Man City vs Borussia Dortmund: Team news

City have a fully-fit squad available as they prepare to host Dortmund.

The quadruple-chasing Premier League leaders have no fresh fitness concerns following Saturday’s victory at Leicester.

Dortmund star Sancho will not face his former club due to a thigh problem, while Dan-Axel Zagadou and Axel Witsel are also out for the visitors.

Man City vs Borussia Dortmund: What’s been said

City boss Guardiola: “The only thing I can say is that, with his age, he [Haaland] is an exceptional striker. The numbers speak for themselves and he’s a fantastic player – that’s all.

“To score that number of goals at his age is not easy to find. When that happens it’s because he can score with the right, the left, the counter-attacks, in the box.

“He’s a fantastic striker, everyone knows it. A blind guy would realise he’s a good striker. It’s not necessary to be a manager to realise it.”

Dortmund manager Edin Terzic: “We need to be at the top of our game in both legs; on it from the first second to the last, and maybe for extra time too.

“To overcome Manchester City would be something special. Guardiola is undoubtedly one of the best coaches in the world.

“For almost 15 years, his teams have dominated football.”
