TV: BT Sport; Fox Sport
Probably the action of the night inside Champions League will spot last seasons beaten finalist Juventus undertake current Premier League leaders Manchester City with the Ethiad Stadium.
Juventus the Italian Champions also have a terrible learn to Serie A losing twice and needing and eighty third minute penalty to earn a draw against Chievo for the weekend.
There became a large turnover of players inside the summer with Tevez, Vidal and Pirlo leaving plus a number of players to arrive.
The one bright spark for Juve may be the form of Dybala the young striker has scored three goals in four games for his new club and appearance to be a danger inside box everytime the ball actually reaches him. Playing up top with Morata the young Argentina has brought himself being a lethal finisher.
Paul Pogba is one in the best midfielders inside world but he's not played well so far this season and Juventus' season may revolve around if the french man could possibly get his form together.
Manchester City alternatively come into the bingo red hot having won five games from five inside Premier League so far in 2010. An injury to Sergio Aguero though may have dampened the expectation ahead of the bingo as the brilliant Argentine suffered a knee injury after a bad tackle within the Crystal Palace game. Raheem Sterling and David Silva who missed the sport at the weekend seem like fit to get started on tonight along with their inclusion might be a lift to Pelligrini .
With Kevin De Bruyne likely to end up on the bench there exists enough talent you will come to Manchester City to deal with missing Aguero but he'll almost certainly still be a loss of profits. Ya Ya Toure will appear to lead by example from midfield all of which will no doubt relish the process of playing against Pogba. This is a quality side but Manchester City have struggled inside the Champions League and perhaps they are playing a Juventus team that reached one more last season, although a whole new look Juve they have the core with the team that made it to one more.
While it could be easy to you need to Manchester City here given both teams form I dont still find it going to be so easy for City. While Juventus are struggling domestically and struggling to discover the right balance into their side I think Allegri will released a team tonight that wont lose.
In plain english I think the Italian side can come to Manchester trying to find a draw and I believe that without Aguero Manchester City are given to being held using a strong side like Juventus. I'm going to go ahead and take draw on a tiny play and relax and enjoy the tactical battle.
