Pep Guardiola’s men face Atalanta away tonight in the Champions League. If Man City set up with this midfield, they should go through to the next round.
Man City are currently top of their Champions League group with 9 points. Pep Guardiola will want to qualify as quickly as possible.
However, he will have limitations tonight with a few players being out. Phil Foden is suspended and David Silva is injured.
Therefore, Man City will struggle in the middle. This is why he will probably go out with a 4-3-3 formation.
I predict that he will line up the midfield like this…
The centre midfielder’s form has been a lot better recently. Guarantee that he will be filling that central position this evening.
He will be aimig to guide the midfield forward while also assisting his team mates to a win.
Kevin De Bruyne
With David Silva being injured, De Bruyne will probably go out as captain.
He will also more than likely operate the left of midfield. However, the question will be, will he score, assist or both?
David Silva will probably be replaced by Bernardo. All three will have to work together efficiently.
With my prediction for the formation would mean that there should be 3 players up front. I predict they will be Jesus, Aguero and Raheem Sterling.
