Manchester City v Juventus

VfB Stuttgart or Union Berlin – Who will secure their spot in 2019/2020 Bundesliga season?

Manchester City will be looking to carry their impressive league form into the Champions League when they host Juventus in the first group game on Tuesday.

The Citizens have been imperious in the Premier League thus far, winning all five of their games without conceding a single goal.

However, Manuel Pellegrini will be without Sergio Aguero, who picked up a knee injury in Saturday's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

The City boss confirmed, though, that Raheem Sterling and David Silva, who both missed the game at the weekend, would be fit enough to feature.

Pablo Zabaleta (knee), Gael Clichy and Fabian Delph (hamstring) remain injury absentees, while Saturday's game-winner Kelechi Iheanacho is ineligible.

Juventus, meanwhile, come into the game in rotten form, having failed to win in three Serie A outings thus far.

The Bianconeri suffered defeats to Udinese and Roma before drawing with Chievo at the weekend and sit in 16th in the Serie A standings.

They have also been handed a blow with the news that midfielder Claudio Marchisio could miss up to a month with an adductor injury, while Sami Khedira is out for the long term with a thigh problem.
