Pre-buzz around the game
Guardiola and his side will be keen to continue the same brand of football they played against Arsenal. While it was termed as a hard-fought win, City was exceptional with their accurate passing, interceptions, and ball possession. Kevin De Bruyne is still a notable absentee as he recovers from injury. The last time both sides clashed, City walked away with a dominant 4-0 win. The visitors have their share of injury concerns as well with star defender Ivan Marcano and goalkeeper Mouhamed Mbaye out of action.
Who will win?
City are downright favorites considering their past record and their recent form guide. It remains to be seen if underdogs Porto can sneak in a win or force their opposition into a stalemate.
