Champions League - Manchester City vs Club Brugge prediction, team news, lineup

When Manchester City will face Club Brugge on Wednesday in Group A of the Champions League they will try to repeat their five-star performance. Pep Guardiola’s men eased to a 5-1 win when the sides met in Belgium on matchday four, but the Citizens are not exactly on cloud nine heading into this clash. Here is our expert guess on Manchester City vs Club Brugge football prediction for the Champions League match of the season.

Team news

Manchester City

Aymeric Laporte will miss the Manchester derby on Saturday due to suspension hence Pep Guardiola may start him here.

Ruben Dias will be benched and Guardiola may opt for John Stones and Nathan Ake over Laporte.

Oleksandr Zinchenko will also play defense to allow Kyle Walker and Joao Cancelo to rest for the night.

Club Brugge

In all three of their group games, Club Bruges had used the same starting XI but is obliged to make one change due to the suspension of midfielder Eder Balanta for accumulating too many bookings. Ruud Vormer should fill in for him.

Despite losing 5-1 to City in their previous match, Club Bruges have picked up four points from their first three group games, drawing with Paris Saint-Germain and defeating RB Leipzig away from home. Clearly, they should not be taken lightly.
