Schalke

Last updated: Tue 19 February 2019 23:27
In Brief

Drew at the weekend and have had very mixed form of late. Alessandro Schopf and Benjamin Stambouli both out. Omar Mascarell banned for this match. Steven Skrzybski and Guido Burgstaller have a chance of featuring.

Looking Back

Teenager Ahmed Kutucu has scored 2 in his last 3 starts since breaking into the starting team.

Have 2 wins and a draw from their 3 home Champions League matches so far this season.

Have gone behind in 13 of their 22 league matches this season and have taken just 2 points from those matches.

No individual player scored more than once in the group stages for Schalke. In 6 matches the team scored just 6 times.

Looking Ahead

Alessandro Schöpf and Benjamin Stambouli have both recently picked up injuries that could well be season ending.

Midfielder Omar Mascarell is banned for this match.

Steven Skrzybski and Guido Burgstaller were both getting close to being passed fit so they have a chance of making the squad here.

Points of Interest

Have only met each other once in recent years - a UEFA Cup match that ended 2 - 0 for City in 2008/09

Manchester City

Last updated: Wed 20 February 2019 08:17
In Brief

Scored 2 goals or more in all 3 away matches in the group. On fire going forward since turn of year. Stones and Jesus left at home. Bravo, Mendy and Delph set to miss. Kompany welcomed back.

Looking Back

City had yet another high-scoring game on Saturday when cruising past Newport in FA Cup thanks to 4:1 away win. Forward actions very impressive so far in 2019 – 46 goals scored in just 12 games.

Started Champions League campaign with unexpected home defeat, but 4 wins and draw in next 5 rounds stamped their dominance in group. Scored 2 goals or more in all 3 away matches to earn 7 points.

Looking Ahead

Coach Guardiola rested likes of Aguero, Sterling and De Bruyne at weekend, but now they all expected to start. However, now he left back home Stones and Jesus due to minor issues, with pair not risked ahead of League Cup final next weekend.

Apart from long-term absentees Bravo and Mendy, only other seriously injured player is Delph. Kompany returns to squad.

Points of Interest

Centre-back Laporte scored 2 goals in the group stage already and he is major threat from set pieces.
