandanda
DEF: H Sakai, E Garcia, J Cancelo, N Ake
MID: M Cuisance, F Torres (C), P Foden (VC), I Gundogan, B Silva
FW: F Thauvin
Ferran Torres: The 20-year-old Spanish can play in a variety of roles making Pep Guardiola’s job all too easy when naming players for the offensive position. He should be in Dream 11 prediction teams.
Games: 21 (this season)
Florian Thauvin: Marseille’s most important player on current form. Whether it’s setting his teammates up at the goal or getting a goal for himself, he can do almost anything on the football pitch.
Games: 17 (this season)
X-factors, differential picks
Darío Benedetto: For a player playing in his position his numbers should be better. But he can get on the scoreboard and should be considered as a dark horse.
Games: 16 (this season)
Phil Foden: The young Englishman certainly deserves a more consistent run in the playing 11. But he has made most of the minutes he got.
Games: 16 (this season)
